Duchy Old Ruby Ale

Duchy Originals Organic Old Ruby Ale is made with a historic malt called Plumage Archer which gives this beer a deeply pleasant roasty malt flavour. The bright amber-ruby colour sparkles, and the gentle nose of biscuity and fruity malt make this a great session ale. The slightly tea-leafy and floral hops break through enough to make this a nicely well balanced beer.

This is not a flavour bomb by any stretch of the imagination, and it falls into a cross between a Best Bitter and an Amber Ale in style, but don’t be put off. This is a well-crafted traditional style ale that makes it a breeze to drink three or four in an evening – perhaps accompanied by a steak and ale pie!

ABV: 5%

Best Served 10-12°C

    First time I hear about this beer! To my knowledge not available in Quebec. Bought it at LCBO. Not a killer, but fair. First impression: I liked the colour. I then noted the distinctive taste of barley. I was expecting more out of the hopp and found that it could be more carbonated but, over all…I liked it. Above all I liked the idea behind this beer: charity! I will buy it again for the fun of drinking the same beer as a Royal, without the opportunity of driving an Aston Martin. In the meantime, a Beau’s brewed in Vankleek Hill, Ontario, by Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company Ltd will do.
