Old Ruby Ale

Another purchase by my wife.

I'm not sure what the name of this is. There are names all over the label

Duchy Originals from Waitrose

Organic Old Ruby Ale
Plumage Archer
1905

If I were to hazard a guess, I'd go for Old Ruby Ale since it's the most prominent.


"A deliciously robust blend of hops and malt  including plumage"
WTF is plumage? Another term I'm not familiar with, other than thinking feathers. Thankfully, there are no feathers in this beer.

The aroma. I'm not sure. I could go with "smells like beer" as my son would say. I think there's a hint of sweetness to the aroma. It's nice and mild.

The color. What you see in the photo is pretty accurate. Clear. Reddish amber? Ruby? Duh.

The taste. Pretty smooth. Just the right carbonation. A little spicy sweetness. Very light bitter finish. If it's any help, my wife liked this one. She's not a fan of bitter.

Overall a decent beer, but there's really nothing that makes it stand out. I do like the colour though.
