I’m a big fan of ginger in beer, if done well, and this was done incredibly well. Really zingy and alive, but definitely full-bodied beer with ginger in it, rather than sickly-sweet ginger pop. It’s even better than the Leatherbritches one we enjoyed in Oxford a few months back.
It’s not to everyone’s taste (oops — missed the key part where Alex described it as ‘brilliant’).
It certainly doesn’t go with smoked fish.
We reviewed the Duke of Cambridge last May, and we’ve been back several times since. We like it, but it’s not bloody cheap.
