#1 Admiral

Flavour Intensity 9/10

Our Admiral beer was launched in August 2014 at the Cumberland Arms, Byker, and has since won a silver award at the Beamish Hall beer festival. This beer was the inspiration for our project so we have brewed it again to kick things off. The Admiral hop as a pronounced orange marmalade character, resinous and citrusy.
Our friends at Britishhops.org.uk say ” Admiral was released in 1996 by Horticulture Research International (HRI) at Wye College in the UK and derived from Northdown and Challenger breeding lines.  It is a tall hop, resistant to downy mildew, but only slightly tolerant to wilt and susceptible to powdery mildew.  It grows vigorously, produces small compact cones and harvests well.”
