For the third instalment of our British Culture Archive series that showcases British hops, we brought in Geordie beer legends Wylam - a no-brainer considering their reputation for a midas touch with all things hop-forward. We dialled the dry-hop up to an equivalent of 32 g/l and, with some gentle support from Citra Incognito and Amarillo, put the under-appreciated UK hop Ernest in the spotlight. Ernest combines notes of apricot with a distinctively British spice character. Despite this, Ernest fell out of favour in brewing circles around the late 1950’s for its flavour profile that was deemed “too American”. With us and Wylam being appreciators of hops without borders, we wanted to delve into the archive and give it a fair chance to impress modern palates.
