Description: She may look like your mum on a big night out but the Matriarch is much more than meets the eye; mutton dressed up in lambs clothing, slightly hazy and all foam on top. She has conspired with some dangerous characters and has risen to the top of the North East underworld. The juiciest rumours surround her life but they pale in comparison to the truth. She lives her life in the fast lane; tropical destinations and flavours abound. Citrus, pineapple and stone fruit coat the mouth and overcome the senses. She's generous with her perfume and her delivery is always fresh. She should be bitter from all she's seen and done (and the crazy amounts of hops used) but instead she is a fresh, hopped-up juicy number that's full bodied in every sense of the word.
