Another ale tonight, this is courtesy of Mordue Brewery. There Radgie Gadgie is described as being a strong easy drinking northern ale. I am really looking forward to reviewing this ale as i have heard great reports about this brewery. This ale has won " Champion Strong Bitter of Britain Award 1998".
Aroma: There is a citrus aroma of this ale possibly orange with a bitter lemon tinge to it. There is a biscuit malt smell which is
under pinned with a caramel sweetness.
Flavour: Well, well, well what have we got here. There are pockets of fruit exploding in the mouth, starting with oranges, lemon and a pleasant white grape sweetness. There is a heavy floral flavour, possibly pollen from the honey suckle flower and orange blossom. I can intercept a biscuit maltness which is sweetened with a grainy bitterness.
Finish: The flavour is sweet with a burst of citrus fruits followed by a pleasant bitterness.
