Beer 27 - Mordue Brewery, Radgie Gadgie

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".

Mordue Brewery, Radgie Gadgie
ABV 4.8%

Looks: This ale pours a honey orange colour with medium carbonation. It has a one finger head which is foamy and white in colour. The head cleared very quickly but laced around the edge of the glass.

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.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10

What a fantastic ale by Mordue Brewery. This ale has a really good flavour and is definitely a great session beer. To find out more information about Mordue Beers please visit their website.
