COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Radical road is a 6.4% pale and very hoppy ale. Three different hops are added to the kettle at five different stages during the boil. Radical Road is then hopped in the fermentation vessel and finally the beer is dry hopped in the conditioning tank before the beer is bottled. Beer Facts: OG: 63 PG: 13 IBU: ~50

Keg at the CP&K Pimlicoco, 12/12/14. Clear copper hues topped with a moderate off white swirl. Nose is biscuit, caramel, citric peel, malt notes. Taste comprises caramel malt, vanilla, bitter orange, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light bitterings. So so, lacks hops, trumped up ESB!

mighty_meadow (247) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - NOV 9, 2014
500ml bottle from Marks & Spencer, Kilmarnock (£2.20) Pours a cloudy amber with lovely contrasting white head. Lots of fruitiness, mostly exotic, mango etc, Tastes like a mixed bag of kid’s sweets at times. Not as hoppy as you would expect which is the only minus point. Doesn’t quite feel as strong as 6.4% either which is good or bad depending on your personal preference.

spacecube (974) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2014
500ml bottle, clear golden brown with a white head. Aroma is caramel and honeyed malt, biscuit and orange marmalade. Am getting more malt flavours than hop, a little sweet. Soft carbonation.

Bootlegger007 (70) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2014
Huge frothy head with a golden amber appearance, aroma of fruits and herbs, some great flavours but missing some balance between initial taste to the mild bitter aftertaste, had a slick texture with a lively carbonation.
