Cask at Ealing. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Dark yellow colour. Moderate malty and heavy hoppy aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Average moderate bitter finish. Oily palate.

Only OK. Has a lovely chestnut brown colour, but loses a point for being too fizzy when I first poured it. Has a caramel tastes, with a bitter hoppy aftertaste, some unpleasant metallic notes as well. Bit of a thin palate. This is a typical old school style English ale, but it isn’t quite there in terms of taste and body.

Bottled - clear copper appearance. Aroma is yeasty (dough) and malt (caramel). Nice malty sweet taste with a balancing bitter aftertaste - possibly slightly too sweet. Minimal carbonation. Nicely drinkable

Cask handpull at The Crosse Keys London as Mordue Radgie Gadgie, 4.8%. Rose gold pour, pretty clear and still with a small foamy beige head. Aroma is bread, straw and apple. Body is smooth with soft to low carbonation. Taste is apple-forward, bready, teacake, light floral astringent hop tang in the finish. Overall, a decent bitter.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2017 Caramel and malty flavours. Floral fruity taste with slight soapy hint.Mild on palate. However I have a cold today. Fair strength. Not as good second time. Aroma not memorable and taste was also lowered.

Butelka 500ml. Ciemno-zloty kolor. Piana biala , dosc obfita,utrzymuje sie dosc dlugo. Chmiele w zapachu plus slody i ciastka. W smaku dosc plytkie:ciastka slod suszone owoce . Wodniste i przecietne..

Mishnok (379) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2016
500 ml bottle. Amber with strong white head and lacing. Soft carbonation. Biscuity and hoppy, a little sweet. Bitter aftertaste comes through. Body a little thin. Very drinkable though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
