What the label says:

The original Mordue Brewery was situated on Wallsend village green and run by Joseph Mordue a brewer of distinction in the 19th Century.  In 1995 over 100 years later, two brothers  revived their range of beers gaining both local and national awards.

Radgie Gadgie is a strong, easy drinking northern ale with balanced hops, fruit and malt and a long lingering finish.  Champion Strong Bitter Award winner 1998.

What the Beerdrinker says:

The Beerdrinker cannot imagine that Wallsend ever had a village green, so had no idea what to expect from this beer.  It is another honey coloured beer, but with a really lively head that stays throughout the drink.  It has a very sweet fruity smelling nose though tastes of golden syrup with a bitter finish.  The beer is sticky and clings to the tongue causing the lingering bitterness.  It is almost, but not quite a really good beer.
