Bodgers Barley Wine
"A strong bottle conditioned barley wine described as heavenly nectar! "
A golden chestnut ale with citrus fruits, juicy malt and spicy hops. A unique style of beer with 'hop wine' overtones.
Brewed with 100% pale Maris Otter malt and large quantities of Fuggles & Goldings for aroma. Brewed in the style of a very strong India Pale Ale.
