Baird Brewing Company
Baird Ganko Oyaji Barley Wine (330ml)
Style: Barley Wine
Format: 330ml Bottle
Baird Ganko Oyaji ("Stubborn Old Man") Barley Wine gains its depth and complexity from simple enough sources; a grist bill featuring just English Marris Otter pale ale and caramel malts (as well as a hint of Japanese candy sugar), and a hop bill highlighting English Fuggles. The hedonistic pleasure plays out oxymoronically; bitter and sweet, heavy and light, exhilarating and exhausting.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Syrup and light spice nose and flavours. Subtle herbal notes. Dry oak finish and linger. Tasty. Some ageing would do this well.
