Gongoozler

Brewery: Holdens

Holdens brew this 4.5% beer. Gongoozler is brewed near Dudley, W. Mids. Active - 01/01/2006

Morning sunlight in colour, with a delicate hoppy aroma and a full and malty flavour, which leads to long dry and tangy finish. Brewed using Progress hops and Maris Otter malt, a contrasting and contradictory beer. A bruly traffling brew! Ever since the appearance of the first locks on canals they have been a source of fascination - not only as an engineering marvel providing a simple yet effective means of lifting heavy barges almost vertically, but also as a hive of activity as handles are turned, paddles lifted and gates are man hauled. Not surprisingly, therefore, locks have also proved a magnet for those who like to watch others working - and it is to the most infuriating of these examples that canal folk have given the name Gongoozler. Often the lockkeeper's dim-witted assistant, the Gongoozler is much more of a hindrance than a help, drifting around the lock gawping at everyone else working and invariably getting under everyone's feet and hampering their progress.
