meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle@Home, label said just Camba Pale Ale. Very easy, very refreshing. Could probably drink this all day. So, a good session ale. Does resemble a English Pale Ale but still very German.

Usko (171) - Bavaria, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2013
0.33l bottle. Cloudy yellow color, thin white head. Aroma is all about hops: grass, herbs, some grapefruit and other citral notes. Same goes for the taste, the body is created very light to accent the above-named hopnotes. Medium carbonation.

A good, spicy german APA. With their hands tied and their eyes blindfolded the Germans still make the best beer, and Camba Bavaria is a pretty good example of this. Got this on draft in Aarhus, and it’s just bittersweet perfection. Peppery notes and fruity palate, this is just about as perfect as any unfiltered American origin pale ale.

lusikka (6267) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2013
330 ml bottle as "Camba Bavaria Pale Ale". 5,2% ABV, 12,1% Stammwürze.
Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a large foamy head with good retention. Aroma of perfume, kiwi, sour dough and some mild orange notes. Flavour is pretty much ruined with strong and pungent metallic notes, mild floral notes, some orange and bread. Light bodied, very smooth and creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Everything else seems to be in a good condition, but the flavour is completely horrible. I like the mouthfeel especially. Hopefully other batches are in a better condition flavour-wise.

BeerViking (2494) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle, cloudy yellow-gold with a melon nose and a white head. Soft and fruity, sweetish, gentle bitter edge. More like a hoppy weiss than a pale ale.

Golden pour. Big white head. Lacing. Big citrus hop note. Malty up front quickly followed up with bitter grapefruit. Bitter and dry finish. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thank you, Norbert Dubowy for bringing this home from Germany. Clear light brass color with a rough sea of a head - 2" that slosh up the side of the glass, lots of rocky wave peaks, lasting for the entire drink. Serpentine streaks of lace. Taste is light malt infused with grapefruit that grows as it moves across the palate, finally finishing with lingering malt. No big deal as far as complexity is concerned, but a highly satisfying drink, with or without food. Too bad Americans can’t find it here.
