Camden Pale Ale Style: American-style Pale Ale ABV: 4.0% IBU: 40 Malt: Pale Ale, Cara, Munich and Wheat Hops: Cascade, Columbus, Amarillo, Centennial, Simcoe, Calypso and Citra (BOOM!) Available: 30 litre kegs and 330ml bottles The story: Inspired by outrageously hop-heavy American craft brews, we wanted to brew one of our own, only at a lower, massively-drinkable ABV. It’s our UK spin on an American classic. The taste: Punchy American hops throw out a big aroma of grapefruit, orange and tropical fruit. It’s a bright orange-gold colour. The body is subtle and clean and a golden platter for carrying the hops. The bitterness rolls in and then ends dry, making you thirsty for another gulp.

From 330ml bottle. Pours light golden with a thin head at first. Aroma is very appealing with peachy citrus fresh notes. Taste is a little citrus with some bitter aftertaste. A good beer for s summer barbecue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours tellow with medium carbonation and a fluffy white head. Aroma is nice with the Citra dominant. Light bready malts, lemon, pineapple and hint of herbs. Taste is underwhelming and very thin with a slightly unpleasant bitter finish. Had low expectations for this and was pleasantly surprised by the aroma and then disappointed by the taste. That said, could sink a few of these on a hot day.

Bottle at Gatwick Airport, London. Clear pale golden beer with a nice offwhite head. Bready hop aroma, citrus, caramel, some apples. Fruity bready flavor, grapes, hay, cardboard notes. Surprisingly boring.

I think "boom" is going a bit far. Hops are a bit subdued but add citrus to what is a malt led APA. Amber, clear, decent head.
