COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2014 On the lager side of pale ale. Not bad but not much depth of flavour. Decent, not brilliant.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 Lätt/Medium kropp, kanske lite väl tunn för min smak. Gott om små, fina bubblor. Saknar lite bitterhet. Kort eftersmak Systembolaget: 1441

Pours cloudy amber with low white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, light malt and bread. Taste is mellow bitter with light fruit to balance it. Abrupt finish. Light, smooth body with soft carbonation.

Senap (321) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2014
En ganska småtrist apa. Den här enligt min mening inga egenskaper som sticker ut. Absolut drickbar, men det finns roligare alternativ.

Bygers (636) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle 0,33l. Pours a golden colour with a short lasting white head. No lacing. Fruity aroma with citrus, tropical fruits, and green grapes. A hoppy aroma. It also has a fruity and citric flavour. Round hoppy bitterness in the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Franzen (273) - SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2014
Fresh hops, but too much just a very grassy aroma. Clear orange white head. Taste is better than aroma, nice bitterness well backed up by the malt., although some grass in the taste as well. Medium to full body oily average carb. Pretty nice but to grassy.

Nice pale ale with a pleasant hop aroma. The foam disappeared pretty quickly unfortunately.

Mad_Ferret (622) - SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle @ home, 27/6-14.
App: Clear golden amber, two finger off white head.
Aroma: Floral hoppy with grapefruit, zest and some pine needles. Crystal malt caramel and slight toast.
Taste: Fairly dry with zesty grapefruit, hay, flowers, zesty/spicy/weedy bitter finish.
Palate: Medium to light bodied, soft carbonation, light texture.
Overall: Pretty easy going and refreshingly hoppy. Maybe just a bit too dry for my taste. .
