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.

Pale amber beer with white frothy head, lacing and heavy carbonation. Full fruity, floral nose with strawberry and lemon. Taste has lots of strawberry, Forest fruits, lemon, a little grass, some mild bitterness. Palate is fizzy and wet, more like a lager. Refreshing.

CloakedDagger (1243) - - AUG 10, 2015
Bottle 33 cl. Pours amber with a slight haze and a lazing, white head. Some faint citrusy hops in the nose. Very thinbodied, bordering watery, some metallic accents and a dry finish. Probably has to be very fresh to be of any interest. 100815

Rather nice. Not too mad and very drinkable. Has that APA vibe without going too nuts with it.

JackMandarin (76) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle form Marks and Spencer (!) Pours pale gold. Clear. Aroma is lacking somewhat. Bit of light, biscuity malt. Flat lemonade. Faint hops. Bit dusty. Gentle carbonation. Ok palate. Taste is light lemon. Bit of orange. Cereal malt. Wee bit sweet then a firm bitterness comes through. Medium- length finish. My first Camden ale. Bit meh to be honest.

Scopey (9768) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2015
Can from from Fresh Fields Market, Croydon. It pours clear golden-amber with a medium white head. The nose is soft, toasty grain, cereal and sawdust. The taste is crisp, light bitterness, citrus rind, toasty grain, cereal, soap and light metallic twang with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. Pretty bland. So-so.
