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.

33cl bottle on the roof terrace at Selfridge’s. A bright golden pour with fast fading white head; citrusy aroma; sharp grapefruit bitterness. A clean an simple citrusy ale.

JackMandarin (62) - 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 (8999) - 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.

Välkommen till den låga alkoholhaltens förbannelse. Nu ska vi inte vara förspråkare av överdrivna alkoholhalter men att kasta bort potenta smaker på en klen styrka borde vara straffbart.

Bottle beer merchants.com Pored well, with a good whiff of hops but the flavour is a real let down. Has got some hops but there is a strange minerally metallic thing going on. Licked the nose though.

zesty, grapefruit aromas, gold colour body, flavour of pine and metal maybe a bit of digestive biscuit in the finish. bit lame considering its inspired by hop heavy american brews...
