COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottled.
We brew Wandle Ale using traditional methods and materials sourced locally from English producers. We are proud to use Maris Otter malt from Warminster Maltings, one of the few remaining floor maltings in the country. We use a combination of traditional Fuggles and Goldings hops varieties, together with the more modern Boadicea hedgerow variety to flavour our beers. All of the hops used in the brewing process are whole leaf which give Wandle its distinctive hoppy taste and aroma. At 3.8% abv Wandle Ale is a well balanced thirst quenching session ale.

jjsint (1397) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Cask at the Free Press, Cambridge. Dark gold, fairly clear. Quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is sulphur, hickory smoke and butterscotch. It’s not off - the condition is in fact excellent - but it’s... odd somehow. Taste has a slight malty sweetness but the buttery astringency rears its head again for the finish. Not for me.

Rather bland tasting bitter, would expect more from a bottled beer, this is just brown beer.

KoNrRiI (765) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2015
0.568 tap. Delicate hazy amber color and a small but persistent, white head. Malty aroma of delicate yeasts and some flowers. Taste is subtle, caramel, malty, buttery - standard. Light body, slick texture, and an entirely flat carbonation. Finish is short and meager. Overall a very mediocre ale.

Towey1989 (604) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2015
Cask at The City Inn, Truro. A clear pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of orange, caramel, grain, subtle biscuit, some apple and floral hops. Taste is the same of grain, biscuit, orange, caramel, apple but only subtle floral hops. Light bodied and a soft carbonation. A bittersweet grainy finish. Drinkable but quite a sweet bitter. Ok.
