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.

Aroma has butter and toffee with some English hops. Flavour has English hops, butter, some toffee and diacetyl. Too English and too much butter here.

jpkeskinen (273) - FINLAND - DEC 17, 2013
From a bottle. A well balanced beer where the malts and hops both taste nicely. There’s some caramel in the taste.
