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.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Appearance: Clear amber with cm thick white head. Aroma: Biscuit, orange marmalade, pepper, floral and grassy. Taste: Low sweetness and bitterness with medium sourness. Biscuit, pepper and slight citrus notes. Palate: Smooth thick texture, medium body, prickly carbonation, abrupt bitter finish and slightly astringent. Comments: Very easy to drink, good session beer and refreshing. Very enjoyable and left a glass lace. The bottle I had was 4.2%.

Osprey87 (2028) - WALES - AUG 21, 2013
Pint in Camden JDW. Takes a few minutes to settle, forms a clear orange/brown with cm of dense head. Smells toned down caramelly, yeast, some citrus. Flavour is a little surprising - medicinal lemon to start, some caramel malts with a mild bitterness. Finish is sweetish, belgian yeast and lactic. Nowhere near as bad as I was expecting - quite interesting actually.

#7 - Bitter, nice bitter, but no better than a 5. The has made me realise that a lot of the beer on offer is very bland, more effort seems to go into the marketing of these beers, such as the name, design of tap / bottle, than actually the brewing.

Niall73 (1866) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Cask. Clear golden/amber colour. Nice white head. Not much going on aromawise. Some maltiness and a touch of honey maybe. Malts and sweet dark sugar notes. Slight bitterness. Pretty average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Palme (3546) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2013
0.5l bottle. This is a crystal clear golden one with a small light islandy just off-white top. The nose has citrus, it’s on the light floral side. The mouthfeel is soft and oily while the carbonation is average. In the taste: More citrus, some zest, it feels fresh, clean and actually somewhat good. Easy and lightdrinkable. 27.04.2013
