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.

booldawg (46) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2013
Nothing on the bottle gave away what type of beer this may be. Pours a very light amber. Nothing really jumped out at me in this ale, was very ’middle of the road’ and didnt really dare to be different. Possibly a good ’first ale’ if you’re predominatly a lager fan - was a bit too standard for me.

Vogod (23) - FINLAND - FEB 15, 2013
Amber, thin head with strong lacing. Nasty, slightly skunky bad dog breath aroma, medium body. Citrusy, light, well hopped bitter. Nice bitter with bitterness bordering on IPA, but aroma ruins a lot.

Beerheart65 (1112) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2013
Clear amber with off-white creamy head about 2 fingers and medium long. Malty aroma has bread, bit caramel, dried dark fruits. Light body, soft but thin feel, dry and slightly bitter like finish is also, malty and earthy. Ok bitter but nothing remarkable.

visionthing (3315) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2013
50cl bottle (4,2% ABV) from Varnaveien mineralvann. Pours deep golden with a white head. Aroma is lightly malty with caramel, fruits and some hops. Hint of green apples too. A bit weak in flavour, almost reminds me of flavourful lager. Sweet and grainy with notes of caramel and a pretty light bitterness in the finish. Fairly easy to drink, but quite boring.

stravale (2395) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - FEB 7, 2013
Cask @ Haymarket, Edinburgh [050213]
Light amber, clear, dense white head, some lacing
Aroma of soft fruity malts, slight floral note, light sweet fruits
Taste of light caramel, touch of biscuit, soft fruity malts, touch of honey, its ok
Palate - thin to medium body, some oiliness. Finish - some buttery biscuit in the finish that was quite pleasant
Overall - I found this quite a nicely made mellow bitter for the abv

Beermack (712) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 20, 2013
50cl bottle. Pours amber with thin white head; not much lacing. Aroma is muted with slight fruity notes, some light grainy malt, bit of bread, some vegetal notes. Taste is fairly dull - some fairly chewy malt with hints of citrus and bread. Some stale cardboard notes too. Brief finish. Pretty surprised I stayed awake during this one - boring to say the least.
