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.

500ml brown bottle. Clear gold pour. Head is white, about one finger of foam. head retention is decent, lots of sticky foam around the edges and a thin layer of foam over the liquid. Nose has mild caramel tones, light biscuity notes, grain, light UK type hops giving a little citrus, but mild overall. Taste has grains, light sweetness from malts, light hints of orange hops. Finish has a slight orange peel note, low bitterness, faint caramel and grains lingering as well. Body is light, smooth and mild carboantion. Decent session bitter.

Grumbo (1507) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle from a supermarket near Gt Portland St station, London. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of light fruit, hop and grass. Medium sweetness, light bitterness. Light body, thin/waek texture, average carbonation. Label says 4.2% abv not 3.8% though seemed less. Disappointing.
