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.

panzerwolf (150) - FINLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Pours light copper. Taste has hops and bread and some fruits, just a little bit of bitterness but it’s not obtrusive. Ok beer but nothing special for me.

On cask at White Star, Stoke. Pours amber with white head. Biscuity bitter brew with a light hop finish. It’s OK.

SzopPiwosz (178) - - SEP 12, 2014
Piana: Dość obfita, kremowa. Bardzo drobnopęcherzykowa. Kolor: Jasnobursztynowe, opalizujące. Zapach: Delikatny, słodowy w typie herbatników, tosta i orzecha. Subtelna nuta estrowa, równie subtelna nuta kwiatowa. Smak: Podbudowa średnia, tostowo-orzechowa. Delikatna owocowość. Tekstura: Ciało średnie, piwo bardzo gładkie, delikatne, aksamitne. Nasycenie: Minimalne. Goryczka: Średnia. Pijalność: Bardzo wysoka. Ach, ile stereotypowej powściągliwości w tym piwie! Równowaga i łagodność jest w Wandle wybitnego poziomu, przy czym nie ma mowy o nijakości czy zamuleniu z braku wyraźnych nut. Nie - tutaj jest spokój, ale w postaci koncertu, a nie szumu. Nuda - ale w pokrętnie pozytywnym tego słowa znaczeniu. Pijalność i sesyjność potężna, nic tylko wlewać w siebie wiadrami. Słodowość z górnofermentacyjnymi naleciałościami bardzo wyspiarska, wyważona dobrą goryczką. Szkoda tylko, że zabrakło trochę intensywniejszych aromatów brytyjskich chmieli. No i wiadomo, mogłoby być tańsze - ale cena to sprawa wieloczynnikowa i wielodenna.
