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.

SzopPiwosz (207) - - SEP 12, 2014
Piana: Dość obfita, kremowa. Bardzo drobnopęcherzykowa. Kolor: Jasnobursztynowe, opalizujące. Zapach: Delikatny, słodowy w typie herbatnikw, tosta i orzecha. Subtelna nuta estrowa, rwnie 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! Rwnowaga i łagodność jest w Wandle wybitnego poziomu, przy czym nie ma mowy o nijakości czy zamuleniu z braku wyraźnych nut. Nie - tutaj jest spokj, 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 grnofermentacyjnymi naleciałościami bardzo wyspiarska, wyważona dobrą goryczką. Szkoda tylko, że zabrakło trochę intensywniejszych aromatw brytyjskich chmieli. No i wiadomo, mogłoby być tańsze - ale cena to sprawa wieloczynnikowa i wielodenna.

BigRor (12) - SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Cant remember the pub - somewhere in SW7 and it was late.... Flowery aroma, elderflower taste. Strong hoppy flavour but not too bitter - just how I like it, Beautiful golden amber colour, but perhaps served a little cold? Head was frothy and disappeared quite quickly, but by then Id drunk more than half of it. One of my recent favourites.

Regular at the Mag & Pie, Brentford. Hoppy taste without bitterness, like a lighter Sussex Best. Couldnt ask for a better springtime session ale.

From a bottle. A well balanced beer where the malts and hops both taste nicely. Theres some caramel in the taste.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Cask at the Magpie & Crown, Brentford, 29th Jan 09, with tashi. Coppery amber with a small head. Grassy hop aroma with some spice and vanilla hints. Honeyed malt sweetness is nicely layered over the hop flavours (which are very Harveys-esque). Very good for a first effort.

StueyD (1581) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2013
A mid golden yellow coloured beer with a frothy but weak white head. A light, biscuity malt aroma, with hints of oat and corn, plus a background fruit hop smell. Dry mouthfeel. A light, yet distinctive, dry malt taste, packed with cereal flavours, then a slightly grassy, hop flavour comes through to add a balanced bitterness. A very quaffable, dry and malty finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bobinlondon (1295) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2009
Handpulled cask at the Bree Loiuse, Euston. Light amber with a white head. Aroma of bread and english hops. Very ascertive fuggles/goldings dusty dry bitterness with late developing fruit notes.Reminds me of Youngs ordinary bitter 20 years back. Decent and session worthy.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask handpull at le Gothique beer festival.
A superb clean golden brown colour with a huge, lasting frothy white head. Beautiful green and grassy hops upfront with some excellent pale malt underneath with just the right level of sweetness giving superb balance. The faint farmyard and wheaty notes really give it some character. Good dry bitter finish with some pleasing citric notes late on. Just enough to be the little bit different. Excellent creamy smooth palate with a tiny resinous sting. A little homebrewy but works very well overall.

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%.
