>Camden Town Brewery Pale Ale


Visiting York yesterday with the Twissup gang gave me another chance to sink a couple of pints of Camden Town’s Pale Ale (4.5%abv). I’ve been wanting to get my hands on more since my initial sip in London a few weeks back, refreshing the throat and reviving the soul after a three- hour train journey. It’s just a great beer; straw-pale, light, packed with simple Grapefruit and Lemon flavour and aroma. A testament to the beautiful simplicity of a well-made pale with no airs and graces. I drank two of them – and sticking to one beer in Pivni is tough, as others will testify. I’m glad to see beers like this still being made, a beacon of simple pleasure in what can often become a high-concept, over-thought and overwrought beer landscape. Viva la Pale.

You can read up on Camden’s excellent-looking setup over on Pencil & Spoon here.

  1. >Good to see you again over the weekend mate. What happened to you in the end though .. didn't you make it to the final pub?I'm with you, I love this beer. It felt wrong to travel all the way to York and drink it though, so I didn't try it at Pivni. Down here, it's always hard to turn down.

  2. >Now then chunk! No mate, I didn't. What happened was I needed to be on the train by about that time as was being picked up, and the rook would have been too far away to make it. So I stayed in the trembling madness for one with the other part of the group and then left. Always good to catch up though mate. Will give you a shout when I'm in your manor next.

  3. >Do it! We can celebrate West Ham staying up with a pint of Camden Pale. 😉BeerBirraBier.

  4. >Mate – that's a deal. But not in Millwall, though, yeah?!!!
