Pours amber with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows floral and spicy hops with soft honey and biscuity malt underneath.
Lots more biscuity malt as a flavour, like a German pils. More spicy and herbal hops too followed by a refreshing bitterness.
Nice moderately high carbonation.

A foggy deep amber colored beer. A fluffy off-white head with some lacing and good curtains.

Smelling of nuts, honey, pine and soap.

Tasting sweet honey bread, orange marmalade and grape-fruit zest.

Low carbonation, a soft texture. A medium body with a good dry finish.

In all an extremely well balanced brew, and on 4.0% it is really much action per %.

A very solid pale ale. Amber colored with a light head. Carbonation is lively but not overly done. Solid balance of hops with a lingering light bitterness

CAN
Pale amber with shapeless off-white scum. 3.75
Skunk and grapefruit skin nose. 3.75
Caramel shortbread with orange Squirt, and light resin hops. 3.5
Bit of herb to end and slightly sticky linger.
Thin, slight cling, round. 3.75

Cascade, Columbus, Amarillo, Centennial, Simcoe, Calypso and Citra

US hops in beach bar doses; a can for all seasons. 4% (yes, different ABV on tap and packaged - SOP for UK breweries), so how much are you gonna complain? But there are far better hoppy beers even just in London. Certainly doesn't play like a 7 hop monster.

Stick to lagers, Camden. 3.75

Pours a gold colour, with slight cloud. No head; listless. Looks a bit meh.

Smells fruity, delicious. Big lychee character with honey, apple, and a touch of mandarin. Maybe a bit sweet, but appealing.

Taste is fruity upfront, a bit light. Gets a bit nutty, light midway then a bit yeasty. Decent but yeah, a bit light on hops with bitterness taking a back seat to yeast. Dry, not bad, but nose promised a lot and taste could use more bitterness, even for a pale ale.

Decent body, lingers quite nicely.

Not a bad pale but not quite enough marriage between the nose potential and taste deliverance.
