A friend of mine, we’ll call him Mr Authentic, saw my picture of the purchases I had made in Deveney’s the other day and speculated that I would be very disappointed by the ‘Hipster Juice’ aka the beers from the Camden Town Brewery. Well here’s what I thought, I’m going to tell you about two today and two tomorrow.
I started with the Camden Hells which is a Helles Lager. The first thing that grabbed me was the citrussy grapefruit smell. It went down shockingly easy and I would say it’s a Helluva good beer. (I find bad jokes and puns irresistible.)
Then I had the Camden Pale Ale. It has seven different kinds of hops, do you actually want to know all of them?Citra, Cascade, Columbus, Centennial, Calypso and a couple that don’t start with ‘c’, Amarillo and Simcoe. It’s not as hoppy as you might expect from that long list. I would describe it as a fairly one dimensional American style Pale Ale while it’s still very drinkable I’d choose the Hells over it. Tune in tomorrow for the next gripping installment.
