London Craft Beer Review: Camden Pale Ale from Camden Town

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's London craft beer review is for Camden Pale Ale from Camden Town.

Share It!

Camden Pale Ale was hoppy and coppery, bitter guava, light flavours so not the heavy resinous you get in some IPAs. Very nice for drinking with food.

I had this beer at the top of 20 Fenchurch Street. Also known as the Walkie Talkie, this building's top floor is a botanical garden. It is free to go up but you do need to book to get a free ticket.

Mr. even-star works in the building so I have been up a few times now and it is always well worth it. The views are amazing and, even though it is always kind of the same view, the view is still ever changing depending on the time of day or the season. A neat freebie and a place for a drink. There's no craft beer on tap but they had a few bottled choices including this one. Or you can opt for a fancy dancy froufrou cocktail.

There's also a bistro there which, considering the location and the fact that it's even just London, offers a reasonable lunch. Like a gourmet burger and fries for £15.
