Introducing Camden Beer 2018, an exciting modern take on a Barrel Aged Imperial Pilsner!  Plus, you get a FREE gift tube while stocks last!

Camden’s ambition has always been to drag lager, kicking and screaming, into the craft beer fold and Camden’s Beer 2018 is proof of just how far they’ve come! Camden jumped on the barrel-aging bandwagon back in 2014 but, unlike everyone else, they decided to experiment with their tipple of choice, lagers, and this year’s edition, inspired by the Old Fashioned cocktail, is an absolute stonker! The first wave of aroma is spicy orange from the Mandarina hops, it’s followed by a latent malty sweetness, and finally there’s bourbon and a little vanilla shining through at the end. To taste, the Mandarina hops shine through, supported by the light spiciness you’d expect from a noble hop descendent. The malts are sweet, with some bread dough and caramel coming to the fore. The end is all bourbon booziness and mellow barrel notes. Lager, Camden love it! Love. It. And, with beers like these, so should you!
