575: Camerons | Old Sea Dog

The Brewery: “Based in Hartlepool, Camerons Brewery is now back in family hands since we purchased the brewery in 2002. Our philosophy at Camerons is to offer our customers high quality beers and lagers brewed at the Lion Brewery as well as a full range of products from other major breweries and suppliers.”

The Beer: “A classic North-East brown ale recipe with the addition of Amarillo hops to give it a lovely peach hop aroma and flavour.”

It’s probably thanks to Cameron’s that this blog exists at all. You see it was a pint of Castle Eden back in 2007 that got me into real ale after nearly twenty years of drinking lager. This beer is part of their Anchor range which donates 5p of every pint sold to the RNLI – a worth cause indeed. Sadly I didn’t enjoy it much – there was nothing at all wrong with it but the flavours weren't well received by my awkward palate. 4.3% A.B.V.
