LAUNCH: Camden 2016 barrel-aged lager

It's here – the now-annual barrel-aged beauty from Camden Town Brewery. And it's stunning...

Available in a limited run of 2,016 screen-printed 750ml bottles, Camden's Beer 2016 is a full-bodied freestyle lager with a deep red-brown hue, aged in cognac, tequila and bourbon barrels for 12 months, giving notes of dark rum, sweet treacle and cocoa, with a balanced hop bitterness and short finish.

Like a homemade brandy pudding, crack this beer open to share after Christmas dinner, brewed to toast the festive season or ring in the new year.
