This libation, which we define as a 'Balanced Dry Bitter' (a Bitter), has a strength of 4.5% ABV.
Sambrook's brought out Junction Ale as their first anniversary ale. Being located close to the UK's busiest railway station, it was decided that people needed another reason to go 'Up the Junction' and Junction Ale was born. In style it is very different to Sambrook's Wandle and was brewed in tribute to a good friend of the brewer who often complained about 'too much flowery aromas in beers these days!'
Junction is brewed as a traditional English bitter, using only English hop varieties, lots of crystal malt and a touch of roasted barley to give it an inviting auburn colour. Great with a steak pie or a roast dinner, Junction is a fine compliment to Wandle Ale, but loses none of its drinkability. Just treat it with a bit of respect, at 4.5% it is a little bit stronger than Wandle.....
