Brewers Description of this Camping Beer:
“This crisp golden ale is built on the foundation of delicate light malts. This allows us to showcase some of the most interesting and effervescent American hops in a way we have never before done. We saved over 75% of the hops used in this recipe to add after the batch was boiled, allowing the distinct fragrance of grapefruit, apricot and pine to be preserved as much as possible in the finished beer. With a crisp, but subtle bitterness, a refreshingly light malt character, and a 4.5 ABV, this is the perfect warm weather beverage for those who think flavor is just as important as refreshment.”
Upland’s summer seasonal beer, Campside, is a real treat when the temperature starts to rise. It pours with a nice foaming head which releases an aroma laced with hops and apricot. The somewhat hazy golden facade properly prepares one for a light body. Hops are present but not overwhelming in the taste, yet it does start with an awakening sharpness. Toward the back mild citrus notes are introduced which give a very pleasant end. Campside is an extremely summery camping beer and has multiple alluring qualities.
