CAMDEN HELLS

This beer got its name by being a Helles / Pilsner hybrid. Made with a Pilsner malt from Bamberg (one of only two breweries outside Germany to use this type), Bavarian lager yeast, and Perle & Hallertauer Tradition hops, this 4.6% ABV beverage from the Camden Town Brewery is exactly as described on the label: “Clean, crisp and dry, it’s the beer we always wanted to drink, and the reason we started our brewery. We hope you agree.” Yes, I do, and I’m not the only one. Because this lager won the International Brewing Awards Champion for Keg Lager in 2013, the Bronze Medal European Beer Star in 2013, and the International Brewing Awards Silver Medal in 2015. It is wonderfully balanced, and while it won’t be all things to all beer drinkers (especially the stout & IPA drinkers), it should provide a very pleasant drinking experience to the majority of those who like some nice amber suds.

AF&TB Camden Hells & Unicron

Now, despite what is said about all the great toy lines of the 1980s in the unintentionally hilarious “documentary” Deception of a Generation, I really don’t have a lot of demon-based toys in my collection. Not really. Three? Maybe five, at most? Out of thousands, that’s a pretty low percentage. But out of those, this guy, Unicron, is probably the most Hellish. He’s not only the Cybertronian equivalent of Satan, he turns into a large, world-devouring planet, and once he’s swallowed you and your continent, his digestive system is something right out of Dante Alighieri's Inferno, with giant crushers, shredders, acid vats, smelting pits, rending claws, and who knows what else. And you’re alive for all of this. But not for long. This is the Takara 2010 Unicron, retooled from the original Armada Unicron of 2002 to look more like his appearance in the 1986 cartoon movie (which took place in 2005), whilst retaining all the original toy’s gimmicks. The only problem is, this is like the fifth or sixth use of the mould, and the wings are a little loose and don’t pose as well as the first release.

Drink this if you also like: High-quality lagers, malty beers, and deeply refreshing brewskis.
