shoestring (287) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Run of the mill, malty taste. Bit unbalanced. Prefer Marston’s epa if I want weak session ale

JohnRMurdoch (3414) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 28, 2014
500ml bottle from a friend. Orange brown, reasonable head. Oaty grain resin malt aroma. Leafy malt flavour. Bitter aftertaste. An old fashioned traditional supermarket bitter.

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2014
Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The aroma is quite light. A bit metallic with a touch of sweet toasted malt. Pretty bland bitter really. A touch of fruit and some soft spiciness.

JohnCook101 (350) - - DEC 20, 2014
Clear red copper, small off-white head. Light biscuity aroma. Not much on the palate. Biscuit, very light floral notes, a little fruit. Slightly watery. Not unpleasant, just... meh.

garthicus (2734) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle picked up by my mother in Liverpool. Appearance: Light red, quite a thick off white head. Aroma: plastic, grainy, very sweet, sickly. Flavour: sweet, sickly (again) light grain, some very slight bitterness. Not good

ERB92 (403) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2014
Caramel, fruits, grass and a hint of honey in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Light to medium body with a average carbonation. Overall an OK bitter, but quite boring.

TheJester (1963) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
500 mL bottle. Copper brown with very little head. Very little aroma and surprisingly little flavour. easily the worst of the Marston’s mixed-6 available in Ontario right now.

UXO (420) - CANADA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours clear pale amber with a one finger of light beige head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is biscuity pale malt, faint citrus, earthy hops. (5/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (5/10) Medium body tending to the watery, low carbonation, off-dry building bitter finish. (3/5) Pretty much a standard Marston’s bitter - think their EPA, except two shades darker in colour and flavour. The hops are a little more earthy than grassy, and the fruit is maybe a little more citrus than stone. Not a lot to really distinguish it beyond that, though - perhaps a marginally better drinker. (10/20)

PictouRx (149) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
Not a bad bitter, copper color, pours with a medium head, caramel like hints, smooth little bitter after taste, overall not too bad, part of sampler from LCBO, others to come.

cfrancis (2516) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2014
Pours light copper with a small off white top. Aroma is earthy biscuity malt with a small earthy hop. Taste is much the same, a nice balance of malt and hop. Nice drinker.
