First seen as a one-off cask release at Ealing beer festival in July 2012. Released in bottles in August 2012.
The third beer in the Past Masters series was first brewed on Thursday, September 10th 1931. The origins of the Old Burton style have changed over the course of the 20th Century, but this version is brewed to the authentic recipe - a true recreation of a wonderful long-lost beer. A rich, golden ale with a big malt character and an incredible balance of sweetness and warmth on the palate.

mile (3129) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle. Amber, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light dark fruitiness, faint hoppyness. Body is moderate to heavy and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light dark fruitiness, light hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and sweetish, some caramel and light fruitiness, some grassy - herbal hoppyness, faint alcohol. OK although too sweet/too much caramel for me. Hoppyness and 7,3% make the finish bit drier, though.

(Bottle, 0.5 l - 02 Aug 14, from Alko Arkadia, 20130524) The beer poured mahogany coloured and clear. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had malts, fruity hops and hint of sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, fruitiness, sweetness, caramell, toffee and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, hoppy and bitter. Despite all the sweet flavours the end result was nicely balanced.

Marstonlad (469) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours brown with a mediocre white head. Malty aroma with some caramel, bready and biscuity elements; not much hop presence. Taste is sweetish and balanced towards malts, only a little hoppiness. Very bready, also nutty and fruity flavours. Medium body, average carbonation - could be a bit fuller. Nicely malty strong ale, drinkable despite strength.
