COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised bottle only.
NOTE: Only ratings for the bottled version should be entered here; the cask version has a separate listing.
A very easy drinking lightly coloured pale ale, crafted to commemorate the burning of a used Burton Union barrel. It delivers a sharp thirst quenching bitterness, perfectly complemented with a slightly lemony citrus aroma. The perfect beer to accompany an English Summer. Definitely not for Australians!

wimpyjoe (3980) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle from Morrisons. Bought during the 2013 series in England, but had to wait its turn to be drunk until now. The Ashes themselves have been both won and lost by my nation since it was purchased. Copper-gold with a thin head. Has a light hoppy nose and taste but manages to remain unspectacular even so.

jamesie1857 (1401) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2013
500ml bottle from Morrisons - Red body, white lacing head. Bit of malt and caramel on the nose and taste. Other than that, bland and boring.

OwainTurner (324) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Thick cloudylike head, golden colour. Slight hoppy smell, nothing amazing. Smooth, but unbalanced flavour... Sour and unusually bitter. Slight fizz. Smooth like oil. Tastes a lot better when allowed to warm up a little

allmyvinyl (3432) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Pours a golden yellow with good white head. High carbonation. Faint touch of lemon on an otherwise malt toffee nose. Classic biscuity bitter. Some hop bitterness towards the end. Easy drinking.

JorgeLee (1202) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle at the Village. Light golden colour. Fairly standard Marstons beer. If this does have Cascade in it as the bottle suggests then they need to do it more. But it was drinkable enough after a hot day’s play.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - JUL 21, 2013
Cheap bottle in Lidl. Another undistinguished homogenous any old ale. Nothing wrong with it just nothing to remark on. Some hop flavours near the end of drinking through the bottle.
