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!

johndoughty (3856) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2005
Bottled and despite its title brewed to celebrate the burning of a used Burton Uniion barrel rather than cricket. Pleasant slightly fruity flavour that left a pleasant aftertaste. Maintains the usual high Marstons standard for bottled beers.

4.1% golden colour with thin head, malt and hop aroma, malty taste with a hint of citrus, not bad but definitely not for Australians.

mike_77 (2963) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2007
Massive malt and hop aroma as the bottled is opened. Pours an amber colour with small head. Flavour is quite dry and hoppy but the texture is thin so this beer works as a thirst quencher.

rauchbier (3593) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2005
Bottled, from Rhythm & Booze in Brigg. Gold, lastingt fluffy white head and gentle condition. Delicate lemon sherbert in the nose, some vague sulphur notes and a gentle sweet graininess. Soft and slightly sweet in the mouth, some pleasant citrus hop notes developing but balanced by a low caramel note. Short but refreshing finish with a faint fruitiness and undemanding hop bitterness.
