3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

What a nice golden ale this was, can be found in pretty much any offy, i thought it was to do with the ashes but apparently not, drank one to celebrate anyway. Sweetish taste and not as hoppy as other marstons beers.
