COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
Brewed to one of our oldest recipes, using natural Burton spring water filtered through the gypsum beds of the Trent valley to produce a distinctively clear and bright full flavoured beer with a malty, biscuity taste. Although it is one of our session beers in terms of strength, it has a superb balance of malt and hop flavours which makes Marston’s Burton Bitter the first choice for many of our customers.

At Finkenkrug in Duisburg. Pours a red amber with a thick tan head. Angel is mild fruit, caramel, grain, wort. The taste is similar to the smell ending dry and fruity. Very light in body with fine carbonation.

Bottle from Sainsbury’s On the smell, maltiness, with touches of fruit On the taste, initial biscuity malt with touches of caramel, or burnt sugar. Then a lightly fruity middle and then back to a biscuity malty finish. Fridge filler.

beeebon (310) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2014
Pours copper colour with white frothy head which goes quickly. Smell is biscuity malt and a slight fruitiness but hard to tell which. Taste is lightly sweet, quite dry and average bitterness. Rather watery and a bit bland. Below average bitter but drinkable.

wheresthepath (1813) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle at YHA Grasmere. Dull amber with moderate cream hesd and a light fizz. Bland caramel throughout. Boring and too sweet. Mild grassy bitterness fails to redeem. This is a bit crappy.

dynamiteninja (1680) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle BB 30 April 2015. Amber body, some visible carbonation. Barely there off white head that instantly dissipates. Nose is red fruit, alcohol, stale hops, candy and caramel. Sweetish with a bitter finish. Pretty poor, but got from B&M for £1.09 or so.

StueyD (1467) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
A mid copper orange coloured beer with a weak off white head. A light, but balanced aroma, mild biscuity malt and a slight, lemony, hop aroma. Dry mouthfeel. There is a strange harsh, pithy bitterness to start off the taste. This soon disappears to be replaced by a dry, cereal, biscuity malt flavour, alongside a bitter, citrusy hop flavour. The finish is a bit lacking after the initial bitter hit.

Good colour. In general a bit thin and watery aftertaste let’s it down. Bread, hay, caramel.

I was really looking forward to that one but got a bit disapoointed as it did not develop that aromas and deep taste I would like to see from a bitter. Beside this, that beer is a bit sweetish and more malt dominated. Quite a good one at all but not exactly something I would call rocket science.
