"This beer is brewed using special Burton brewing water drawn from the hills. The quality of water used at Marstonís Brewery is critical to the finished beer - the well water in Burton-on-Trent gives an unusually clear, bright bitter."

Towey1989 (1658) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2016
Cask at The Cattle Market, Leek (Marstons) A clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, fruits, slight biscuit and some earthy, grassy hops. Taste is similar of caramel, fruits, slight biscuit, subtle mineral and some earthy, grassy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, dry, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. A extremely simple, bland bitter. Itís ok for a session beer.

Cask @ The Beehive, LGW

Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of fruits, bready malts and earthy notes. Taste is watery, smooth and mildly crisp with some maltiness and grassy notes. Finish is smooth and easygoing with hints of malts. Quite generic English bitter

Cask in the Manifold Hotel, Derbyshire. Amber with a cream head. Slightly malty, but just bland and lacking in taste really.

Oakes (15292) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Amber, thin head. Aroma is not much, but it has a complex mix of yeasty fruits, mellow hops, toasty malts, minerally character - all the beerís ingredients show here.

BlackHaddock (6083) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2013
Hand-pulled pint in The Albion, a Marstonís owned pub in St Georgesís, Telford on 8th Sep 2013. Poured a good mid-amber colour with full white crown which lasted and gave some impressive lacing on the UK pint sleeve glass. Malty and fruity nose, with the same feel in the taste: a fine example of a UK basic Bitter, flavoursome and easy to drink with enough alcohol to allow a few pints to be supped without too much worry. Good session beer.

Cask at the White Swan, Solihull. Poured a clear dark amber with a big frothy white head. The aroma is weak malt. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with bags of malt, a little fruit and a hint of fudgy caramel on the smooth palate. This beer grew on me the more I drank and I would certainly order a other. Fine for a session.
