COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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

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

Oakes (12234) - 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 beer’s ingredients show here.

BlackHaddock (3515) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2013
Hand-pulled pint in The Albion, a Marston’s owned pub in St Georges’s, 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.

jmgreenuk (4130) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2013
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.

prawlie (1115) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2013
Pint at the Star in Tideswell. Smooth, bitter, slightly chewy and buttery. Red-brown, clear with a creamy head. Ok aroma, nothing special. Very plain, smooth but dull.

salvaticas (413) - - MAY 24, 2013
Cask, pours a classic amber. Solid bitter taste, but no aroma. Not so bad, would have again for a low ABV bitter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (7955) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Cask at the Prince Of Wales, Twickenham - 30/09/12. Badged as the house beer "Bank’s - Prince of Ales". Clear golden with a thin white head. Malt forward nose, apples, almost cider like, toffee. Taste follws from this fruity apple notes, orchard fruits, malt. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation leading to a bitter sweet finish. Boring.

Looks a great pint, and it probably was back in the day. This beer struggles to entice, when such great, flavoursome, characterful beers are now being brewed. A dinosaur of a beer, hanging on by it’s fingernails and a loyal following of BBB drinkers.
