worldbeertaste (1756) - West Midlands, - OCT 22, 2012
Pale orange amber with a creamy, lasting, lacy off-white head. Smells of toadted malt, light fruits and hops. Boring. Medium oily body. Tastes of toasted malt, caramel and light bitter hoppy FInish. Boring and uninteresting.

Cask at the Friars, Bridgnorth. Light gold, very little head. Nice but hardly perceptible scent of grapefruit, rhubarb and mango. Gentle sweet taste. Thin, thin body. Almost tastes like a low/no alcohol beer. Itís nice, but very little to it. And Iím having it in perfect condition. I darenít think what it would be like otherwise...

Vladivostok (339) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2015
Pale golden with a pleasant citrus aroma. Flavour is of citrus without being overpowering. Gentle bitter finish. Quite likeable and more refreshing than most Marstonís beers.
