COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pasteurised and filtered. Bottled.
"Brewed almost as pale as lager and so smooth you will hardly notice it slipping down between the goals. A very pale ale brewed with our finest hand made malt combined with Fuggle and Golding hops and just a touch of fine aroma hop to add a citrusy, bitter tang to whet your whistle!"
Ingredients: Maris Otter malt; Goldings and Fuggles hops.

RichardGretton (4222) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2006
Bottle. Golden beer with a light head. The aroma is lightly caramel and hopped and the flavour is very dry, gasey, slightly caramel and watery. Overall a poor dry beer.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2005
From a cask. Head was small and off white. Good lacing. Light golden colour didn’t look right on a bitter. Floral, hoppy aroma and a citrus and cardboard taste. Not nearly enough lasting bitterness.

johndoughty (3859) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2004
A nice well balanced beer with a pleasing pale appearance. Some maltiness but all round a very well balanced example of this style. Marstons continue to produce some wonderful bottled beers-llong may they continue to do so.

FrankJohansen (3602) - Sabro, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2007
Bottle. Slightly hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma and taste of malts with fruity notes. Semi dry finish.

rauchbier (3593) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2004
Bottle, from Rythmn & Booze, Brigg. Gold, thin but lasting white head and gentle condition. Pleasant fruity and citric hop aromas with some background chalky malt. Good solid hop flavours in the mouth with some grainy malt and lots of hop bitterness in the finish without getting too pushy. Good for a moderately low alcohol Pale Ale.

BlackHaddock (3485) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
This beer was brewed to celebrate the 2010 World Cup (football, or Soccer to some) and the English teams participation. The beer will hopefully stay longer in the momory than the England teams perfomances will! Clear 500ml bottle, best before 31 May 2011, drank 2nd July 2010. I suspect it is the same beer that was brewed for the 2006 World Cup also, as it looks and tastes just like the review for that beer (that I’ve just read). The colour was light amber, the head a good white showing at first, it then fell away, but left some good lacing on the ’Old Speckled Hen’ vase shaped pint glass it was reviewed in. The aroma was hops all the way, as was the taste, bitter hoppiness, but not overly so, good dry aftertaste, with some malty sweetness trying to get through the hop flavours towards the end of the mouthfeel. A bit thin in the bodyfeel, but overall, not too bad.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2006
50 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Golden clear colour with a little fizzy head. Very noteable aroma of hops with a citrus note. Very nice and pleasant flavour of malt, caramel and hops. Ends up with a little bitter and dry finish, very nice balanced endeed.

tommann (2604) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a small head. Aroma is fruity malt, some skunk and metallic as well. Slightly spicy start. Nice strong fruity bitter finish but the skunk and metal are there throughout.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2004
Bottled, at the Head of Steam, Euston, London.
Golden with a medium bright white head. Malty, bready aroma. Simple and unchallenging but you can’t deny that it is clean and honestly presented.

Horrible beer. Artificial bitterness. Very watery and boring.
