COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden Drop is brewed using floor malted Maris Otter barley, Fuggles and Goldings hops and a late addition of Styrian hops. Special Burton water is also used to brew this beer; medieval monks discovered it was perfect for brewing as it helped create an exceptionally clear, bright bitter. Marston's Golden Drop is a refreshing, well-balanced beer, with hoppy notes and a hint of orange. Exclusively brewed for Safeway.

Golden beer with a chocolate orange aroma and a hopped/dry typical Marstons flavour. Overall a pretty good pale ale.

Orange flavours dominate which comes as a shock as this is really a pale ale. Generally speaking I dont rave about fruity flavored beers but this is the exception.It also has the hard to describe Marstons signature tanginess.A tasty and refreshing beer.

rauchbier (3609) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2003
Bottled. Faintly hazy orange gold, lumpy white lasting head and moderate condition. Orange aromas, but more sweet than citric, with some underlying maltiness. Quite dry in the mouth with an obvious orange note, chalky and dry in the finish

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2003
Light citrusy hoppy nose. Light golden hue with fast disappating head. Highly citrusy taste predominantly lime but with orange and lemon. Bitter hoppy finish. An unusual beer.
