Marston’s has launched Revisionist – a new series of beers that aims to show case the brewer’s five regional breweries, beginning with a lager from Wolverhampton. Revisionist Craft Lager has been created at its Park Brewery location and the man behind the beer, Simon Yates, has worked to blend an old world continental style while bringing in elements of new world hops. The beer, which is the brand’s first keg lager in 30 years, has used lager malt, a mixture of German Hallertau Magnum, Tradition, and Slovenian Styrian hops, as well as dry British Admiral and Boadicea hops. The end result is a refreshing four per cent session beer that has elements of citrus orange marmalade. With its Revisionist series, Marston’s has given its brewers the opportunity to rework classic styles with their unique ideas, while also using more contemporary ingredients and techniques.

Pint on draft. Crystal clear straw colour with a good white head. Very light floral aroma. Honey, light spice, floral notes and a lightly bitter finish (though still more bitter than might be expected). Not a bad effort for a craft lager. Marston’s attempts at craft beer have been generally disappointing to date so I hope this marks the beginning of an upward trend. Interested to try the Saison and wheat beer in the series.

foxo82 (815) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2013
On tap at Cross Keys, Nottingham. No aroma. None. Taste is slightly bitter banana water with no length to the finish. Really, really bad.

renffisch (869) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Keg at Henry’s Green Park. Bright golden colour with a creamy steady white head. Fine carbonated look. Light citric nose and subtle hoppy flavour. For a lager very enjoyable.

erickok (4466) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2013
Light fizzy golden body with creamy head. Aromatic hops, crisp malt base, light yet pleasant. Light bitterness, enough malt base. A good step up from a mass market lager, as a beer geek not spectacular. But well made and a good idea. Cheers! (Half pint at The Star Bishop’s Stortford)

Keg, Bulls Head, Youlgreave. Pale gold with carbonation. Aromas are cereal grain with crisp lemon and some nuttiness. Toasted with hints of mandarin. Flavours are grainy malts with a nutty lager like character. Lemon with dusty, peppery carbonation. It’s only keg but I quite liked it.

Keg at The Kildare Lodge, Minehead, Somerset. Pale straw to gold, no head. What can I say, if this is an attempt at Craft Keg then it has simply failed, there is no flavour or character. A cynical attempt at jumping on the band wagon.
