COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2013
Keg at the Moon Under Water, JDW - London. Pours clear gold with a creamy white head. Aroma has notes of sweat, bread and cereal. Light sweet flavor with melon, plastic, grapefruit and mild bread. Light bodied with average carbonation. Slightly crispy cereal to finish with sugary bread, a but more plastic, dough, vague citrus. Not awesome.

imdownthepub (10468) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2013
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.

leaparsons (8174) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2013
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.

DruncanVeasey (7249) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014
The White Swan, Solihull, 06/04/14. Chill-hazed brilliant gold skimmed with white. Dank mildewed old lemon and lime aroma. Dirty mildewed citrus taste with salvaging cashew and biscuit. Some really rank bean sprout, mould and mushroom off notes. Not clean. Served in cleaner nick can imagine it being decent. Hints of soapy flowery Cascade. But this sample undrinkable. Rerate pending....

DanielBrown (3848) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2014
Keg at Wetherspoons (under Central Library), Birmingham. Thought I’d rated this ages ago. Quite pleasant sweet lager. Lacks a bit of lagery hop bite, but it’s ok.

erickok (3699) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - 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)

On tap during london vacation. Golden with white head. Aroma is faint and pleasant; honey, flowers and perfume. Taste has a pleasant maltiness, dry, honey notes and flowers.
