Banks’s brewmaster Simon Yates’ red ale delivers full flavour, hopped at four stages using aromatic south Pacific Hop varieties from New Zealand imparting an exotic tropical bitterness with a dark fruit hop character.

gegwilson (1199) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Amber with a thin cream head. Plenty of fruity hop flavour to this with pineapple and a bit of caramel in the background. A little spiciness too. A little thin in body, but this is a pretty good beer. Surprisingly so given it’s from the Marsten’s stable. Very drinkable.

StueyD (1166) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2014
A dark red-brown coloured beer with a thick off white head. A heady hop aroma, grassy and citrusy with a background maltiness. Dry mouthfeel. A tarty green hop taste, loads of citrus fruit flavours, grapefruit and lime, plus a hint of sweeter tropical fruit, this sweetness bring forth a smoother caramel, toffee malty flavour that tempers the tart hoppiness. The hoppiness comes back to the fore in the finish.

johndoughty (3994) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Bronze with a gentle hoppiness. Slightly fruity and reasonably interesting but not one to go out of your way to try. At least Marstons are trying.

berkshirejohn (4543) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Cask at the Duke’s Head, Wokingham. Reddish chesnut in colour with a loose cream head; orchard fruit aroma; soft, fruity and sour in th emouth with a malty body that’s full and satisfying; and a lingering sweet malt finish. Good, even if I didn’t pick up the Pacific hops.
