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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.
