Looking over Jordan is all very well, but at Marston’s we’ll be spending most of the coming months watching rugby. Which is why, with out usual uncompromising adherence to quality and tradition, we have brewed a limited batch of Sweet Chariot. It’s a beautifully full and fruity flavoured beer, with spicy aroma and the sweet taste of success that every Englishman savours. So load up your chariot while you can, swing low and there’ll be a band of angels with you in no time. (Exclusive to Sainsburys)

500ml bottle from a local store. Clear golden-brown body, filmy layer, minimal lacing. Smell of lightly spiced fruits. Moderate flavour character of caramel malts, spices and grass. Distant bittersweet ending. Smooth on the swallow. Easy going (Shared with Finn at our hotel room, Derby 21.02.2016).

Bail (12) - Staffordshire, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2015
Bought from B&M Bargains. Decent head, medium colour, okay flavour. No real outstanding flavours, but nothing offensive. A very average ale, easy to drink, but just a bit the same as lots of other beers, I would buy again, but there are much better to choose from.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2015
From Arden Wines. Deep bronze capped with undulating white. Nose of gentle spice, possibly turmeric, against a washy Werther’s-like boiled sweet background. Dull, dull, watery cocktail cherry-hinting washed out distantly nutty malt flavour. So predictable, so bland. Egg-chasers everywhere will love it.

beeebon (399) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Pours copper with small off white head. Smell is caramel malt and grassy vegetable like hops. Taste is what you expect of standard bitter, medium sweet and bitter. Drinkable but nothing special.

Classic English bitter bits of hop and caramel come through looks decent enough in glass drinkable but bland.
