Nice deep golden colour beer with a bitter / hoppy taste. Just checked itís 8 days out of date......something to do with this 28 days thing ?

Bottle. Filtered. Much is made of the fact that this beer is unpastuerised. It is not however bottle conditioned. Nor is it, unfortunately, a decent beer. Itís a dry, lagerish beer of little character. A gimmick by a brewery which seems to struggle to brew decent beer.

Golden hue with a decent white head. Citrussy hoppy nose. Slighly nutty taste with grapefruit and melon flavours and a short bitter finish.

Bold golden appearance with a long lasting head, malty pale ale aroma and a fruity/malty full and refreshing flavour. Pretty good beer.

JonMoore (1861) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2004
Bottle from Asda. Very lively, defeating the most symphathetic pouring. Very large, long lasting white head. Sharp hop aroma. Nicely balanced hoppy flavour, with a bitter finish and a foamy mouthfeel. Pretty nice.

What a strange peace of marketing this is. There is no mention of Marstons on the label only the Red Brick beer company fromm Burton which as far as I know doesnít exist!! Its a srange attempt at marketing a sort oif bottle conditioned beer with a short shelf life. Nice head that goes quickly and a clear presence of hops.Slightly fruity but the strange marketing fascinates me-are Marstons trying to keep a low profile with this one?

rauchbier (3610) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2004
Bottle, from Asda. Amber, good but thining white head and gentle condition. Very appealing chalky hop aromas with a whiff of Burton snatch in the nose, surpisingly full bodied in the mouth with good solid hop flavour that becomes bitter but well balanced in the finish. Label claims the beer will be no more than 28 days old when you buy it, which limits its availability somewhat, but is apparently in selected Asda and Tesco stores (two of the biggest UK supermarket chains.
