COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 500ml bottles at Sainsbury’s supermarkets as part of their Taste The Difference range.

This traditional IPA has fresh aromas of white flowers and citrus with a clean bitter hop flavour. This classic India Pale Ale is made in Burton upon Trent, the home of British brewing. The recipe uses Fuggles, Goldings and Cascade hops and yeast from the Burton Union System, only used by the Marston’s Brewery in Burton. The famous Burton water is also used in the brewing process which helps give this ale its distinct flavour.

harrisoni (14021) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2010
500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s funnily enough. Clear gold, very thin collar of off white head. Some orange fruit hop on aroma. Hops are ok if just a touch of blue cheese. The problem with this beer is in the body. The malts aren’t present enough. And I’m guessing this is filtered and pasteurised so it has that empty feel in the mouth. Hops on the finish are bitter but lacks some flavour and a touch more blue cheese. But really all you get is this touch of emptiness from the lack of malt and the filtering. Ultimately dull no matter if it does have more hops than usual for a UK beer.

Leighton (11674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli, before heading out to see My Morning Jacket. Pours deep gold with a weak, white head. Nose has some herbal, leafy hops and toasty malts. Medium sweet flavor, some basic malts, faint honey, some biscuits, bit of herbal and pine bitterness. Light to medium in body with average finish. Alright balance to finish, some slight stickiness to the hops, hints of earth and grass, some toast and sugar. Uninspiring but completely alright.
