COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A pale golden beer with a fruity orange aroma and a dry peppery finish.
Maid Marian is brewed with Maris Otter Pale malt, Cluster hops, and Nottingham Ale yeast. Its refreshing flavour is from a combination of fresh oranges, coriander and exotic Grains of Paradise. These were a common ingredient in 18th century beers and used as a substitute for pepper which at the time was heavily taxed.

Bottle from brewery. Appearance - golden with a quickly disappearing head. Nose - honeyed cereal with perhaps some lemon. Taste - more sugar puffs and lemon on the end. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a relatively dry finish. Overall - a generally solid if unexciting beer.
