A very easy drinking lightly coloured pale ale, crafted to commemorate the burning of a used Burton Union barrel. It delivers a sharp thirst quenching bitterness, perfectly complemented with a slightly lemony citrus aroma. The perfect beer to accompany an English Summer. Definitely not for Australians!

Bottled and despite its title brewed to celebrate the burning of a used Burton Uniion barrel rather than cricket. Pleasant slightly fruity flavour that left a pleasant aftertaste. Maintains the usual high Marstons standard for bottled beers.

4.1% golden colour with thin head, malt and hop aroma, malty taste with a hint of citrus, not bad but definitely not for Australians.

Bottle, Co-op Headington, Oxford, 09-11-06. Golden in colour with a white head. Aroma was rather hoppy touch of sweetness, good tasty citric and hoppy beer that was really pleasant.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 3, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2013 Strong malt aroma with honey. Just like the aroma the flavour is strong in malt also. Bitter malt finish with a hints of orange zest.

Quite a nice light and refreshing beer, well balanced and nicely hopped. A good beer to drink on a session
