Daniehac (8) - - NOV 11, 2012
Bland and weak. Very light floral notes and a noticeable absence of hops. Lacking in the flavour department. Aftertaste is slightly mineral like and reminiscent of citrus peel. More like a below average lager than an ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

teorn88 (7198) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2016
Cask at Sports Bar & Grill, Crossrail Place. It pours a clean pale amber color with small off white head. Aroma is grassy leafy with light caramel and lemon peel notes. Taste is also crispy grassy with more notes of crackers, lemon peel and straw. Light bodied with ok carbonation. Overall, nice one

Slightly better then the pint of Marstonís Smooth I had in the same local pub with a touch more taste, but like many Marstons ales I find a lot of them bland & forgettable. Pedigree is an ok session ale & easy enough to drink.

The_Osprey (7126) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2016
Revisiting this one on cask at The Railway Tavern, Richmond. As íMarstons Pedigreeí. Dark orange brown, clear, still, diminishing head. Aroma is caramel wafer, demerara. Body is very smooth with low carbonation. Not much life in it. Taste is bready and thin, more demerara, a bit of a cheesy dimension, a little astringent. Below average for style.

Beerowl80 (312) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Cask. Pours darkish amber. Not loads of aroma, just a bit of malt. Fairly bland taste. Perhaps it was better in days gone by or perhaps thereís just better options nowadays.

jmgreenuk (8398) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 10, 2015
Cask at the Fieldhouse Solihull. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a creamy frothy white head. The aroma is light hop, light malt. The flavour is moderate sweet, light bitter with a light watery, nutty, light hop bitter palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Whatever happened to the Pedigree of old.

Last units in Hipercor. In Duvel glass. Playing Memoria. Nice beer. Very balanced but nothing amazing. Low alcohol makes it a good beer to drink in big quantities

Not a patch on what it was in the 70s. Too sweet, bland, like drinking highly sugared water

MrBlueSky93 (524) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2015
Cask at The Kingís Arms, Lichfield. Pours light amber, single finger white creamy head. Aroma of lightly toasted malts, caramel, toffee...Taste of initial woodiness, then some lightly toasted malts, fruity fuggles hops...really nice and easy drinking.
