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

Bitter de 4,5 %, qui a été relooké depuis la photo de ratebeer. On l’appelait alors parfois la "P"... On y voit maintenant le portrait de George Peard, qui fut head brewer à une certaine époque. Eau de Burton, orge Maris Otter, houblons fuggles et goldings. Mon exemplaire était à 4 mois avant sa date. Couleur ambre moyen, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, en fontaine centrale, à montée lente. Mousse beige clair, crémeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de très beau malt, caramel, pointe de candi. 1ère bouche souple, à l’entame malt/houblon très plaisante, malt grillé. Arrière-bouche sur une amertume précise, avec du zeste. 2ème à la belle texture, mais les saveurs sont moins précises. Arrière-bouche un peu aqueuse, pointe d’épice. 3ème aux saveurs agréables, mais sans ampleur. Arrière-bouche vague, comme passée en arrière-plan !! Longueur qui fond un peu les saveurs, et on trouve un certain intérêt à la dégustation. Jambes fines, serrées, longues. Levure basique. Alcool inefficace, il semble indifférent aux saveurs. Finale banale. CONCLUSION : bière dont on retient le beau visuel et la belle texture .. Le reste ne fait pas partie du pedigree !!! Par ailleurs, elle permet de prouver magistralement que les meilleurs ingrédients ne font pas d’office une grande bière … bravo pour la démonstration !! (5/4/4/4/8)

S obzirom na prilično visoku cijenu od 13 kn u lidla i nisam zadovoljan. Najbolja strana pive je gorkasto orašasta aroma.

As Marstons Pedigree Amber Ale. Pours clear amber, topped with thin and nonlasting off white head. Sweet malty nose with biscuits. Taste just slight biscuity malty sweet. Peppery bitterness, sparkly and light body.
