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.

nihtila (4043) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 20, 2015
14.5.2015. Drank from bottle. Malts, light caramel, grain, fruits. A bit light, metallic and dull. Not really an IPA.

mR_fr0g (14241) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle at home shared with Sarah. Orange / light amber coloured pour with a big fading loose off white head. Aroma is nutty malts, mineral, caramel, berry / grassy hop. Flavour is composed of light caramel, little diacetyl, rough grassy hop matter, sweet grains. A bit stale and some brown sugars. Palate is sweet, moderate carbonation. Dull beer.

The usual Marston's sulphur nose (the label says: "floral and citrus aromas" - eh, no....) That pong aside, it's clean and sharp and a very enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sarauckelman (550) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Clear light amber, not much head. Hops with a bit of flowers and honey on the aroma. Light, sweet taste with hops but not much bitterness. Would be nice on a hot day.

uckelman (813) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Pours amber, a bit hazy. Dappled off white head. Hints of hops, but not really a lot of aroma. Tastes more like a regular ale than an IPA. Not all that bitter.
