Dark golden colour. Aroma is lightly floral and a bit fruity. Flavour has initial malty taste. Some hop fruitiness, a bit peachy. Overall there’s a metal taste ruins the beer’s finish. Beesbeer (450) - WALES - FEB 6, 2013
Not very complicated but very serviceable. I enjoyed light floral hoppy top notes, with a little bit of a grassy ending. bdunhill (255) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 29, 2013
For a generic store brand beer this IPA has all the qualities that one should. With a smooth and fruity flavor and bitter palate. It appears light brown with a small head and has a nice smooth aroma to boot! ManVsBeer (11487) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Has a mild IPA aroma, but generally low on IPA character. Golden with no head but drinkable. Finn (8556) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Flaske kjøpt på Sainsburys, Angel. Delt med Rune på rom 224 Premier Inn Blackfriars 6 Nov 12. Gyldenbrun. Litt skum. Bra krydderaroma. Smaken litt syrlig. Gress & blomster. Litt tung fruktig ettersmak.

500ml bottle from the taste different series at Sainsburys. Shared with Finn. Clear copper coloured body. Film-type layer leaving spotty lacing behind. Malt-fruity nose. Modest taste of caramel malts and citrus fruits. Smooth bittersweet tail. Soft and clean in the mouth. Refreshing (hotel room, London, 06.11.2012). kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2012
Looks and smells like most of the ales. Taste is not as bitter I would like it to be. There is a little more hops than in a typical super market lager, but othervise this goes to that gategory. Mostly boring, which is better than bad. danlo (3415) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber colour, with foamy head which quickly dissipates and a cereal malt aroma. Immediate fizzy sharp bitterness, malty taste, folowed by a tangy dry lingering bitterness. Medium bodied, OK. tjsmith (1) - Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2012 does not count
Better than most ’Brewed-For-Supermarket’ beers this is a really decent IPA with a good aroma and taste. Theydon_Bois (21849) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle at home - 05/08/12. Pours to a clear golden colour with a thin white head and plenty of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.
The smell is disappointing - muted hops, background malts and a little caramel finished with a faint whiff of alcohol.
Flavour is again muted hops, caramel/toffee, malt - not a lot else.
Mouthfeel is ok if a tad over carbonated. Thought I’d give this one a try and see what Marstons are capable of away from their normal products. Wish I’d not bothered!
