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.

Leighton (19499) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli, before heading out to see My Morning Jacket. Pours deep gold with a weak, white head. Nose has some herbal, leafy hops and toasty malts. Medium sweet flavor, some basic malts, faint honey, some biscuits, bit of herbal and pine bitterness. Light to medium in body with average finish. Alright balance to finish, some slight stickiness to the hops, hints of earth and grass, some toast and sugar. Uninspiring but completely alright.

Theydon_Bois (17944) - 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!
