Blah. Hockey arena brew. You gotta drink it cuz they are out of Sam Adams st the rink and you dont want to go to bud. Cardboard flavor. Too fizzy. Even with high CO2 there is little to no aroma. Flavor of wet cardboard. Some hop bitterness helps. Pretty expensive too.

Mooi amberkleurig bier met romige witte schuimkraag die snel inzakt tot fijn laagje. Aroma en smaken van citrus, grapefruit, licht harsig. Uiteraard wel een bittertje maar zeker niet uitgesproken bitter. Redelijk droge afdronk. Prima tussendoortje, drinkt lekker weg.

The looks of the beer are quite nice. The color of the beer is a nice deep amber. The beer has some cloudiness, but Ive seen cloudier beers. On top of the veer a crisp layer of rough white foam is formed. The majority of the foam collapses rather quickly, but a nice drape still remains on top of the beer. The beer sure smells nice. The first things I smell are malts and hops. The maltiness is quite high. I smell some nice clear malts and some more almost biscuits touches. Besides this are the lovely American hops. I smell aromas of pine and some grassy aromas. No real citrus aromas are present. Hops and malts are in good balance. The taste of the beer is also well balanced. The beer isnt as bitter as some APAs can be. There is a mild biter hop flavour, that pairs well with and balances the malt flavours. The hops also give a nice freshness. The palate is good. Medium body, rather thin texture and high carbonation. The finish contains some hops and a nice alcohol touch. The finish is quite long. It ends in a rather dry sensation to the tongue. Not bad.

Marstonlad (849) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a medium-sized, dense and frothy head. The aroma displays solid citrusy and floral hoppiness with pale, grainy maltiness in the background. Taste is built on a combination of pale maltiness and solid citrusy hoppiness; fresh, crisp citrus fruitiness rises to the fore. Bitterness is about medium, strong enough also for hopheads but weak enough to be drinkable for everyone. The palate is light to medium bodied, smooth, average in carbonation. Benchmark for all APAs.
