Brewed for collaboration fest 2013 between Tempest and Brewdog Edinburgh
Management team Fisher and Lynn were sitting merrily on a train, of course having some epic train beers. The creative juices were flowing, a kid brushed past them down the aisle and dropped his Paddington Bear toy, and thus an idea was born! Collaborating with Graeme from Tempest, the Edinburgh team created this marmalade on toast pale ale brewed with orange zest, ginger and bucketloads of toasted malts. - See more at: http://www.brewdog.com/blog-article/brewdog-collab-fest-the-bars-brewdays#sthash.7uGX9sJy.dpuf

Keg @ BrewDog Sheffield [190314] [From memory as notes lost]
Dark amber, hazy, white head. Aroma of sweet orangey caramel, zest. Taste I recall was more the bitter zest in marmalade, not so fruity, caramel malts, caramelised orange, think there was a herbal hop note in there? Didnt get the ginger, remember getting a hint of alcohol. Decent enough but wasnt wow

Had this at Brewdog Edinburgh on the launch night but dont remember it tasting this Marmaladingly zingy. Having it on tap at The Hanging Bat. It looks a nice rich amber marmalade colour. Citrus hoppy aroma with a hint of ginger. However the taste is indeed marmalade all the way. Im actually not finding the ginger overbearing, despite the spicy overtones. Quite bitter, though very refreshing. Im certainly enjoying this this time around.

Tap in Brewdog Edinburgh. Deep hazy orange with white head. Orange marmalade, toasted malts, bread. As expected. Very sweet, bit much. Medium-heavy body, bitter in the finish.

Keg, Brewdog Shoreditch, Fin & Loz (1st of 2 visits today) Saturday 18th January 2014 This is a shocker, almost medicinal in flavour tasting like a herbal lozenge crushed up and dropped into Alka Seltzer with a dash of cheap orange squash thrown in or even that powdered orange drink, not good! This tastes nothing like marmalade on toast or even beer. The aroma was ok at first then a hint of bile kicks in which hardly helps this already failing beer. The colour and appearance are one of the few highlights. A3 A4 T3 P3 Ov6 1.9

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
Keg at Brewdog Shoreditch. Pours a distinctly orange colour, with a thin dissipating white head. Aroma is exactly as it should be: orange, bread and toasted malts. Taste is quite sweet, very sweet really, again bread and orange to the fore. A very very light sour hint there too. Finish is quite fizzy, light and sweet. This sort of beer is usually really not my thing, but I actually quite enjoyed this one.

MrTipple (4340) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Aroma: pretty much what it says on the bottle - marmalade on toast, some toasted malts. Appearance: dark red amber, clear, medium head. Taste: sweet, very light bitterness. Palate: bitterness continues, fruity. Overall: amazing Fruit beer, enjoyed this very much despite this not being a favourite style. Bottle from Oddbins Pimlico, London.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2014 Great deep amber colour with a nice head and wicked lacing. The aroma is sweet and a bit sicky, which I didnt enjoy, but everything else is joyful. Toasted malt and orange rind is here. The toasted malt is lovely and bitter, giving a lovely black peppery hit.. Oily texture and the body is medium-light, which is great as this could be a bit cloying - instead this is very drinkable and lovely variation on a pale.
