The Welsh seaside: Fish and Chips (which I hadn’t had for a very long time), sea air, world cup football on the telly, excellent side/back lighting from a setting sun, plus I can’t even remember the last time I had anything from Burton on Trent. Coincidentally, there was a TV program all about them (well railway journey of Britain) and they even mentioned IPA.
|The Beer||Marston’s – Old Empire India Pale Ale, 5.7%|
Malty, very little in the way of hops or grass but it is there, and maybe a little sweetness.
Golden/amber in colour, frothy white head that quickly went.
Pleasantly bitter that did last quite a while, some malted elements; quite lively, alcohol content does come out a bit more than I expected; not too complicated, a honest beer
I would quite happily have a six pack of these somewhere in the house, this is a pleasant enough beer that refreshes the mouth and went down very well after a rather large fish and chips. If nothing else I was quite pleased with the photo, the colour and bottle work very well with the sea backdrop.
