Another one from Marston’s, this time a new beer designed to appeal to the “modern” drinker, or a “new generation” of beer fans. In other words, for those that think Pedigree is a drink for old men! The very fact it has its own website shows this is one they’re going to be pushing in a big way this summer.
I may find their motives dubious, but this is actually a pleasant pale. Fizzy and juicy with a green bitterness, it definitely has a refreshing, soft-fruit quality, and I can certainly imagine enjoying one of these with a barbecue in the summer sun. That said, it’s not exactly remarkable beer, tasty but not exactly exciting. With a bit more flavour and punch it could be something special.
