Brakspear (Marstons) Brakspear Bitter – English Bitter at 3.4% ABV

Brakspear (Marstons) Brakspear Bitter English Bitter at 3.4% ABV ($4.00 at Dominion Stavanger, 500ml, best before 31-Jul-2015)

Pours clear pale amber with a one finger of light beige head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is caramel malt, earthy hops, maybe a little black tea. (5/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Medium body, low carbonation, building bitter finish. (3/5)

Yet another variation on the Marston’s theme, another one that tastes marginally better than it smells. It’s not bad at all, but I can’t say I’d be inclined to make much effort to find another one. Glad that kills the six pack. (10/20)
