Jennings (Marstons) Cocker Hoop – English Pale Ale at 4.2% ABV

Jennings (Marstons) Cocker Hoop English Pale Ale at 4.2% ABV ($4.00 at Dominion Stavanger, 500ml, best before 31-Jul-2015)

Pours clear pale amber with a one finger of white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, minimal patchy lacing. (3/5) Nose is biscuity pale malt, grassy hops, hint of fruit. (5/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Light body, medium to low carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (3/5)

Pretty similar to Marston’s EPA. Maybe a little more bitter, and I think it tastes a little better than it smells – which, to be honest, isn’t saying a heck of a lot. Nothing remarkable, easy drinking with a pleasant enough bitter finish. (10/20)

5.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
