Marston’s Pedigree: One Refreshing Ale by Brandon C.Hovey

Beer: Marston’s Pedigree

Beer Style: English Pale Ale

Abv: 4.5%

Served: 500 ml bottle poured into pint glass.


Background: Again, I’m continuing my quest for great British beer and Marston’s is next in the lineup. Marson’s Pedigree styles itself as an English Pale Ale, and so far it is one of the very best examples of one that I’ve ever tried. I poured the 500 ml bottle into a shaker pint glass. There was a two and a half finger foam head, and moderate to mild carbonation. The beer is burnt orange in color.

Taste and Aroma: The aroma is a sweet one. A malt smell is prominent in this beer making it a good choice in winter time. It has a warming aroma that greets the drinker on a cold day. The taste is dry, crisp and refreshing: the fuggle hops help this happen. A hint of apple is present at the very finish.

Final Analysis: Marston’s Pedigree is superb. It would go well at your next fry up or grill out.
