Can't tell how fresh the bottle was but there was not the slightest amount of hoppiness or bitterness in this beer. The aroma is of honey and the taste is much like water with honey and some bubbles. Not appetizing at all.

Marston's Pedigree Amber Ale | Bottle | 4.5%

Bottle conditioned. Brewers says to look for biscuity hops, spice & fruit.

L3.
Amber as described. Not much else to say.
S3.75
Very subtle. Sweet & malty, like a friendly bourbon.
T2.5
No huge flavours. Hops come through slightly. Rather bland.
F2.5
Watery somehow.
O3
Pretty drinkable but lacking character. Not getting the promised spice or fruit, but the hops do shine through.

T: malt up front with nice bitter hops, slightly bready, traditional British hop flavor, slight oak

M: medium with lower carbonation

O: good quality pale ale

This has a great color, but very little aroma to speak of. It has a good mouthfeel, but it is a bit heavy on the carbonation. The taste is nice enough, but nothing spectacular and a very faintly skunky undertone (probably just this particular bottle). Overall, I found this a decent ale--smooth and enjoyable, but nothing particularly exciting.

Bottle review; First impression is that this is bland. Aroma is faint, but appearance is pretty good, amber color with decent foamy head. Taste is hops and light malt. Finish is dry and abrupt.
Cask: review Lovely, thick creamy pour, head took some time to settle, and still a thick coating of cream remained. Gentle malt aroma and taste, velvety smooth body. Excellent pub quaff

Poured into pint.
Clear copper beer with 2-finger off-white head, good retention.
Smell - rubber, metallic, biscuity, fruity.
Taste - toasted malts, biscuity, fruity esters, herbal hops.
Smooth, soft carbonation, light body.
Overall - good, but with poor aroma.
