Guest ex­pert Dave Howe rec­om­mends another bot­tled beer to quench your thirst

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FOOD AND DRINK -

THIS week, I’ve cho­sen an ale pro­duced by the Marston’s brew­ery from Bur­ton on Trent, an area fa­mous for its wa­ter qual­ity, which is per­fect for brew­ing beer!

Marston’s most fa­mous ale is Pedi­gree but also well worth a try is their Old Em­pire IPA.

His­tor­i­cally, In­dian Pale Ales were brewed strongly hopped to sur­vive the jour­ney to the land of the Raj, giv­ing a tasty, light bit­ter, which is good served cold – just the thing to drink when there’s a heat­wave on.

This ale has a light honey colour and is quite lively, pro­duc­ing a good head when poured care­fully.

Al­co­hol by vol­ume is 5.7 per cent, so it’s on the strong side and full of flavour.

A great choice for ac­com­pa­ny­ing lunchtime light bites and evening snacks.

Price is £1.99 for a 500ml bot­tle.
