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