Beer Review: Marmalade Skies from Mighty Oak

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's beer is Marmalade Skies from Mighty Oak. Five new beer reviews every week. Check back on Friday for BEER. OF THE. WEEK.

Tuesday already hop heads. And we have Mighty Oak again. They are one of our local landlord's favourites. And one of my favs as well. You will remember a pump clip in the same style from last week for their English wheat beer Head in the Clouds.

Marmalade Skies is a dark amber bitter that does its name justice. It is a combination of malt and burnt caramel and citrus tones that gives this beer an almost savoury flavour. As opposed to being strictly bitter. I found it very interesting indeed and unlike any of the other Mighty Oak beers I have tried over the years. 

Some beers are like munching on a salmon and cream cheese canape with lemon peel shavings, coriander sprinkles, and single drop of truffle oil. Marmalade Skies is a big beefy shepherds pie main course of a beer. Not terribly subtle but oh so satisfying and full of flavour!
