Real Ale Beer Review: King of Swing from Marston's

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's real ale beer review is for King of Swing from Marston's.

Share It!

I get it people. It hasn't been the craftiest of craft beer weeks. Life is like a box of chocolates. You sometimes end up with the chewy caramel and coffee creams after some bastard has eaten all of the Madagascar chocolate ganache truffles.

And I could hardly NOT have a King of Swing with the Ashes being on and all. This beer was a dark gold with very light flavours. It was malty but not too sweet and had a fresh finish. Not a lot of flavour but there was a bit of orange peel and melon there and a certain savoury herbalness.

On the whole Marston's make some decent beer but it is more for bottles than draft. One of theirs I like to have in stock is their EPA. It is a pleasant bitter hoppy golden ale that is low ABV.

I have no idea who Jimmy Anderson is or if that is even him on the clip there. Presumably he plays cricket for England.

The Beer in Review is a blog about beer. Mostly British beer because that is where I live. I post a review every week day. Make sure you check in on Friday which is when I reveal BEER. OF THE. WEEK! You can contact me with comments and questions on twitter or facebook.
