Marston's Brewery - Pedigree Classic English Pale Ale;

Marston's Brewery has been brewing at Burton Upon Trent, England, since 1834. It proclaims itself as the Official Ale of England, but I don't know if this title is self-imposed or not.

Fermented in old oak barrels, this 4.5% ABV beer pours a light orange-brown-copper in color with a half inch of off-white head. The aroma is pleasantly and lightly fruity (plum-like) and bready (lightly sweet and toasted). The taste follows the aroma with a touch of caramel and a touch of oak. The finish is bitter and dry. This is a nice English pale ale. The aftertaste is pleasingly malty, fruity and oaky.
