Marston's Strong Pale Ale

Marston, Thompson, and Evershed

England

6.2% ABV. Why is that significant? Well, that's almost 2% more than most Americans see in beer. If this was sold in a lot of US states, it would say Malt Liquor on the label. This was a smooth, full bodied beer, with a nice balance of hops. Not too bitter, otherwise it might've affected the taste in a negative way. I bought this in Mississauga Ontario, not sure if you can find it in the US, but it's worth a shot. I know Marston's is sold in Atlanta. Bring this to parties and give to Bud drinkers and watch them make faces. Trust me.
