Product Description

Crafted to produced an authentic re-creation of an IPA. With its pale appearance, strong hoppy taste and higher alcoholic strength it comprises all the genuine characteristics of a true India Pale Ale, which were necessary to survive the three month long journey from Burton to Bombay.

Old Empire is brewed using optic malt, a subtle and paler grain that will allow other flavours to come through on the palate. Goldings and Fuggle Hops are added to this brew, which is then late hopped with the American Cascade variety for extra hop strength.
THE ORIGINAL EXPORT. A true IPA with a strong hop aroma and flavour, a rich malty, bitter taste and pale in colour. MARSTON'S OLD EMPIRE IS A TRUE INDIA PALE ALE - IT HAS A STRONG HOP AROMA AND FLAVOUR, A RICH MALTY, BITTER TASTE AND IS PALE IN COLOUR. DURING THE 19TH CENTURY, BURTON BECAME FAMOUS FOR BREWING THE BEST BEER FOR EXPORT TO INDIA. SPARKLING SPRING WATER, A ROBUST STRAIN OF YEAST, HIGH LEVELS OF HOPS AND MATURATION IN OAK CASKS ALL ENSURED THAT THE BEER SURVIVED THE THREE-MONTH SEA JOURNEY TO INDIA. THE RESULT WAS A BEER WITH A TANGY, CLEAN BITTERNESS AND WONDERFULLY REFRESHING CHARACTER. www.marstonsdontcompromise.com We use lightweight bottles because they are better for the environment.

Was good, not now.

In the clear glass botles, this was excellent. Best IPA, up with the best ales, was a favourite. Now Marstons produce it and Ocado sell it in amber bottles, it has changed for the worse. Lost its bouquet and changed the flavour. Shame, but I won't be buying again.

Cook's Note If the mixture begins to dry out a little, add some water – but don’t add too much because it will dilute the taste. Variation Use any combination of your favourite cooked beans or pulses.
