Marston’s Pedigree

This is my second attempt to review Marston’s Pedigree.  The first time I tried, I left it an hour or two between drinking and attempting to review the ale, and couldn’t remember anything about it!  Pedigree claims to be a classic English pale ale, created in a ‘Cathedral of Brewing’, and to be the Official Beer of England.  So it promises a lot.  It’s a light tea colour, with a faint toasty nose.  It has a fairly sweet taste that is followed up by a light bitterness.  It’s the sort of beer that I could quite happily drink on a night out with friends, but for a beer that promises so much, it really under-delivers on flavour.  It weighs in at an equally bland 4.5% ABV, and at the time it was purchased, was selling for £1 a bottle in Sainsburys.
