So now to the second of my three 4% ABV single hop blonde beers brewed by Marstons to the same recipe, with the exception of the hops.
This time the hop is Sovereign, an English variety that produces a beer that has a slightly lighter amber colour than the Marynka, and with a head that lasts somewhat longer. The aroma is somewhat more subtle than the Marynka too, floral, and only slightly herby. The taste is hugely different, though; biscuity, buttery and much less dry. This is a very enjoyable ale, appealing to my English palette very well.
