In the 19th century Burton-Upon-Trent became famous for brewing the best beer for export to thirsty ex-pats and colonial soldiers in India.

With it's pale appearance, strong hoppy taste and higher alcoholic strength Marston's Old Empire comprises all the genuine characteristics of a true India Pale Ale, which were necessary to last the 3 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 Fuggles hops are added to this brew, which is then late hopped with the American Cascade variety for extra hop strength.

Old Empire is one of my favourite beers. Beautifully hoppy and full of character, it won't disappoint. A nice hefty alcohol content is balanced well with some floral, earthy tones. A great beer!

Marston's Old Empire [baron rating 5/5] - this 5.7% delicious crisp ale tastes more like a smooth 4% one...

What's the point of a strong ale which tastes like a weak one? Doesn't really taste of anything. Your better off drinking a pint and a half of a good beer rather than this rubbish. I can only imagine it's designed for people who want to get drunk but don't like proper beer.
