Beer "Oyster Stout" is made in the style of the time of Charles Dickens when oysters (oyster) and Stout were traditional food of the poor. Times have changed, but the stable association, reflected in the title of beer left. Today, thanks to the "Oyster Stout" we can enjoy a traditional English stout, combined with abundant and tasty food.
The unique character of "Oyster Stout" was due to the yeast used in brewing a special strain specifically designed Marstons Brewery. These very active yeast in combination with the use of fermentation Burton Union give the beer flavor and supple dry clean aftertaste. English aromatic hops varieties Fuggles and Goldings added to the bouquet of fruit, floral and spicy nuances and, along with the roasted malt characteristic bitterness. The end result is a rich black stout with a creamy, smooth taste with a good character and strength.
"Oyster Stout" has won the gold medal and the title of "Best Stout" on "Brewing Industry International", as well as the winner in the category "Bottled beer" as voted by CAMRA.
Marston's company may be called the keeper of traditions of the British brewing. The fact that the company is located in Burton-on-Trent, where traditionally produced and made the best English ales, obliges it to stick and increase the secular heritage.
Interestingly, the company Marstons remains the last British brewer, used in the preparation of beer Victorian system, "Burton Union", consisting of a gallery of oak barrels, while other manufacturers have long used for fermentation steel tanks. Another important factor is that Marstons is not just a single brewery, but by a holding company, operates five (including myself Marstons) wonderful traditional English breweries, each of which has ancient roots and rich traditions: Park Brewery in Wolverhampton, Jennings Brewery in Cockermouth , Wychwood Brewery in Witney and Ringwood Brewery in Hampshire.
