What’s the best way of dealing with a crisis?

That’s right:

Marston's Ashes Ale in a Lord's 2005 glass

Marston’s have brought out another cricket themed beer. This one’s called Ashes Ale and it’s light and hoppy and the kind of beer you could have a few of – which is just as well considering how today’s play went.

We’d give it 7/10, but if the people from Marston’s want to get in touch and send a few bottles (, it’s probably the kind of beer that goes to 8/10 when you’ve developed more of a taste for it.

It also features something else that we always look for in a beer and that’s a picture of a cyclops on the back of the bottle:

All products should feature a cyclops - ALL PRODUCTS!

You can get it at Lidl. They’ve also got Dragonfruit on sale for about 50p at the minute, but be warned: in terms of taste, dragonfruit doesn’t remotely live up to its name or appearance.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. You may want to slope off from Lidl into a nearby Aldi and buy a box of Tapas in a Minute for 99p to go with the Dragonfruit

  2. More that it doesn’t taste exciting.

    We’re pretty sure dragons would taste exciting.

  3. Am I the only one amongst us who has bought a commemorative jar of Marmite which is a facsimile of a cricket ball and contains a percentage of its yeast extract from marston’s Pedigree?

    I know I’m a fool but I just couldn’t resist it!
