UK brewer Marston's has launched a "crafted" lager in 33cl cans, as it looks to offer a "bolder" style to UK consumers. 

The company describes the brand as "food friendly". It contains five different hops. 

"We wanted King Star to be bigger and bolder than most of the current British craft lagers," said Wychwood senior brand manager Jo Wyke. "Our brief was not just to refresh and to be a light-bodied summer time drink; we wanted King Star to be a real palate pleaser."

The product has launched in the UK and a spokesperson for the company told just-drinks "it is available" to export. 

In June last year, Innis & Gunn's US business announced plans to import Marston's Wychwood Brewery brands, including Hobgoblin.
