Cask at the Marble Meet the Brewer event at the CASK, Pimlico, 8th Sept 2010. Maybe I was all Marbled out at this point but I found this eminently forgettable and took minimal notes. One for a re-rate.

Cask handpull at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico. Toffee grassy IPA. Good bitter hop on finish. Bit too grassy hoppy for me. Good though. Touch of diacetyl?

8th September 2010. Cask Pub & Kitchen. ’Meet The Brewer’
Slightly hazy pale gold beer with a little white head. Softish slightly dry palate. Fresh bitter grapefruit with a nice semi sweet orange mid, nicely balanced between the two. Trace of pine. Some minerals before a dry finish. Bitterish aftertaste. Highly quaffable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask handpull, The Marble Arch, Manchester. Orange amber, slim white collar. Ripe, perfumed aroma falling off the branches with exotic pollen, red apple and jungle fruit. Shit, that’s a 9. Now THIS is much more like it; beautiful stewed tea, ganja and pineapple; hints of countering biscuit and nuttiness. Generous mouthfeel thick with perfumed hop and malt- big bitterness, but so well cushioned by tropical hop, mango and tomato vine. Thick like milkshake thick. Oh dear. Wow. Not sampled many UK cask beers this..dripping with hop. It’s really is like sucking a hop. Or a bar of soap. In a good way. Almost out of the very top, top drawer.

Hand pulled cask at the Bull, Horton Kirby. Gold with a lively white head despite being near the bottom of the cask! A citrus explosion of grapefruit and pineapple with a full spectrum of sweetness and bitterness intertwined by the most gorgeous resinous palate. My first ever experience of Marble beer and one that I won’t forget.
