3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned at Blind Jacks, Knaresborough, N.Yorks. Re Badged Blind Jacks Bitter. Gold to amber with white head. Lovely flowery, lemon aroma leading to a mid flavour biscuity malt body and a dry, lemony, citric hop flavour. Top notch session type bitter, good and refreshing. If you are going to bring in a house beer, this is as good as any.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at The Marble Arch Inn, Manchester 20.01.11 Pours gold with a nice white head and good clarity. Probably unfair to rate this having just had a Chocolate Dubble and Utility Special however it still shone despite needing a few gulps before I started to get into it. Nice session beer, good thrusty bitterness, lovely buzzy hops, tasty and easy drinking session beer. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.7

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Southampton Arms. Golden yellow colour with no head. Very low carbonation and medium bodied. Aroma is a bit ginger biscuit/cake/cookie dough, and with a slight fruitiness, maybe cherry. Taste is quite bread malty, little bit sweet with a slight spicy tingle. Finish is subtley bitter. Quite filling in the mouth. Not what I expected at all. Very nice.

A Mes rate. Cask at the Cask íní Kitchen.
What a bloody brilliant night. The Marble chaps in town, a bar full of Marble pumps, pretty much all me mates out and a new Marble beer for me. Result all round. I canít really wax lyrical here as I was having so much fun, all my notes say are "well made, drinkable as hell, balanced, sessionable, well nice". Actually, I think that does the job pretty well so letís go with that. Nice one folks.

Cask @ The Marble Arch Inn, Manchester, UK 26 Jan 2005
According to Camra National Winter Ale Festival programme this is to replace Cloudy Marble and N4. Itís very hoppy. Pleasant initially, but a bit overwhelming in the end. Still it had a slight sweetness. Amazing for a beer at this strength. Maybe served a bit young.

Cask in Marble, Manchester at the beerís launch party. Rich, strong hop and bitter aroma and taste with a good balancing maltiness and a very drying finish. Apparently they may tweak the recipe a bit, but itís OK by me...

Cask at the Knott, Manchester.
Colden beer, pleasantly drinkable.
Well balanced between the malt and the bitterness, but nothing to make it really stand out.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Knott Bar, Manchester. Clear gold colour with a thick creamy white head and plenty of lace. Fairly restrained nose with some citrus and grassy hop lurking in the shadows. In good nick and pretty clean, but the palate lacked any real depth to it. Dryish rather underwhelming bitter finish. Disappointingly average and probably my least favourite offering thus far from an otherwise excellent stable
