AshtonMcCobb (2542) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 15, 2012
On tap @ Marble Arch. Pours golden with a slight haze and a nice frothy head. The nose is grapefruit with just a hint of malt. The taste is much the same - definitely more hops than malt with the grapefruits almost astringent. The palate is light to medium bodied with a palate-ripping hoppy finish. Overall, a well made ale but one for the extremely bitter people out there.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. Pleasant, crispy malts on the nose, slight straw hops. Light sweet flavor, light toast malts, nice bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Crisp finish, faintly bready with a nice balance. Good beer.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 21, 2011
Cask, 4.3% at the brewpub as Marble Best. Weak grapefruity aroma. Almost clear dark golden colour. Creamy white head. The flavour has a hint of grapefruit and a little sweetness. OK grapefruity aftertaste.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2011
Cask handpull, The Marble Arch, Manchester. Flawless bronze without inclusions, slim white top. Now this is more like it; aroma a soft, finely-haired melding of fruits (lychee, grapefruit, geraniums- OK not a fruit), taste punching with pith and resins (grapefruit, pine) and deep, almost earthy nut husk afters. Just some of that nagging, paracetamol astringency again that knocks it down a point. Best with bollocks. Outhops and upstages the Pictish- no mean feat.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2011
Cask handpull at EustonTap. Typical Marble good mouthfeel good hop. Just touch of butter on aroma I thought. Decent and a good golden ale / bitter

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2011
Cask@Knott Bar, Manchester. Amber looks with a lingering medium size off white head and lots of lace. Plenty of grapefruity citrus and fragrant hop in the nose. Great condition and excellent proportions to the flavour with the sweet malt, fruitiness and hops all singing in harmony. Long lingering bitter finish. Massively drinkable stuff. This comfortably kicks most bland uk bitters to the kerb.

yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2011
From cask at Euston Tap. Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and slight citrusy. Light peachy and citrusy hoppy. Bitter and bone dry. Hoppy and citrusy. Bitter and bone dry hoppy to citrusy into the finish.

BeerViking (2468) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2010
Cask at the Magpie & Crown. Pours a dark copper colour with a coarse clingy head and a slight chill haze that lifted fairly soon. Tangerine and dry grass on the nose, an initially sweetish maltiness on the tip of the tongue is followed by flavours of dark orange marmalade and a hint of cut grass, then it rapidly turns astringent and bitter on the back of the tongue, the bitterness persisting into a long-lasting aftertaste.

sm89walt (1756) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2010
Cask (gravity) - Norwich Beer Festival 2010. A good looking beer but that’s not where it’s quality presides. Fairly standard, clear amber with a bubbly though mostly lasting off-white head. Lots going on on the nose: gorgeous green hop, passion fruit & peachy, tangerine aromas. The peach & tangerine really stand out on the tongue too accompanied by a grapefruity bitterness. Lovely balancing malts, finishing slightly dry. Lingering, dry bitter finish, light to medium body & fair carbonation. A beauty of a bitter.

Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2009
Cask at Marble Arch Inn, Manchester. A pale amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt, grassy hops, elderflowers, and some grapes. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and lots of hops - lending it notes of grass and elderflowers - seemingly a combination of UK and US hops, leading to a dry bitter finish. The body is light.
