500ml bottle - Golden coloured with a hazy appearance, mad frothy white head. Some sour fruit flavour. Bitter slightly dry finish. Not bad, but nowhere near as good as any of the other Marble beers.

Half Pint at the National Winter Ales Festival in Manchester. Cloudy and pale with little head. Light fruity bitter aroma. Sharp and bitter taste, dry and fruity. Decent for a bitter.

Bottle. What a boring name for an excellent beer.Golden and hoppy with a small head and slightly dry finnish.Low carbonation and excellently bottled. I am not a great bitter fan but this is a top grade beer no matter how you look at it.

AshtonMcCobb (3087) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 15, 2012
On tap @ Marble Arch. Pours golden with a thin but attractive head and a decent level of carbonation. The nose is clean and hoppy - going down the lemon to grapefruit line. The taste has more of the same with some pale malt in the background. The palate is very balanced - medium in body and texture with a clean but not overly bitter finish. Overall, very drinkable indeed.

JorgeLee (1294) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2012
Cask in the Southampton Arms. Yes, this is a Manchester bitter, I can hear my dad wittering on about how Bods used to have a really good smack to it (but that was in the 60s/70s, a bit more than 20 years ago). And here we have a pale golden bitter, austere malty dryness, bitter hop finish, supremely moreish and drinkable. Local bias perhaps but this stuff is awesome.
