Beautiful yet subtle pine hop aroma, a little woody. Taste is really well balanced. Soft tropical fruits from the hops and a lovely caramel malt finish. Some biscuit and cereal. Awesome mouthfeel. So drinkable. I’m off behind the bar for another.

EdKing (2232) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2012
Cask in Euston Tap. Colour is very pale amber with white head. Nose is very fragrant citrous and touch of floral and tropical fruit. Getting a lot of pithy citrous juice and peel. Taste is light citrous, lots of husky grain malt, body is a touch watery, but very nice. Creamy head and finish is light citrous bitter.

Bottle. Golden with a white finger of fluff. Light nose of malts and grapefruit. Develops in the mouth and is surprisingly complex. Cereal malts, nuts, citrus, grapefruits and a mild banana. Light bitter finish making this extremely drinkable.

Cask at Market Porter, 20th October 2011. Nice flavour above average bitter, would certainly try more of the Marble beers, have heard good things

stravale (2579) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 9, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2012 Cask @ The Marble Arch Inn, Manchester. 071011 Light straw, frothy white head. Aroma of light grassy hops. Taste - light malt, light grass and citrus hops. Palate - very low carb, thin texture, slightly powdery. Finish is very light grassy bitter that dissipates quickly. They were selling a lot of this while I was here (bland beer is more popular I suppose). It’s quite nice, better than average but it’s a bit bland (I did have the Dobber just before!) - not much going on here. Marble do much better beers.
Re-rate: Brandling Arms, South Gosforth - Certainly not bland much more grassy / citrusy hops on this re-try. Still not mad keen on this though but it is pretty good

markas101 (2088) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2011
50 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK via The Dram Shop. Pale golden, very nice aroma of a nutty citrus infused spice. A lot of flavour for a 4% ale, nuttiness and bright hops. Medium body, could stand up to some of the more ’imperial’ of IPAs. Long bitter finish.

In bottle. Light yellow beer with a thick white head. Passionfruit and pineapple aroma. Tastes fruity with a lingering bitterness. Very nice session beer.
