8th September 2010. Cask Pub & Kitchen. ’Meet The Brewer’
Thanks to Ethereal for the half pint! Cheers Casper! Clear pale gold beer with a residual suddy head. Light semi dry palate. Sweetish banana cream base for a little citric hop. Nice! Finishes dry.

Cask (@ King’s Arms, Hawkshead): Yellow coloured with a smaller white head; distinctive hoppy-lemony nose; light bodied, moderate to robust bitter-sweet flavour; dry lingering aromatic hoppy finish. Superb......

(Old BA rate - cask) Yellowy gold, and hinging on amber as well. Thin, white head poured at the perfect height. Fantastic lacing all throughout the sample. roma is light, citrusy and bitter hop aroma that was followed by biscuity maltiness. Brilliant hop bitterness up front with a dry floral finish. A lot creamier than I expected for the style. Very full mouthfeel with a decent coating of the tongue. This would do me great all night long. Lighter body might have been nice, but I can’t complain with all of the great flavors going on. What a treat, and at such a reasonable abv. Overall, this is a great interpretation and update of a very traditional style. Well-done, and I can see why it was the most popular beer at the pub.

Cask at the Marble Arch. Light amber color, but amazingly full flavored. Fruity, rounded, with a little citrus. Great hops, but with excellent balance and a slight bubblegum hint as well. A truly great bitter--surely one of the most impressive I can remember, and in tip-top shape at the brewpub.

As cask beers go, this is one of the best pints I’ve had in a long time. Marble are a great brewery and they deserve being shouted about. As a ’best bitter’ this kicks ass with fruity hops and awesome drinkability. More British cask beer should taste like this.

Cask @ Woking Beer Festival 2009. Pours a yellowy gold colour with a thin, white head. Light, citrusy and bitter hop aroma that was followed by biscuity maltiness. The flavour is hop bitterness up front with a dry floral finish. Very enjoyable beer.

Rune (8348) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2009
Gravicask from Bar Unusuale at GBBF 09. Clear golden body topped by a bubbly ring. Floral hoppy to the nose. Fresh fruity taste progressing to a pleasant bittersweet finish. Typical for the style and just alright to drink (London,05.08.2009).
