weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2014
Bottle at home. I really liked this. I’ve had a fair few of these since. Piney hop aroma, flavour has sweet malts and light bitterness. A really good ESB, good work Marble.

Leighton (10698) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle shared while waiting in the line for GBBF 2013. Because hundreds of beers in the festival just wouldn’t cut it. Pours mostly clear, golden-brown with a creamy, off-white head. Definite brett in the nose, which I can tell you is almost certainly not intended! Though I think it does make the beer a lot more interesting in this case. Also some tangy tangerine in the snout. Light to medium sweet flavour with baby diaper brett funk, light bitter leaves, more tangy tangerine and other citrus. LIght to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Clean finish, lightly bitter, with moderate sweetness. The funk really adds a nice layer. Unintentional UK sours FTW!

Scopey (6661) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle at gbbf queue... Thanks Leighton. It pours clear amber with a large beige head. The nose is earth, wood, earth, leathery, toast, orange rind and caramel. The taste is earth, leather, wood, some funk, decent bitterness, toasted malt, caramel, light sherbet and spice with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. I can’t help but think the presumably unintentional funky aspect improves the beer....

I really like that Marble make more traditional style of bitters and this is great - a nice balance of the malt and hops.

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2013
500ml bottle (conditioned) from Bacchanalia, Mill Road, Cambridge. Drunk today. Hazy, dark amber. Pours a good, off-white head, which persists well as a good covering - fairly small bubbles. Light carb. Aroma - Nice, citrussy, spicy hops and fruity, caramel malt. Taste - Strongly caramel malt (maybe some darker, roastier malts too?) and some fruit, then turning fairly bitter, with some herbiness. Fairly bitter finish, with quite a lot of fresh, citrussy hops. Slight bitter aftertaste. Nice, rounded body, good mouthfeel, with slight oilyness. Refreshing too. Nice - Tasty hops. A bit more bitter and citrussy than i was expecting for a strong, dark bitter; i was expecting this to be a malty one, but it was a pleasant, hoppy surprise.

500ml bottle at Marble Arch Inn. 5.Jul.2012. Thanks for sharing Rune! Brown body. Off white head, that leaves a beautiful lacing, like the most elaborate Norwegian Hardanger Embroidery. Brown fruit, date, prune and toffee, with hint of almond.

500ml bottle shared with Stefan and Elisabeth. Nice golden-brown coloured body. Firm, bubbly, off-white head. Malt-fruity aroma. Taste of caramel malts and red fruits. Lingering bitter tail. Well made, the best one this evening at the brewpub in Manchester, 05.07.2012.
