CraftBeerNick (2476) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2011
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 (3055) - 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

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.

BeerViking (4712) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2011
Golden with fine white head, malt, lemon and hops nose, crisp and bitter tangy palate with faint floral notes, very tasty.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2011
In bottle. Light yellow beer with a thick white head. Passionfruit and pineapple aroma. Tastes fruity with a lingering bitterness. Very nice session beer.

3.1
Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Cask at the Marble Meet the Brewer event at the CASK, Pimlico, 8th Sept 2010. Clear gold. Quite light palate. Bland but drinkable session bitter. Nothing wrong with it but there are many much better beers available from Marble.

3.2
rlgk (18847) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2011
Cask at Euston Tap. Pale golden beer, small creamy offwhite head. Fruity citrus flavor, hoppy, grassy with some perfume. Malty citrus flavor with bready notes. Long perfume and pepper finish.

3.5
Brandman (2947) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2011
Cask. Golden yellow doby, white head. Aroma has loads of english hops, fruitiness and yoghurt, peach and mango, bisquit malt. Flavour is big with really nice hops, some lactic sourness and bitterness. Toasty malty backbone. Very nice smoothness.

3.4
MiP (15650) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2011
Cask, 4.2% at the brewpub. Fruity berry aroma. Clear yellow colour. Stable creamy chalk white head. The flavour starts off teaish, turning more fruity later. Medium bitterness, very clean. Good, but perhaps too clean.

mjs (7169) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2011
(Cask at Gallows Real Ale Festival 2011) The beer poured pale golden and bit muddy. No head. Aroma contained fruitiness, hops and toffee. Palate was medium bodied and dry. Flavours were malts, hops, fruitiness, mustiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter. A bit too musty brew for my taste. Aroma was good.
