Marble W43


...Despite this only being the third beer from Marble that I've tried (the others being the legendary Pint and Tawny), the enigmatically-named W43 firmly catapults them into my 'Breweries Who Just Don't Seem To Brew Bad Beer' Club. Light copper in colour, with a ever-so-tan head, W43's aroma was simply divine - Strawberries, Lychees and Peaches all made for a fruit cocktail for the nose. This fruitiness comes through on the taste, but is quickly mopped up with a creamy malt backbone, and a dry, pleasantly bitter finish. Wonderful stuff; reminiscent of those first tastes of Rooster's Yankee all those years ago. Good Stuff, indeed; and kudos to North for getting Marble's beers in consistently now.

I was about to say that it would be nice to see more Marble beers in London but, actually, I'm quite happy to have a reason to keep going to Manchester.

We also have a 'Breweries Who Just Don't Seem To Brew Bad Beer' Club. Who's in yours?

Crouch Vale, Thornbridge and Dark Star for starters. They have all brewed beers we didn't like but, generaly, we're always excited to see their stuff on offer.

Yep - I'm with you on the Dark Star vote.
