If you cross Avenue Mohammed 5 at the Solaris Café and go down Rue de Mauritainie then right onto Boulevard el Mansour Eddahbi within a minute or so you'll come to a local cheap bar with a courtyard on the right hand side. Cheap beer and tasty kebabs and chips from the kitchen in the corner of the courtyard. Great on a sunny day.

Mostly frequented by local men but not unwelcoming to tourists. A woman would probably feel a bit conspicuous but would not be in any way out of place if with male friends.

I'm not sure what you mean by being ripped off. Prices are what they are and if you know and agree the price how can you be ripped off?

list of pubs / bars in Marrakech - the more reasonable places are the ones listed as cafe/pub (20 to 35dh for a beer): tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g293734-i9196-k6…

I know the place Shimmin mentions, it is very much a locals drinking spot (16dh for a bottle of Flag) so I was suprised that it is actually listed on here as Cafe Modele Bar - it has a great beer garden but as mentioned above a female might feel out of place but they will be perfectly welcome. L'Escale on Rue Mauritanie is a similar option.

If you are really ready to rough it and want the cheapest beer in Marrakech then head to Rue Mohammed El Beqal (the part which runs south of Avenue Mohamed V) and there are several locals bars (the most well known is the Samovar), but be warned that this area is a bit seedy and not recommended for females!
