Bottle to glass. Pours a nice amber, light reddish color, with an off white head. Wonderful hop character, piney, citrus, on top off a toasty amber malt backbone. Another solid Marble beer.

Bottle picked up in Las Cruces at Kelly Liquors. Straight from the bottle after a hot, windy, dry run. Huge aroma of sappy, resiny pine with a hint of sweet malt. Nice mildly bitter flavor that keeps it a nice amber ale and not over-the-top into IPA-land. Nice and refreshing.

Bottle from local Smithís. Wow! Not what I was expecting at all. Pronounced hop profile announced itself as soon as the cap came off. Dark copper pour, medium off-white head, and moderate carbonation. Caramel malts are pretty much buried under a very dry, IPA-ish hop profile. Itís labeled as a red ale rather than an amber, but it tastes like a red IPA to me, which ainít a bad thing as far as Iím concerned. A pleasant surprise. Iíll definitely be buying more of this.

Nothing to write home about. A bit of a sweet and bitter initial taste that complimented the local cuisine.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear reddish brown color with a very small off-white head on there. Nose is quite hoppy... there is some caramel to it, but a lot of grass and some floral notes to it. Taste is slightly bitter, and comes with a malty bite that has a residual sweetness. Really interesting...

Draft at the taproom in Santa Fe.
Deep orange-brown pour with a modest head. Nose brings some of the metallics that previous raters were glad not to detect, along with spicy pine. The flavor is a very fine balance of c-hop drive with sweetish caramel malt backing. Prickly mouthfeel from the abundant carbonation. This (hoppy American red ale) is not a style that I tend to enjoy, but I rather enjoyed this one. It has to be once of the nicest red ales Iíve had.

Pours deep red caramel with a creamy head. Big fresh hop aromas of pine, grass, peach, caramel and apricot. Big upfront apricot taste with light peach, pine and a balence of caramel. Medium sweet and bitter. Very good beer with a good hop punch.

Good malt and hops. Sweet, like hop juice. sweet, sticky finish. Good palate and tons of flavor for the style.
