3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Hops & Pie. Pour is crimson with a small off-white head and good lacing. Grapefruit, citrus, light caramel, roast, resin, and wood in the aroma. Taste is citrus fruit, caramel, orange peel, light roast, soap, and floral hops with a medium bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Really more of an IPA to me, but tasty for sure.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at brewpub. Pours brown with a thin white head that leaves trace lacing. Notable floral notes on the tongue. Pretty hop forward for an amber and pretty bitter on the finish. Solid for lited style but it’s really an IPA in disguise.

12oz bottled May 15, 2012. Served at around 40-45F.
Pours cloudy red with a one finger beige head that leaves a few small spots of lacing and holds a nice cap.

Flavor is citrus hops, caramel malt, fruit, cherries, apples, dark bread, moderate sweetness, mild bitterness, minimal alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slick, good carbonation.
Very nice hoppy Amber Ale. Really nice. Very impressed by both this and the IPA from Marble Brewery.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a beautiful, clear ruby red with an awesome bubbly, white head. Pine, flowers, and spicy hop aromas all over the place. One of the hoppiest ambers around, and it is a compliment. Hop-forward, but very balanced, with a rich malty presence in the finish. Delicious. This is a mini Hog Heaven. My third Marble experience, and I’m becoming a fan.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a rusty red with nose of heavy hops, some sweet floral notes, white chocolate, and some butterscotch. Tastes a little more like a sweeter IPA than an ale. Not sure how I feel about this one...

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours medium, well retained light beige head, with extensive lacing, over a clear copper (SRM 15) body....nose is pine, grapefruit, lighter toffee/caramel, very light fruity esters.....taste is toffee/caramel, leading to a pine citrus moderately bitter finish....mouth feel medium, carbonation low. This is a very well done Red Ale. It is too hopped to fall into the Irish category, but it is nicely balanced otherwise. It is "an easy drinking pint". BJCP 7/3/14/4/7
