Up front sweet hop nose, blended with carmel-y notes. Dark ruby red, with light head. Medium earthy sweetness, rounded out by a nice piney hop bite. Lively and dry on the palate. A damb fine red ale! This rivals Odel’s Red.

Bottle. This is my second beer from Marble and it is very good overall. Aroma shows off hops but is softened by the malt balance. Deep amber color with a little red, nice head, a little cloudy. Full flavored with no problems. Very well done for this style.

hopasaurus_rex (109) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Pours a nice clear amber. Little head. Aromas of malt, hops, candied sugar and a touch of alcohol. Initial taste is malty, smooth a crisp. Has a nice hop bitterness. Almost a rye-esque flavor. Usually not a big fan of reds but this one is quite delicious. If you can find it...try it.

rangerred (918) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAR 30, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Poures a slightly hazy deep red with a thick one finger off-white head. Great head retention and lacing. Piney hops dominate the smell but that is quickly followed by some toasted malt and hints of chocolate. A really unique smell and great balance of hops and malt. The flavor, like the smell, begins with a piney hop flavor being dominant. This is quickly followed by toasted caramel malt and some dark chocolate. The hops are still there throughout and lead to a mild bitterness lasting through the finish. This beer is a wonderful balance of hops and malt. A unique flavor for a red ale, it is truly a one of a kind beer and an amazing one at that. Glad I am able to get it locally.

Pours copper red with eggshell head. Smells is oily grapefruit with an ipa familiarity. The taste is smooth and full, both a bit oily and grainy. Floral and grapefruit hops are the strong point but it doesn’t finish dry. There is a bit of medicinal taste but it is still enjoyable.

Awsome beer! Have it every time I visit family in the Las Cruces/El Paso area and bring some back with me to San Diego. Perfect balance of bitterness and malty sweetness. Hints of choclate add another layer of complexity. Aroma is definetely IPAish, floral, citrussy. Need a keg of this beer.

Red-amber in color with a soft off-white head. Excellent hoppy-piney aroma. Very IPA-esque with a nice malt body underneath.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Great British Beer Festival, day 4 on 5 August 2011. One of a surprising number of beers from New Mexico at GBBF - how’d that happen? Coppery colour more than red. Excellent hop presence in the aroma - a good mix of pine, grapefruit and herbaceous. Just a touch of toffeeish malt. Firm hoppy stuff on the palate too. This sort of thing can descend into a rather sticky, caramel mess but no such issues here - the hops and firm mouthfeel kept everything in check. Well-balanced and most enjoyable.

oobawa (626) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2011
This beer is one of those bottles that comes soooo close to being excellent, but falls just short. The malts are semisweet and solid, laying a nice, earthy foundation for the beer, but the all-star lineup of hops never makes an impression. The citric and piney notes are subtle, too much so for such a heavy, caramel-leaning malt load. Still, I find myself continuously sipping this pint, so don’t take me too seriously. A nice mid-range red ale, between the horrific sweetness of the Irish Red, and the endless bitter hoppiness of the American version.

Bottle- Nice red pour with a pillowy tan head. Smells of caramel and citrus. Tastes of Sweet malts and hops. Very balanced and tasty. Good beer.
