Pours a slightly opaque dark brown with red corners. No head. Smells strongly of malt and a little chocolate syrup. Flavor is malty, toasty, and sweet. Very little carbonation. Not bad. An amber ale, really? That canít be right.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom, Charlottesville. Pours brown, little head. Aroma of copper, bread, and some roastiness. Bland caramel malts and copper flavor. Boring.

obguthr (4025) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2009
No aroma save for that of wet dog which is attributable more to the dirty glass than the beer. Cloudy rust colored, no head. Metallic and dirty tasting. The metal taste continues long after drinking. Looks and tastes rusty, hand to God. Very peculiar and not at all my cup of tea(or mug of beer). Iím very disappointed, because I actually like this brewerís other offerings.

Good overall beer. Head dissolves quickly, leaving decent lacing. Dark red to brown in color, fairly light body. Oranges and spices in the aroma. Finishes with a nice hop kick. I usually drink this with salmon or grilled tuna. It has the strength of flavor to stand up to the fish, without being so heavy that you block the taste of what you cooked.

Bottle. Rust-colored beer that didnít give me much of a head. It drinks with a strong quotient of robust caramel malt, but then it disolves into a really tart, tangy finish. (#3509, 2/17/2009)

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2011 The Red marker ale was another ale purchased form the Alwerks store in Williamsburg Virginia. The owner recommended the RED Ale. It is a good all around ale. It has more hops than other reds. The deep red color and modest head complimented the ale. It was somewhat thin and sweet. It had a smooth finish with some bitterness on the upper parts of the mouth. In November 2011 I stopped by the retail store to try some new products and picked up the American Rover. Ratebeer claims this is Red Marker. It pours a clear amber ale. The bitter hops are picked at the nose and to taste. There is lacing down the glass. I will check with the brewer to be sure I have this correct. The medium body ale had average carbonation.

Pours a reddish amber with a very thin head. Aroma of sour fruit, malt and bread. Taste was a bit sour as well but not as much as the aroma would lead one to believe but as with other AleWerks brews I picked up the aftertaste of soap again... what is up with that?

Bottle from Butters. Ruby color when the light goes through it. Sweet nose like bubblegum or blueberries. Caramel, sweet fruit like fig flavor with medium finish. I like the looks of it.

12 oz, thanks Butters. Clear chestnut with ruby highlights. Small lasting disc of creamy bubbles leaves some spotty lace. Smells of caramel, lightly tart berries and chocolate. Front taste is a nice blend of the same, except stronger and has some metallic hop notes. Finishes with a little more roasty cocoa and woody hops. Medium body is just watery and tingly enough to wipe away the malt, and keeps finishing more tart and drier. Unique brew that seems nearer to a Belgian, Brown, or some of the better Altbiers I have sampled than any Amber.

Via trade. I forget from who but will update this once I have it all straightened out. The pour was brown with ruby. An ample off-white head slowly faded and produced decent lacing. The aroma was malt, spice, citrus and pine hops. The flavor was tart citrus, earthy, piney hops, roasted malt and sweeter caramel. The mouthfeel was average with a fairly tight finish. Not bad actually, a different take on an amber ale to be sure.
