12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear amber with a nice pillowy off-white head. Head retention and lacing are excellent.
Aroma is piney hops along with a toffee/toasted maltiness. There is also a touch of spice in the aroma, maybe cinnamon, reminding me of some winter warmers.
The taste has some piny/earthy hops along with a slightly spicy maltiness that reminds me of a rye beer. There is some toasted malt too along with a respectable hop bitterness that remains somewhat restrained in line with the style.
Again I am impressed by Marble Brewery. Every beer I have tried has impressed me and I can’t say enough about this brewery. They definitely fly under the radar but I am very thankful they distribute to TN. I think I heard that their head brewer is a graduate of UT Knoxville which could be the reason their beers are available here. BeerWife (3) - USA - JAN 30, 2011 does not count
So very true to style! Perfect session beer or for a kegger.
The aroma is wonderful and cereal notes come through BeerdedDave (1850) - Beckley, USA - AUG 13, 2014

Tap @ Tap Room: Pours amber color, with a malt-forward aroma and flavor. The dry hopping shows up on the aroma and on the finish. Slight caramel malt aroma and flavor. Overall, a lighter style amber ale, nicely balanced, and makes for a good session beer. bunjes (2) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - MAY 15, 2009 does not count
A good red Ale by a nice Albuquerque Brewery. This beer has a nice nose, hoppy and bright for a red ale. The caramel malts are present and well balanced. My main complaint is the lack of smoothness.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy/cloudy orange brown with a white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, sweet malt, and bready malt. Flavor of bread and fruits, apple skins, caramel malt. Very bready with a crisp palate. Overall a great amber - less hoppy than Red but still very good and palate is heartier than most ambers.

Tap @ Marble Santa Fe. Pours a clear, amber orange appearance with an off white head. Toasty caramel, herbal, light floral aroma. Somewhat spicy, a bit piney, tasty caramel malty flavor. A bit chewy. Nice amber ale. tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Pours a clear orange-gold from draught at the brewery. slight white head and lace. Light caramel aroma. Hop bitterness tops the maltiness and yields an even dry/sweet flavor balance where the hop bitterness pushes through. Moderate carbonation accentuates the hops. A nice "amber". ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Not bad. Full flavor - not the smoothest ever, but closely balanced with clean appley hops and caramel-enough malts. Good color too, an attractive orange-red. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 12, 2011
12oz bottle. Rating #15. Medium amber pour. Light malty aroma. Light toast and pretty clean. (1848)
