3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Good head retention. Well I think they got what they were hoping for-a pretty nicely balanced beer with some caramelly sweet nice and bit of resiny citrusy hops to make things interesting. Malt character is ever so slightly dirt-like, which is my only real complaint. Perhaps also a bit sweet.
amber color; floral hop aroma; a hoppy amber ale; piney, citrusy, floral hops on a medium bodied bready malt base; dry, bitter finish deyholla (12583) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Sampled from the tap at the Santa Fé location. Pours a clear golden amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of bread notes with some earthy grains and a bit of earthiness underlying. Flavor has lots of bread and grains up front supported by a earthiness and a bit of biscuit. maltman53 (472) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - MAY 31, 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. Westchesterco (2274) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2013

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. Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottled. Poured medium amber with a tall, well-retained, creamy off-white head. The aroma picked up toasted nutty notes and caramel with light detergenty accents. The flavor found more interesting caramel and bready malts at the core, lightly toasty.. touches of fruit and herbal bitterness around.. finished with solid balance. Light-medium bodied with higher carbonation on the palate.. fairly good feel and flow.. this wasn’t great, but it grew on me. rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - DEC 4, 2011
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. Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2011
Draft @ brewery tap, Santa Fe. It’s amber, with an unspectacular head. Crystal malt. Chewy, nutty. Smells like toasted brown bread. Sweet toffee and caramel flavors. Very sweet, I think too sweet. Could use more aggressive hopping to suit my palate, but the toasty finish is fine.
