Pint at Brixx Pizza in Knoxville. Clear reddish copper color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of butter, caramel and light hops. Malty and buttery flavor with some piney hops before a crisp, sweet finish. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Fresh growler. Pours a nice deep amber with offwhite head. The aroma is caramel and toast with light earthy and fruity hops and distant hints of toffee and even the slightest hint of smoke. The flavor is textbook amber ale. Caramel and toast with a slight hoppiness. Hard to get excited about an amber, but this one is quite balanced, easy to drink, and technically solid. Not too shabby. astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 2, 2011
I have all Marble City brews at the Quarry (Brewhouse). I just think that’s the best way to enjoy any beer when possible and this one is about a mile from my home. Nothing like a fresh brew.
Clear Amber. Medium, beige head. Aroma: Citris, floral. Flavor: Citris, light caramel. Bitter finish. Almost a Pale Ale in flavor. This is somewhat out of style but I like hops.

A hazed copper amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, a smooth caramel malt with light treacle notes. In mouth, a light caramel malt with light mineral notes, a bit simple but without default. On tap at Knoxville Brewer’s Jam, Oct. 22 2011. magsinva (1425) - Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Draft at Brixx Knoxville - Aroma is of flowers and oranges. Pours a dark clear orange with a white head. Taste is medium bitter, coats tongue. Pretty bitter for an amber, finishes dry.

Growler from BBM. Clear amber with a small, lasting cream above. Nose is a nice balance of toffee and toasted nut vs. citrus and resin. Taste is surprisingly more to the hop side, but not overly so. Light to medium on the carbonation, slightly watery and to the dry-hop side. Not your typical amber and a good sessioner. DiarmaidBHK (5900) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Draft at Brixx Knoxville. Pours amber with a small white head. Not a lot on the nose. A bit of citrus the tongue. The hop bitterness on the finish is all wrong for the style. Suttree (6504) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 18, 2011
It’s amber, which is appropriate for an amber ale. So far so good. Smells lightly sweet, and a little bit hoppy. Flavor is actually hoppier than I expected, which may speak more to my expectations than anything. At any rate, I liked it - it’s fresh, its hoppier than it needs to be, and a nice caramel and butterscotch malt flavor. I’d get it again. NachlamSie (3568) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Pint at BBM. Looks like an amber ale, smells like an amber ale, tastes like an amber ale. No surprises here, but it is a good example of the style. It’s not very hoppy, but there is a little bite to add balance to the malty flavors of biscuits and caramel. Palate is spot on for a session brew. I’m not exactly excited by this but it is at least an improvement over the few other amber ales to come out of Knoxville over the years. bluesandbarbq (33) - Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA - JUN 17, 2011
On tap @ Bearden Beer Market: Deep clear copper pour with a fluffy sustained white head and decent lacing. Aromas of sweet malts, light fruits and more than expected hops - a dry hopped amber! Taste is also hoppy and almost a tinge too bitter for a regular amber, but still nice, unfortunately a touch of metallic in the bitter so my high hopes where dashed just a bit for this local beer. Still decent and drinkable.
