APPEARANCE: Shockingly, the red ale is quite red. With a relatively easy pour the head was enormous (about two full inches) and bubbly. It slowly receded, leaving a ring of lace around the top of the glass but not much below.
SMELL: Yum. That is a nice, earthy, spicy hoppy aroma. It could be a little more intense, but the smell is delicious. It pretty much smells like fresh hops.
TASTE: OK, this reminds me of the old Daisy Cutter recipe. It is very grassy, the only difference is that unlike the thinner body and crisper Daisy Cutter, the Marble Red Ale has a solid backbone of caramel malt. A wonderful citrus takes over at the end, closing it out and leaving the palate set for the next sip.
MOUTHFEEL: Medium body with a very nice sparkle. The Red Ale is very appropriately carbonated.
OVERALL: These guys are good. I've only tried three of their beers, but they have all been excellent. The Simcoe hops in this one come through the strongest and make this one of the more memorable Red Ales I've had.

New Mexico, to Tempe, to Orange County. I didn't realize that I had bought two bottles (one from two different stores) when I brought my $120 beer haul to California. Here's 12 ounces, and on to the beer:
Red...dark red colored. So dark that it looks crimson. A low head is formed on the head with just a few dots of lace sticking to the glass. The aroma at first has a touch of dry cardboard. Much of that clears up and underneath comes a pleasing hop aroma, pine, esters, passionfruit, and toasted sugar in small doses. Complex indeed. More hop forward than malt is the aroma, so there is some irony to taste a beer that's more malty than hoppy. Malty, fruity, toffee. Soft hop leaves and tea help diversify this red ale. Somewhat bitter like many IPA's, but sweeter. A bittersweet flavor lingers in its aftertaste of this medium bodied, low carbonated beer.
Yes, I like this one. Now I'm glad that I "accidently" bought a second bottle :-)
