Poured a dark amber color, slight haze. Nice 2 finger, khaki colored hed. Good lacing. Nice egg-white like head.

Aroma was very citrusy and grapefruity. Lots of hops. Caramely and biscuity with some mellow sweetness.

Flavor is biscuity and caramely upfront. Good amount of maltiness helps balance the hop bitterness. Floral and citrusy hops with a grapefruit bitterness that slightly lingers. A bit grainy as well.

Body is medium with a medium carbonation level. Crisp finish.

Overall this is a great west-coast styled Red. Big hops, good maltyness with a light sweetness. Very enjoyable and one of the better Red's i've had.

A big rich off white head slowly dies into a nice lacing above a clear reddish golden colored ale.

Slightly roasted grain malt sweetness blended with a citrus hops aroma that is done quite nicely.

Slightly roasted caramel grain malts blend really well with a citrus to pine hops bite give this red a very worthy taste.

A dry aftertaste that harbors the hops citrus and dryness on this medium bodied beer.

A pretty darn good red, I hope these guys get more exposure.

12oz bottled May 15, 2012. Served at around 40-45F.

Pours cloudy red with a one finger beige head that leaves a few small spots of lacing and holds a nice cap.

Aroma features nice caramel and bready malt, some fruity notes, good bit of citrus and floral hops. Good to very good strength.

Flavor is citrus hops, caramel malt, fruit, cherries, apples, dark bread, moderate sweetness, mild bitterness, minimal alcohol.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slick, good carbonation.

Very nice hoppy Amber Ale. Really nice. Very impressed by both this and the IPA from Marble Brewery.

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.

Pours a a dark amber with a thumbs width beige head and nice lacing. A nice dose of some hops to go along with the expected sweetness; a nice dose of some sugar and caramel next to some grass. That's what you get with the flavor too. Lots of caramel and bitter piney hops. One dimensional in its attack. Medium bodied, maybe a little syrupy type mouthfeel. Overall, want this beer to be more than it is, but really just one dimensional with its bitter piney hops attacking you om top of the caramelt foundation.

An amber-red wonder. Wonderful sweet-hoppy aroma, the taste following suit. If the ABV were a tad higher, this would be Grade A IIPA, but when you'd rather have a slightly lower alcohol content yet have all the other benefits of an APA hop bomb, I would highly recommend this brew. Well-balanced, very easy drinking, and very, very tasty...

12 oz bottle served cold into a goblet.

Marble Red is a deep redish brown with good clarity. The head is thick and settles slowly leaving spoty lace behind.

Aroma is malty sweet with a heavy dose of British and Northwestern hops.

Flavor is big for a red ale but still nicely balanced. Bold malt base with caramel and toast. Hops are earthy, spicy, and a little grassy.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated.

Overall a really well done hoppy red.
