Pours an orangey-amber with a white head. Aroma is bready, some slight toffee, a touch floralnand a little pine. Flavor is a nice full breadiness, some toffee, alittle sweet floral and some pine. A medium bodied, creamy, somewhat active mouthfeel. Overall, a great amber ale. Right up there with Odell’s Stone Barn and Levity for my favorite of the style. One of the very few ambers I want to drink more of. Great beer.

Poured a gorgeous amber with a thin white head. Very nice and true to style. Scents of citrus, sweet malt and slight pine. Scents like a pale ale, boding well for this hop lover. Flavors of citrus pith, grapefruit, slight pine and a sweet malt backbone. Refreshing, pleasant and sessionable. Drinks a lot like a pale ale, but I enjoy that. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation, a good, true to style mouthfeel. A good amber ale, with a hoppy character that let's it drink like a pale. Exactly what I love.

Medium to big off white head rests above a clearish honey amber golden colored medium bodied beer.

Aroma is sweet caramel malt with a light citrus added to it.

The slightly burnt and sweetish caramel malt is forefront in the taste with little grain and a tad bit of a citrus hops sneaking in there.

A light dry aftertaste with a hint of sweet caramel to it.

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.
