Pours a hazy amber color with a tight off-white head that leaves chunks of lacing.

Smells of toasted bread and caramel notes.

Tastes of a big malty base with smaller hop notes on the end. Malts lead off with toasted bread, caramel, and toffee. Toasted tones lend to a nuttiness. Some fruit comes through midway as well. The malt feels substantial, but is not particularly sweet. Hops add in the end with floral and earthy notes.

Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly crisp amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a malt based amber that I feel works well. Another good beer from Marble.

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.

Appearance - Dark hazy amber body. Offwhite head with decent retention and decent stick.

Smell - Spicy floral body. Cinnamon. Peppermint.

Taste - Spicy. Hop and cinnamon. Pretty dry.

Mouthfeel - Lots of crisp bite. Somewhat astringent, but works well.

Overall Drinkability - No major flaws. Very enjoyable.

A- Fizzy, off-white one-inch head on a translucent medium-red colored beer. Average head retention and little lacing.

S- Smells sort of piney...bready, pale malts.

T- Subdued fruit hops. The malts take the front seat in this one. More bread, hint of caramel/cinnamon.

M- Medium mouthfeel, well carbonated.

D/O- Easy drankin' beer here. To kill a sick pack on a cool autumn night, well no one could argue with that. Very surprised I'm only the second review on this one. This brewery is HIGHLY underrated/unnoticed by the masses....not flashy but very solid brews.

22oz Bottle brought back from New mexico by my lovely wife.
Pours a pretty medium, ale-like amber. Tawny brown. A good puff of head without a generous pour, lacing on the glass nicely.
Smells mostly of sweet, toasty malts, with a bit of floral, fruity esters in the background. Soft, placid hops.
Very smooth, easygoing flavor. Caramel malt easing into apple fruitiness and a gently hopped, slightly floral, balanced finish. There's a nice little understated artistry to this beer. The carbonation is mellow, supporting a medium body with unconcerned ease. The well-mannered carbonation and impeccable balance are my favorite aspects of this brew. Not heavy handed or angular like a lot of beers I've been drinking lately. There's nothing particularly noteworthy, but everything comes together seamlessly, with no rough edges. Just a well made session beer. I like it a lot, and would love another bottle. Reminds of some of the great British ESBs.

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.
