Almost my favorite beer ever, combined with maybe the most appetizing job of graphics, color and type ever.

This is easily crushable - nice balance of just enough drying hops to keep it crisp and dry on the finish. Overall a great go to beer for your fridge, especially for warm weather parties.

This is a good beer. The pour is a bit disappointing as the head is not as prominent as we might wish for a beer of this style, and the color is a bit young hay for my tastes (a bit green hued). The nose is also not the most appealing part of this beer as it leans a bit sour, but that sourness all but disappears giving way to a beautiful wheat dominant and reservedly floral palate. The mouth feel is satisfying. This beer just needs a bit of tweaking and it can be something quite special.

L: Pours a very light straw gold color with a small fizzy head and no lacing on the glass.

S: Baked bread and sweet cereal grains, with a light note of floral hops. Pretty much what you expect from a pilsner.

T: Baked bread, almost a little wheat, some sweet cereal grains, and nice floral hop at the end, a light to medium hop bitterness at the end.

F: Light, crisp, clean and easy drinking

O: A very well brewed pilsner, not world class but nice and easy drinking.

Have been on a bit of a pilsner kick lately and really excited for Marble’s version. Hoping it lives up to my high expectations.

Poured a golden, yellow, clear color with four fingers of uneven, white, rocky head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass, reminding me a bit of a snow globe. Excellent lacing. Excellent retention. (Sight - 4.50)

More maltier on the nose than I would have thought. Got urine, corn, honey, Kix cereal, pine, citrus zest, lemon sweetened iced tea, herbal grassy notes and hints of vegetables. Very interesting. (Smell - 3.50)

Taste followed the nose almost to a T. Got lemon sweetened iced tea, corn, very dry, honey, Kix cereal, grassy notes, sourdough bread, sharp pine, hints of Nugget, spicy German wheat hops and some peppery spices. (Taste - 3.75)

Light body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Clean, crisp finish. (Feel - 4.00)

Definitely a different take on a German Pilsner. Enjoyed it, especially as it went down. Something slightly off, but still dug it. (Overall - 3.75)

Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a dirty white head. Aroma is founded with the yeast, paired with some crackery maltiness, and some hoppiness offering lots of floral and some lemon peal. Flavor follows suit. A creamy, active, thin to medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is pretty much spot on what I want from a session beer. Perfect beer to enjoy in the throws of a hot, sunny New Mexican summer.

Can from Tin Bucket. Stoked to finally get to try beers from these newer, highly regarded New Mexican brewers. 03/26/2015 is stamped on the can, I'm guessing that's when it was canned.

Strangely light in carbonation, this beer is straw yellow with a thin, white head that falls off quickly. The nose is solid. Bright, snappy, lemony and mildly herbal, this is crisp and refreshing. A faint pils malt character is present. Noticeably hoppy with a pleasing lemony punch, this smells great. The palate opens with a noticeable hop snap, mild mint, plenty of lemon, some lemon oil, hop resin and a touch of dough. The lack of carbonation emphasizes a mildly soapy hop flavor. Drying, bitter and with plenty of lemon on the finish, this is crisp and refreshing. The low carbonation is a touch disappointing, but this is a solid beer.
