UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 December 24th, 2012 - Amber Ales don’t always excite me, but they can be good accompaniment to food or parties. And the photo I took of this beer for my notebook says this is exactly the case. Christmas decorations crowd the background, filled with bodies and plates of food. So, maybe this was the ideal environment for the Copper. By itself I worry that it’s simply too anemic. A little nuttiness and cedar comes off in the smell, lighter than a full, caramel rich red ale, but still aromatic. But the flavor is on the weaker side, mirroring Fat Tire with a nutty, slightly dank flavor, and a thinner palate. Pair this with lighter foods or even appetizers, but if it’s Christmas time, there might be better ways to celebrate with something more generous with flavor and complexity (and intensity, should that be a better present for your tastes.) December 30th, 2011 - After a long day of trekking around Boulder, soaking up beer and jotting down notes, a late dinner was very necessary. So, of course, we selected to eat some grub at Boulder Brewery, where I sat down for a mediocre burger, and another flight of brews. Beginning before the meal was a sample of Boulder Beer’s Singletrack Copper Ale, a simple, parsimonious, and somewhat boring amber ale. The smell is muted - a combination of a day’s worth of assaulting my senses, but also a low-key aroma. The palate is distinguished by a masking foaminess, and a general flavorless which does nothing for my appreciation of the beer or for the meal.

smaynard6000 (687) - Apopka, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2013
on tap at O’Niell’s. Amber in color with spare rocky white head. Sparkling body. Aroma is mostly of caramel malt. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Lightly sweet and moderately bitter, I found this to be fairly well balanced. Sharp and abrupt flavors draw attention to the characteristics of this beer. I enjoyed it.
