Copper coloured, small head. Sweet aroma of toffee and nuts. sweet caramelly flavour with hints of toffee. medium body. Dry finish with hints of caramel. Just plain boring.

Bottle into pint glass. Insanely drinkable. Not challenging at all. One for the masses, but solid. Copper in the glass with a yellow tan frothy head that was fairly large, retains a thin but noticable dusting. Very little aroma, but hints of citrusy hops and caramel malt. Very malty up front, smooth, but no discernable character. Hops come in citrusy to start the abortive finish, but no real bitterness to speak of. If I could brew something like this as my house brew for like $0.20 a bottle, Id be happy with myself. I expect commercial stuff to taste better than mediocre homebrew, however, knowing that these guys can make good beer (Mojo).

10.02.05 Cask at Denver ChopHouse. Clear copper color with thin sudsy head. Lovely floral aroma is subtle but inviting. Simple but enjoyable mix of caramel malts and light floral hops. The finish is mildly bitter and dry. Some lingering toffee.
They also had this on tap and it was terrible. What a difference between the two. Im going to average the points, but a cask only score would be 7-3-6-3-13.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Dark golden to near amber color with a beige head. Typical caramel aroma for an amber with undertones of citric zest. Dry toffee flavors with a sudden sharpness in bite. A bit resinous and somewhat thin in feel. Another ambe that does little for me.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Singletrack pours the color of oak that was recently varnished. An aroma of fruit, dripping with honey, along with a touch of dried caramel, toasted malt and hops, that are pretty herbaceous. The flavor profile is malt accented, thin and possesses notes of butter toffee caramel and hops, but they are flowery rather than herbaceous this time. All in all, this is just another amber ale that was designed to be very approachable and they succeeded.

First big dissapointment in my Beer of the Month club in a while. Somewhat watery body, decently hopped, but river water tasting in the finish.

Bottled Beer of The month. Tasted what it should be. Had a slight bitter hoppy taste to it. Noting really going on.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2006
Pours clear amber/orange with a medium head. Fair to heavy lacing. Aroma of earth and citrus hops, along with sweet (almost honey-like) malts. Watery texture. Clean finish. Average in every way.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2007
pours an orange amber, very light head. Not much of a nose on this one, picked up a little sweet malts and citrus but very faint. Taste is kind of bitter and flat. Not much of a semblance of flavor. I guess it had some orange notes and light floral citrus but they definitely needed to hop this one up more to give it some life. Come on Boulder, your better than this.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Pours a clear amber with a small, creamy, off-white head. The nose is pretty muted with bready, caramel malts and faint earthy hops. Light to medium-bodied and metallic in the mouthfeel, it finishes lightly bitter and dry. Slightly nutty, effervescent caramel malts with a light earthy hop back and a distinctively dry and somewhat metallic finish. Perhaps the name "Copper Ale" refers to the flavor. If the metallic flavor could be removed, it would make a great session beer. As is, its nothing to seek out.
