Bottle. Clear appearance with a gentle presence of hops. A trace of fruitiness
mixed with a lingering bitterness makes for a pleasant beer.

Bottled, filtered, 500ml. Gold colour with white head. I am enjoying the Copper Dragon bottled beers they have been consistently good. This is a dry premium bitter with a strong hay like aroma, plenty of fresh grass in the flavour with an astringent hoppy finish. Nicely balanced with a full body. Enjoyable.

Cask (gravity) at the Burton summer CAMRA festival 2005. Anyone for the traditional chorus of "hey hey hey! It’s not an IPA!". Even so, it’s a tasty malty bitter.

Bottle, bought @ Thorups Ølkælder, Århus.
Pours hazy golden with a small, staying, creamy, white head. Sweet wet hoppy aroma, light maltiness - quite bready. Fine, creamy mouthfeel. Nice flavours, elegantly hoppy, dry, flowery feel, some bready malts and a little caramel. Actually quite a nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at The Station, Whitby. Yes, finally an IPA, they are quite scarce on this trip to England. Please, let it be hoppy! Pours a clear golden-orange with an average size lasting creamy white head. Mild yet hoppy aroma -- off to a good start. Flavour: Oh yeah, finally, I missed you dear hops! It’s mild, a touch watery and slightly sweet with caramel malt -- but still, HOPS! Such a rarity in this country it seems. Medium bodied. Truth be told this is more like average APA but it’s still a breath of fresh air in this sea of BItters.

Gravity cask at Swindon Beerex08. Lovely aromas of vanilla and cereal, Flavours of milk chocolate and cereal with some balancing bittering hops. A different beast to the bottled version by the sound of it.

Golden to light amber color; I’m a bit worried about the foam, whipped eggwhite. It has subtles aroma, of malt and sweet nuts, perfumy; even with light citrusy hops. It has a quite good flavor, of dry toffee, and a good bitterness level. Simple but pleasant.
Amber color; nice lace. Very light malty aroma. Some malt taste, very ordinary; I don’t think it’s an IPA, it’s even less hoppy than the others Copper Dragon.
