Very drinkable - hoppy, balanced bitter. I like Copper Dragon ales though and this didnít disappoint.

zacgillbanks (4015) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2016
Bottle from Copper Dragon Brewery, Skipton. Bright amber coloured with a thin white head. It has a slight floral fruit, burnt toffee and currant flavour with a smooth vanilla and marzipan finish. Pretty good.

Fin (9162) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Geraint and Helen (cheers you two!) consumed at home Thursday 7th January 2015 Pours mid amber with sparkle, a tiny bit of creamy vanilla. A fairly safe bitter, easy drinking, light fruity beer with a touch of grassy hop. There is a dab of spice, itís ok, but just ok. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov11 3.0

500ml bottle from Booths, Penwortham. Pours clear amber, short-lived white head, big bubbles, high carbonation. Aromas of butterscotch and little else. Taste is sweet, malty, then chalky at the back. This finish. More butterscotch. Not great.

dogbomb (1139) - ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle. Golden orange ale with a thick white top. Nose is hoppy with lemons, grapefruits and oranges. In the mouth itís rather fizzy, but well balanced imparting a nice smooth mix of hop and malt. Nice touch of fruitiness with the orange and lemon hop and a nice sweet toffee malt balancing it together. Decent pint!

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a clear copper, small white head. Aroma of slight fruitiness, malt, not much else. Taste of bread, malt, fruits with a slight bitterness. Quite watery and the flavour was gone as quick as it was down your neck. Average.

Beer5000 (5636) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 25, 2013
500 ml bottle sampled in 2009. Golden body with a nice, dense off-white head. A bit weak aroma of refreshing fruit with biscuit malt. Flavor is biscuit malty, almost a bit dry, but sweet at the same time. Hint of fruit and quite low in bitterness. Medium to thin body and some more obvious bitterness in aftertaste. A bit one-dimensional.

50cl bottle. Thick white head. Golden blond clear pour. A nice session beer at only 4.1%.
