In bottle, thanks Gregor. Pours a cloudy amber colour with a thick white head. Aroma is quite fruity with yeast, biscuity malt and alcohol. A nice barnyard mustiness with honey, caramel and a yeasty linger. Moderate carbon ation and a dry finish. Light CO2 prickle and a lovely woody character. I really enjoyed this.

Sizzler80 (434) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 5, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2011 I had this on cask at Bull and Castle in Dublin. Lovely fruity, blood orange colour with a very small head. Copper coast is full of fruit both in taste and smell. Aromas also include caramel, wet grass. Quite dry and sweet from the caramel and fruit, redcurrant, on the palate as well as a citrus bitterness. A pleasant Irish red ale.

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle [500ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o garthicus. Pours a murky copper with an average size diminishing off-white head. Mild aroma of grain, fruit and a bit of sourness -- not great. Watery flavour of caramel malt and yeast along with some fruit and a short light bitter finish. Average bodied. Most Red Ales and Irish Ales are quite dull and this is no exception.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle @ Bierhaus, Cork. Murky, a bit muddled, coppery-red. Bright fruity aroma is apples, pears, red plums. Hop flowers in the background. Quite a thick, lightly syrupy character. Lots of malt sugars. Lively carbo. Juicy, fruity, and good balance.
