Bottle, thx sis. It pours more or less clear, light amber in color and topped by a dense, light beige head of moderate size. Some lacings. Sort of metallic nose with a light caramel touch, as well as malts and fruityness. Quite boring. The same goes for the flavor, it’s not bad, just boring. A pleasant bitterness makes up for some of the boredom, but it’s still a beer I certainly won’t do anything to find again. 120330

50cl bottle. Bright copper colour, off white head. Caramel, toffee, and slight red fruit on the nose. Taste is full of caramel malt and a thirst quenching fruitiness. A dry finish with a touch of hop bitterness. A decent Irish red.

at home ... copper ... soft toffee malt ... light fruit nose... juicy toffee malts ... light floral hop ... light bitterness...very subdued and simple ... easy drinking...probably a little to cool i should have let it warm up a bit.

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 (464) - 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.
