Pours a cloudy reddish brown from a bottle with a thinnish head. Sour lager smell with a sweet non alcoholic flavor. Hope my wife likes it since its hers.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours orange, slightly hazy with a large a sustaining head. Sweat caramel aroma with a trace of bitterness. Rather fruity flavour, immediately sweet on the palate, but this quickly gives way to a lingering dryness. Otherwise very good, except for some medicinal phenol which slightly taints the aroma and finish, understandable for a new brewery I suppose. Were it not for that, this review would be a rave because this is an otherwise very characterful beer, which Iím sure will improve with subsequent batches.

Assaggiata alla spina, niente di eclatante, meglio tornare alla stout...prevalenza di malto caramellato

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle after dinner in Market Lane. Pours a deep copper/red with a lasting off-white foam. Aroma of apples, citrus, redcurrant and caramel. Medium caramel sweetness with a nice citrus finish. Slightly dry, lingering hops and smooth carbonation. Worked very well as an after-dinner beer, very light and refreshing.

bottle at home - rich tasting, dark/copper colored beer. Prefer the same stableís Helvick Gold and overall find myself liking IPAs in general

I agree with onlyrocknroll, pours hazy orange with a nice head and smells of caremel. The sweet fruit followed by a long dryness is also spot on which makes the beer taste like a cider. A nice beer that I hope will improve, I would certainly have it again even to only take me back to my cider days!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml. bottle Pours a cloudy red/orange with minimal head. Sweet malty aroma. A light taste, hoppy with a sharp and lingering finish. Curiously reticent impression overall; might need to try again.
