COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beautifully colored ale strikes an agreeable balance between malt and hops. Caramel + toffee notes from the use of more highly kilned malts step up to complement this beer's assertive hop profile.

From BA review on 1-28-12 - Had on tap at the brew pub Appearance – As the name implies a nice copper color. A slightly off white head gives way to a bit of lacing as the beer sits. Smell – Some sweet caramel and toffee with a very light earthy hop aroma. Taste – From the smell I was expecting something much sweeter but was surprised to be meet with a more malty flavor profile. The sweetness of the caramel then works its way in with a bit of earthy hop flavor toward the end. Mouthfeel – A average body with a average level of carbonation. Good for the style. Overall – If your looking for a bit of a more dry copper ale then this is a good choice.

Well balanced beer that pairs easily with most foods. No over-the-top flavors, just a straightforward American amber.

dmac (3919) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Draft at Saturday lunch during Campground Brewdown. Poured a clear deep rust colored body with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of caramel, toast, light orange rind. Flavor is similar to the aroma but with less caramel and more bread. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a smooth finish. Not bad.

On tap at Town Tavern in Lewisberg, PA. Orange copper color topped by a small beige head. Toasted malt nose hints at caramel and nuts. Bittersweet toasted malt upfront. Nice sticky hop finish. Not overly complex. A good session ale.

A beautifully balanced beer. Nice spiciness in the nose. Smooth maltiness on the tongue but when you swallow you get all this hop action going on.
