Taster at the brewery. Apparently they do a series in different styles in the Templeton barrels. This is was a blend of their Roller Dam Red and the 483 Pale, so they called it Copper Ale. But now I see they’ve had a Copper Ale already out. Be that as it may, this one was in a Templeton barrel. Its smell doesn’t settle specifically tot a rye whiskey barrel, but the extra whiskey note is there anyway. Bright amber in the sampler makes it look right enough like a whiskey. And the taste is of whiskey with a bit of sweetness. A bit thin compared to other barrel-aged beers, but then there’s that touch of oak, and if I can notice that, then all’s well. Finishes off deliciously like a Bourbon & Branch.
