2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz can thanks to xnoxhatex. Pours a slightly hazed glowing amber with a frothy off-white small head 2.5. Same weird canned fruit like aroma that is present in the other two KBC beers I’ve tried, airy, some milled malt, light citrus hops. Lightly sweet malt flavor, similar to a mild or ESB, lightly juicy citrus hops but somewhat faded into the malt, a touch of sweetness and special roast. Medium bodied with airy but full milkshake like carbonation.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Killed in the hotel room after Founders Fest 2009. 12oz can pours dirty amber with a white head. Heavy carbonation. Aroma is of scrambled eggs, light hops, grain, and grass. Smells very bland. Taste is of rotten eggs, pineapple straw, grass, and the faintest of hops. Medium mouthfeel. Lingering taste of grass. Very bland and boring.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour from a 12 oz can. Deep coppery amber color – fitting for a brew named after a copper mine. Thin head that lingers as a wafer of foam on the top, leaving ample lacing as the glass is drained. Nose dominated by hops. Pleasant and well balanced flavor – malty start with a decent hops bite to the finish. Though the can describes the ale as ‘lightly hopped’ a pleasant astringent hoppiness pervades the finish. And while the can also says it is an Oktoberfest style beer (???) it is nowhere as sweet. Very drinkable, very tasty.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Much better than their Pick Axe--a nice note of caramel in the front end before it fades to a metallic, slightly malty and slightly astringent finish. Drinkable in a pinch.

12oz can. Poured a medium and hazy amberish color with a large sized off white head. Lots of suspended floaters. Aromas of caramel, yeasty, and I was getting some card board. Tastes of caramel, and some fruitiness. I had a hard time pinning this one down.
