thanksto my brother for sending me this 1 Dark copper pour with a very thin amount of tan head. Aroma is kind of sweet and malty with some hops and some caramel. Flavor was kind of sweet and caramelly at the beginning with some hops, not that much though, but a rather sweet and malty finish.

Can. Pours clear copper with a finger of white head, a little lacing, and minimal carbonation. Aroma is fairly floral with some light citrus. Taste is light, crisp and has some hop bitterness on the tongue. The finish is fairly dry. This is pretty darn good but not quite up there with some of the top pales.
