I stole a beer from my brother for this? Aroma is skunky. Taste is not much better. Palate is probally the best thing here. Not what I was expecting. Sorry bro, I owe you a beer.

DCLawyer (1429) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle->SA. Copper with slight head that dissipates immediately. Aroma: sweet malt with hint of hops. Flavor is weak, more lager than ale, with earth and grains. Not a fan.

Ember color with a slight haze. True to it’s name, it has a rust/copper flavor along with some Biscuit and Marzen notes. It’s like I’m tasting a bunch of old rusty pennies in my mouth. Could’ve been a decent Amber Ale had it not been for the strong metallic flavor, but as it is right now I would not have this again

Clear light bronze color. nice light caramel malt nose and flavor. A little grassy hop adds nice balance. Good, approachable beer.

hypn0toad (267) - Maryland, USA - OCT 5, 2012
This is alright. Not great. But okay. Kinda "coppery" which must be the caramel or the maltiness. In any case this is only alright.

DruncanVeasey (7249) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle@ukulele freakout BBQ, the jungle, Kaua’i, 21/08/12. Er, copper with a well behaved several-finger bloom of foam. Soapy cherry, sweet hay aroma. Pretty flavourless with hints of nothing, old rusty metal, marzipan, stale boiled sweets. A dull beer to accompany a pretty exotic experience.

mkgrenwel (571) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Pours orange/amber with a quick receding white head. Aroma of honey, toast and orange. Flavor is the same. Clean and simple. Not overly sweet for an amber. Could use more toast/dryness, but still balances well. Hops are delicate. Mossy and slightly floral. Really a basic beer, but works well as a spring seasonal, or something tasty to wash down a sandwich.

DalzAle (1999) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Bottle. Clear amber pour, almost no head (some lasting bubbles though) and an aroma of mellow caramel. Flavor is slightly sweet caramel, nice and nutty malt, and sweet earthy mellowness all the way through. As an amber, this is really nice.

~Light biscuity malt and light caramel malt with earthy/floral hops. ~Pours a clear light orange color with white bubble head that quickly disappears. ~Sweet malty flavor with a touch of spicy/earthy hops for balance. ~Med body, med high CO2, Sweet, slightly bitter finish. ~Not much to this one, well balanced and enjoyable.
