More yellow than copper, thin white head. Malty bread, kind of plain. Lightest sweetness. Medium body. Drinkable, but not exciting...

12oz new bottle 12/5/11 (Trader Joe’s Naperville)-40° in English Pint-Pours a slightly hazy light copper color. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is not bad but not good.

I think this bottle is a little old....but it’s OK. Has some hop kick and a little flavor but was old when we got it, malt seems decent....i’ll reserve opinion for next year.

I actually think the Copper Hook has a great smell. But there’s no head, the color is not quite as golden as I would like to see out of an amber ale, and the taste is okay on immediate impact, but the taste itself is extremely lacking.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a vibrant golden-apricot color with a large creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweetish caramel with vague fruity and citric hops. The flavor was tangy and sweetish with caramel, lemon, orange, nut and bread elements. The finish was medium length tangy citrus, honey and bread. Medium body. Pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark yellow, hazy. No carbonation. Plain aroma, sourdough bread, pepper, lemon. First thing that strikes me is the yeast flavor- cinnamon, pepper, with a nice hoppy finish (pine). Everything about this beer is subtle and unexpected. Rich flavors, nice balance, overall enjoyable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours orange with a medium white head. Aromas of sweet, bready malt, and mild hops. The flavor is nearly identical; sweet malt, too sweet, with not enough balancing hops. Not great.
