COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper-colored ale is medium-bodied and highly hopped. Its flavor is delightfully complex: tangy fruit at the start, with an assertive hop crispness and a long malty palate that one well-known beer writer has compared to the flavor of freshly-baked bread.

Dark amber with a taller off white head. Earthy/woody malt aromas along with some mild fruit. Flavors of cocoa, light oak and peat. Mild herbal bitterness. A nice change of pace from the resent onslaught of IPAs, APAs and general over hopped brews. Thanks to Falconeye8 for this brew.

New Holland had tons of head, Smuttynose didnít have as much. Thats ok because Smuttynose is a different style but nonetheless a very very good beer. Iíve had two of this line previously and both were outstanding. This is no exception. Of the English Style this is the 2nd best EPA Iíve had to date.

Hazy orange-amber. Finger of beige foam. Earthy, fruity, malty aroma. Medium feel. Earthy flavour of malty (caramel, brown sugar, chocolate?), fruit (orange) & wood. Some diacetyl present

Some will say this brew is boring and yes, thereís nothing exactly special about it. However, it is a very satisfying English-style Pale Ale. Aroma is malty. Taste is mildly bitter with a solid amount of hops, caramel malt and some citrus. Mouthfeel is fantastic; full, round and very creamy. Extremely solid brew. Recommended.

My favorite domestic beer. This beer has just the right balance between the sweet tasting malt and the hop bite. Just bitter enough to satisfy, but had a sweet pleasant aftertaste, that makes this quite a complex brew. Another great Smuttynose beer.

not a very floral pale ale but very tasty with a nice bitterness and citrus essence.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Pours a darker amber color, slightly cloudy with a nice white head that falls quickly. Aroma is very fruity with a faint hop aroma. Taste was malty and sweet at first with a fruity flavor. Ended slightly bitter. Very nicely balanced pale ale.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2004
12oz bottle, 05.18.04 Pours dark coppery-amber-gold, cloudy; smallish head, quick fade, slight lace. Aromas are fruity, citrusy hops, bag of jelly beans. Flavors are light, white toast; tart fruit candy. As the description asserts, the middle lasts well into the finish and beyond. Sourdough pancakes. Finish is sharp and nicely bitter, and bakers cocoa(?). Palate is balanced nicely for a English PA, not too astringent, not overly malty. Smuttynose knows beers.

pours a reddish brown color. hoppy and citrus smelling beer. somewhat bitter tasting. this- along with the old dog brown was not too impressive. id drink it again, but i think id rather drink one of the bombers i got.
