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.

Bottle. Poured a nice clear deep amber color with a small off white head. The aroma was weak with the smell of citrus hops and some sweet malts. The flavor of mild malts balanced fairly well with some citrusy hops. Mouthfeel is somewhat thin to maybe medium bodied..lightly bitter and dry in the end. I liked this better after about 2/3 of the way through. My first Smuttynose ale...I need to try more.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2008 April 26, 2005; 12 oz. bottle. Clear, dark amber -- almost burnt orange pour. Rapidly dissipating head leaves just a bit of lacing. Initially fruity "hit" (as expected from Smuttynose), but I really like the malty undertones balancing this one, as the hops fly over the top into a bitter finish. Re-rate on Feb. 14, 2008: Going to bump up the "flavor" score a point . . . this is a truly-excellent Pale Ale.

[Cask at GBBF 2004] An orange beer with no head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy, but also with notes of oranges. The flavor is very hoppy and grassy and it has a very bitter end.

MolsonMan (58) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2005
Poured an amber color, with ligh lacing. Smells of malts and hops. Body is thin like the rest in the smuttynose variety. Sweet yet hoppy on the palate.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 11, 2005
Bottle aged about a year, courtesy of goldtwins: Pours a clear copper with a lightly lacing off-white head. Light green hoppy aroma with some dry caramel malt. Body has a little sweetness but is thin and mostly bitter without much malty balance. Sample is probably too old, but the beer still shows signs of weakness apart from aging.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Poured an amber color with a medium off white head. Aromas of peach, caramel, and a lightly hopped. The flavors were thin, as was the body. Not much going on up front then middle and finish had some bitterness.

Sammy (9665) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2005
A floral hops aroma, a nice amber colour. Otherwise, a metalic taste and very dry not bitter not very flavourful at all. Bubbles, head fizzed out quickly. Could not finish. Harsh carbonation. Some malts, but didn’t work

desurfer (1252) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Amber body, small white head. Aroma is faint, some slight hoppiness. Flavor is nice but nothing spectacular, some citrusy hops and a bit of maltiness. I thought this was rather average.
