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.

This beer lacked all of my favorite things in a beer. It would be a good introduction to a new beer drinker. Just to lite for me.

Light brown color with nice light tan head. Sharp citrus hop taste well balanced by nice mellow caramel finish.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2004
Very nice fruity aroma. The flavor is a bit fresh and citric, then goes to a bitter and fruity finish. Found notes of elder flower in this one.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Deep copper, almost brown color. Nice hop and malt aroma. Flavor was earthy and malty with a nice dose of hops, bittersweet. Medium body. I'd drink again.

raymow (821) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2003
I don't know about "the flavor of freshly-baked bread", but I can say that this is a pretty good beer. Nice copper coloring with a sweet-hoppy taste. I'll buy this again. The only bad part about the beer was the aroma. I can't put my finger on it, but it just doesn't smell all that appealing.

TheBeerGod (5284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Pours a hazed reddish-orange with a sturdy off-white head. The aroma is comprised of fruit and hops. The taste is predominantly hops but also has fruit, and some hints of malt and yeast. There is also a hint of soil. The mouthfeel is a little bitter but is drinkable. Decent pale ale.

Darkish orange color with a white head. Nice hops. Nice Aroma. A good Pale Ale.

maltdog (618) - Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2003
Very deep copper/amber, almost red. Ecru head is very creamy and long lasting. Sharp citrusy hop, toast and roasted nuts in the nose. Restrained zingy hops give way to mellow almost-burnt toast and roasty almost-coffee flavors. The mouthfeel is full and creamy, almost buttery. A spike of metallic hop followed by coffeground bitterness in the mild yet lasting finish. This beer seems confused, with no real dominant character, and having more elements of a brown than a pale, yet failing to be either.

rudolf (2341) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2003
The nose is well balanced. You can smell the hops, but they don't overpower the grassy sweetness. The beer is very cloudy in the glass. There is a LOT of sediment in there - is this supposed to be there? This is the 2nd smuttynose beer where I've had sediment problems (the other was Big A IPA) It tastes kind of burnt at first, followed by some hops and a fruity/bitter aftertaste.
