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.

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.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Slightly hazed amber body, light frothy light tan head. Light hop and bread aroma. The flavor is quite bready with a nice little bit of a hop bite towards the end. The palate is quite delightful, for a session beer. Not too shabby.

ahhhh - there is nothing better in the world after a 12 hour trip from Germany to NJ than sitting after a quick shower in JoeVees garden in the sun and having a relaxed first beer!!!! Nice chocolate smoked nose. Hoppy with some sweet toffee untertones. Nicely balanced.

An aroma of hops and caramel. A flavor of hops and caramel. A decent pale ale, not more, not less.

BennyTicklez (621) - USA - APR 24, 2004
Pours dark brown off the tap. The flavor of this beer isn't very assertive. Maybe a hint of caramel in there. Kind of dark and heavy compared to other pale ales I've had. It's different, not to my liking.

Dorwart (2412) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2004
Decent head with almost no carbonation. Tart and hoppy aroma. Very hoppy. Slightly floral with a touch of fruit. Color is a dark amber. Good hop flavor along with a bit of roastyness. Almost like burnt toast. Finish is roasty also and leaves a nice bitter aftertaste. A very good pale ale and another very good beer from Smuttynose.

hopscotch (9955) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2004
Crystal clear, copper-colored ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Bisquity, citrusy aroma with notes of milk chocolate. Malty flavor with big fuggle or cascade hops for balance. Medium-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel and a lengthy, bitter finish. Recommended.
