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.

Clear, lively copper beer with a frothy head and an aroma of fruit and burnt caramel. Flavour is slightly more bitter, with the fruit more prominent but the toasty malt coming through slightly stronger.

degbert (1171) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep copper-orange with a high, light tan, lacy, medium-grained blown-insulation head. Nose is floral, apricot, rosemary, and biscuity. Toffee-orange sweetness on the front of the tongue, then with a herbal hops kick on the mid-palate; carbonation is light, with more treacly sweetness at the back of the mouth. Finish is long, sweet, and clean. Quite nice, and easy to drink.

Nose is yeast, peach, grain. Taste is cereal, biscuit, light bitterness malt. Incredibly forgettable bitter. I seem to have a drink with a completely different taste profile to some of the other reviews. Not exporting well?
