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.

All said and done, a well balanced pale ale. Nothing super noteworthy, but it’s easy to drink and quite refreshing.

degbert (1148) - 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?

Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy chestnut brown body with a thick off-white head. Light lacing. Aroma of leafy earthiness, dirt, tea and a minty finish. Flavour of grassy bitterness, caramel and lightly roasted malt. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Crisp and simple. Tastes like a classic Bitter.
