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.

Fine Pale ale specimen. Poured in a beer glass it has cloudy copper appearance with pretty 1" thick head. Not a strong aroma but invites you to take a sip. Smooth, mild hoppiness and no adverse aftertaste.

Pours dark copper with zero head. Malty aroma. Very malty backbone. Delicious beer, well worth it.

Quite English alright with a very bready malt and a hint of floral aroma against the more American piney bitterness of the hops. Nice blend.

Diabobale (252) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - FEB 22, 2015
Una english pale ale sopra gli standard. Di colore ambrato, molto limpido, con lievi riflessi ramati, si presenta con una schiuma molto fine bianca, non abbondante e nemmeno troppo persistente. all’olfatto viene fuori con predominanza assoluta la nota di uva, seguita da tè nero e lievi sentori di carruba. Molto fruttata comunque. Al palato il corpo molto ben equilibrato e consistente sprigiona note maltate e caramellate, senza altri sentori. Al palato e nel retrogusto prevalgono note erbacee, quasi terrose, che danno un buon amaro e una lunga persistenza che però non infastidisce il sorso che risulta molto secco. Di buona beveribilità complessiva.

Zlotta (157) - Bonn, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2015
0,355 l bottle from Rudat, 5.4 % abv, best before 7/6/2015. Clear, amber with a big, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Light floral or citrusy aroma with hints of nuts. Sweetish taste of nuts, roasted malts and toffee. Short, slightly bitter finish. Thin to medium body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Pleasant beer with high sessionability. Very taste, rather mild and well-balanced.

danielecamo (585) - ITALY - JAN 17, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore ramato, schiuma fine e poco persistente, limpida. Aroma intenso di caramello e toffee che aumenta allo scaldarsi della birra. Ben bilanciato da una luppolatura erbacea e terrosa. Al palato ritroviamo il caramello dominanta con la luppolatura che bilancia bene la dolcezza senza però donare freschezza alla birra. Probabilmente un pò stanca, con luppoli che ne risentono.

Pours a coppery orange. Lots of lacing. Molasses and honey on the nose. Full bodied. Some sweetness from the malts, toffee, and bitter hops. A flavorful pale ale. I’m a fan.

Tap at Beer Hunters. Clear deep amber color, steady off-white head. Toffee pale malty aroma. Light-bodied to medium-bodied. Pale malty, toffee. Maybe better on the other side of the bond.

bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear deep amber color, good beige head that drops, after a minute or two, to a solid cover, bands of lace. Taste is malt with a little peach (or is it apricot?) that flaunts hops on the swallow, only to have malt reassert itself on a drifting, long finish. But, wait, at the tail end bitter hops once again sweep all else away. A marvelous brew for 5%, tasty, balanced, intriguing,...a winner.
