Iíd love to give this points for hometown pride, but canít. I donít like this. The commercial description claims itís bronze and yep that was the strongest flavour for me -- like licking bronze. This is too weak in flavour and aroma otherwise, surprised itís 5%.

Poured a copper color with white head settling to spots of lacing. Aroma of caramel malts and some hops. Taste is malty sweet with a touch of hoppy bitterness in the end. A decent pale ale.

On tap @ Howard Johnson (by the Commonwealth Pool). Clear amber pour with a moderate white head, medium retention. Aroma is sweet, fruity, and malts. Taste is lightly hopped, malts, and mild sweet citrus (orange?). Smooth, medium bodied, and quite good.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crystal clear and amber, Piperís dumped into a glass produces less than expected white head and pretty much goes average all the way. Aromas of sweet malts, slightly floral hops and maybe a metallic feel (not sure). Taste is pretty standard as well with decent malts on the sweet side, weak spicy hops and a touch of overripe orange fruit (not oranges though). Fairly smooth beer, medium bodied with a weak bitter finish.
