COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper amber in color, this medium bodied ale has a great balanced flavor. A fruity spicy hop finish compliments in malty caramel taste. Think of English pale ale dry hopped with German Tettnang hops. This ale was made to sustain you during the long New England winter.

Jellied copper with a yellow glow. Small, off white, tiny bubbled head. Slow, big bubbled carbonation. Spicy hop aroma with undercurrents of peach syrup. Crisp, hoppy and boldly flavored. Spicy hops and a dry caramel base injected with the stewed peaches house character. Medium full body. Quite rich, yet briskly carbonated and bitter. Yeast pour darkens the liquid and firms up the now creamy head. Smoother and gentle, yet firmly spicy. Finishes with a ton of green, leafy, spicy hops and a creamy, fruit mix. Very nice winter sessional.

On tap. Red-brown with small off-white head. Aroma is malty, sweet. Medium body, a little oily. Flavor is pretty much malt, on the sweeter side, caramel, a little spice. Ok.

22oz bomber vitalized by the rain. Taste is border line non fullfilling. Like an amped up ale but too poser like to sink in the taste of excellence. Pours solid tan brown sade with nothing to see through. Goes down like an ice cube down a wet slide, but has a slinky resistance to the aftertaste that keeps you coming back. The Berkshires are beautiful.

Draught. Pours mahogany with a medium beige head. Aroma is sweet malt, grain, and spice. Taste is muddled caramel and fruit with a little spice. Lightly metallic. Drying, bitter finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel.

A beautiful cloudy dark orangy amber color. Nice malty (almost pumpkin) aroma with a very clean and easy malty taste. Perfect as a winter beer as the alcohol is just high enough to warm you. Citrusy aftertaste.

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2006
[tap @ Bukowski’s] Pours a golden color. Aroma is sweet and inviting. Flavors are pretty interesting- kind of spicy, yet fruity as well. Nothing too overpowering. Nice malt background makes for a good hop finish.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2005
Cuivrée en couleur, très faible mousse beige pale. Malt, houblon citronné et floral d’influence anglaise, un peu boisé, traces de cuivre et haut indice de sucre en arôme. Noisettes, vieilles feuilles de menthe et léger caramel en bouche. Corps plutôt mince, carbonatation effacée. Échantillon en fût au American Beer Fest, Boston, 18 Juin 2005.

Tap pours orange copper with little of white head. The aroma is light of toasted grain, mostly bready. The flavor is smooth grain and earthy German hops with a light fruity green apple crisp drying finish. Not bad, mostly simple.

Has a apple cider look to it and smell is malted. Taste is of malts, feels heavy and finishes with a slight bitterness. Overall a great heavy beer for the winter.
