Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2009
Aroma: Citrus, caramel, grains
Appearance: Copper, clear, thin white head
Flavor: Grainy sweetness, a little caramel (stronger in the nose then the taste) and a citrus finish
Palate: Medium (tending toward light) body, nice smooth drink
Overall this is a decent springtime beer (though it was pretty cold in NYC last week). I guess its grouped as a specialty grain due to the rye taste, but otherwise I thought the labeling of copper ale was pretty accurate. Nice offering, will save a few for warmer days, and see how they do in that environment.
From bottle. Amber colour with a thin white lace. Honey in the aroma with a hint of malt. Bitter refreshing ale. Sweet tangy finish. Not bad. cheap (5857) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2009
On tap at the Mad Mex in Robinson. Nice and bubbly sparkling pale lager appearance. Not much detectable aroma. No bad olfactory on the nose. Interesting mild hop and new leather tastes. Barely any carbonation. Has a pleasant saison attitude about it. Decent well mannered finish, overall not bad!

Bottle: Deep orange golden with a wispy weak off white head. Some subdued, lightly perfumy hops with a grassy note and mild orangey citrus. Thin bodied- fizzy. Lightly sweet malt back in the flavor- a bit papery with some mild orange (cascade) hops, that seem stale. Perfumy, lean, with residual papery grain and an off astringency toward the finish of what seems like weird phenolics? Eh. bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2009
I enjoyed this beer. Nice color, nice body. Very dry and slightly bitter. I’m guessing Specialty grain means ’Rye’. Since that seems to be the popular opinoin. Either way, I like it. It’s nice to see something new from Blue Point as well as be available outside of the brewery. SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 16, 2009
12oz bottle shared by nuplastikk. My first specialty grain rating. The bottle claims copper ale, and no mention of any odd grains, though rye seems to be the culprit here. A lasting light beige head sits atop a copper body. Spicy malt and light grassy hops in the aroma. Lightly toasty, almost chewy malt, some caramel, spicy but mild hops and a lightly bitter finish. Medium-light bodied with crisp but fine carbonation. balanced, pretty clean flavors and nice light malt character. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 14, 2009
(12oz bottle, thanks nupplastikk) Medium beige head atop crystal clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel/bread, some spice. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, light spice, rye. Light-medium body, lightly sticky. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Bottle shared by nuplastikk: Pours a transparent copper amber with a thin, stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of citrusy grassy noble hops and a touch of grainy semi-sweet pale malt. Starts with decent body and mild caramel sweetness with some mild rye flavor before a drier, grainy finish with some light citrusy hops. A pretty drinkable and balanced brew, but nothing special.
