Light-moderate hoppy aroma with some yeast notes as well. Avg.-sized, fine bubble, creamy, white head with excellent lacing. Head, however, is mostly diminishing. Body is true to the brew's name...copper. Light bitter flavor, nothing outstanding. Good, somewhat doughy finish. Good session beer. P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 21, 2003
piney nose with some rich malt, copper color, no head. thin, highly hopped yet still weak. grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2002
Has an initial bite in the front of your mouth that melts into smoothness as it flows back. Tastes of pears. The smoothness turns into a good bitter edge as it hits the back of your mouth. Has a strong alcoholic taste. cb (810) - Roeland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 9, 2002
It tasted a little spicy in the back of my throat, slightly sweet aftertaste. Not anything unusual about it though. austinpowers (2828) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 1, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2005 How interesting that this is brewed by the Colorado-based brewpub of the Rock Bottom chain. Citric hops but not complicated. A fair effort if you like a hoppy amber ale with a spicy bite. OK. Pleasantly surprised by the amount of malt present.

On tap: Light malt aroma, Amber color. Full bodied but not much taste. Braudog (6719) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2004 Very middle of the road. Slight hop, copper color. OK, but nothing out of the ordinary. Re-Rate May 04: noted an odd sour factor and metallic factor. Downgraded. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 19, 2002
Lt copper color, small head. Malted rye and roasted malts, some spiciness. There is slight hop bitterness as well, but malt sweetness prevails. Finish is clean and crisp, Aftertaste is sweet, no bitterness ENTROPY (141) - Terra Bella, California, USA - AUG 16, 2002

Nice beer, but what’s with the label? it just looked stupid with those cyclists on it. Very well balanced with a fruits and hops...nice malt finish....I would classify it it as a pale ale from what I tasted....pretty good nonetheless.
