Pours a dark auburn, leaves a small off white head that dissipates fairly quickly as well as minimal amount of lacing on the glass.

Smells quintessentially like a beer. Some caramel notes and surprisingly present alcohol aroma. Slightly peppery.

Taste begins sweet, then comes what first thought to be some Munich malts, caramel notes present. Brown bread, hops add an earthy quality which show up for the finish, bitterness sticks to the tongue for awhile with a lasting aftertaste.

Light bodied, fairly low carbonation, smooth, leaves fairly clean, but wouldn't call it crisp.

A good copper ale, and one I definitely wouldn't turn away.

Deep copper color. Malty smell. Great tast of malt with a slight finish of hops. Medium feel. A very good brew, will purchase again.
