Pours clear blood reddish color with a creamy 2 finger tan head that faded very slowly, leaving excellent lacing coating the sides and leaves rings as it went down; a fine looking beer.

Smells of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, sweet malt, dark fruit like cherry and plum, light herbs, flowers, lightly toasted grains, floral hops and a mild boozy aroma.

Tastes sweet and malty up front, with caramel, toffee, dark fruit like cherry, apple, plum and orange, mixed with grapefruit, citrus hops, grains, brown sugar, cinnamon, floral hops, spices like pepper and coriander, dark rum, maple syrup and a light booze flavor that warms your belly after each swallow. This beer was sweet and malty up front, and then it got more complex and more hoppy as it warmed. The hops were accents and I really liked how smooth this was for such a malt heavy brew even with the slight alcohol nip.

Mouthfeel is buttery smooth, with mild carbonation, a medium body and a very sweet finish that was grainy and like it was coated with syrup.

Overall a tasty and enjoyable beer that is in an odd category altogether (red ale), yet to me was pretty good and very enjoyable. It’s a copper ale, whatever that is, and definitely worth trying.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle beer out of a pint glass.

A: Pours a cooper hue with a thick, frothy, 2-finger, white head that slowly dissipates down the side of the glass ending in a solid lace.

S: Malt and caramel aroma.

T: Smooth toasted malt and caramel flavor

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Decent brew – very smooth and well balanced.
