12-ounce bottle into globe glass

This one is copper just like the label says. We'll see if the "rich" of "rich copper-colored ale" holds up as well. The head sits nearly an inch thick. Good retention and lacing as well. The copper color is not perfectly clear, perhaps just because it is somewhat dark and auburn. The smell is minty and has a bit of pineapple, and sour apricot. There are notes that remind me of dental impression material. Roasted beets in the nose become heartier yam and other chewy roots in the front of the mouth. The malts in this one are bready and thick; a bit of roasted malt is present in the middle, while a citrus hoppiness kicks near the end.The mouthfeel is medium and the carbonation refreshingly high. Floral accents flavor a sweet maple and grainy base that leaves a sour but not bitter taste and a bit of syrupy feeling on the roof.

This is a remarkable and unique red ale. The hops are not so grapefruit-dominated but instead much more subtle and complex. I'd like to know what sort of yeast was used, the sour esters and bit of licorice taste make this so tasty. And that is from someone who is no Amber fan.

Bottle poured into a pint glass.

A. This pours a gorgeous amber color with a couple fingers of head and lingers and leaves lacing on the glass.

S. It is pretty light on the nose, some sweet malt and an almost orange citrus aroma.

T. The flavor is some mildly sweet hops with just a touch of hops on the finish. It is pretty mild.

M.It has a thin to medium body with just a little carbonation.

O. Its a decent presentation of an amber ale and worth a try if your a fan of this style.
