With dinner at Olive Garden. From the bottle.

A - advertised as copper ale; from the rim it appears to be a as advertised

S - smells a bit grainy with big caramel aromas and some faint citrus

T - big, sticky caramel followed by a quick, faint chocolate malt note and finishes with a sweet, citrus character

M - very crisp, overcarbonated, the carbonation messes with the flavors on the palate

This is a bit boring. It's also unbalanced. The flavor is dominated by the boring caramel malts and the citrus is an afterthought. I'll definitely pass on this in the future.

Pours more of a dark golden color then amber. The head dies pretty quick with a spot of lace here and there. The smell is a very light carmal, strong citrus and kinda just plain. The taste is a little better, a little more toasted malt with a stronger citrus taste. Mouthfeel is thin to slight medium. Not very great but I have no problem drinking it.

3.38/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: gold with a pretty good size head.
Aroma: orange and slight fruity smell
Taste: Very strong orange taste especially compared to normal blue moon which I think gives off a slight orange zest, malt, wheat note. Not balanced all that well.

Served from a bottle and poured into a pint glass.

Serving type: bottle
