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.

The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is grain, bread and a little bit of orange. The flavor is more of the same, with quite a bit of sweetness from the toffee and bread malt. There is a hint of orange, but basically this is just a beer full of grainy sweetness. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Certainly nothing special.

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.

Poured into a pint glass.

A-light beige head and a somewhat hazy amber appearance with minimal lacing.

It wasn't terrible but I don't think i'll have it again.

This pours a light orange hue with a thin fizzy head. It holds a bit of Orange on the nose with an apricot sweetness and an evident caramel malt. Caramel malt leads the taste with hints of Orange and apricot, sweetness from the fruity sugars and barley like grain. Certainly drinks easy but it's so thin it's hard rate it any higher. This comes across as the very definition of OK.
