First had: on tap at P.J. Whelihan's, Haddonfield, NJ

Brewed by Victory for PJ Whelihan's, as the name would imply. Poured a clear, copper-amber color with a thin, fizzy head, fed by obvious carbonation. Smell of grains, pils malts, and light floral hops; very light. Light body and light taste, sweet German and pils malts, lightly hopped with floral and slight citrus accents. Nothing special, but drinkable at least.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Bottom Line: Session-able and affordable at $4 per 21 oz. pour, but a little cloying in flavor and sweetness, with notes of caramel and good malt flavor.

It may be that I just don't appreciate the style, but I think this beer has caramel flavor notes that finish somewhat sickly-sweet. The beer tastes how it looks - "Brown."

The beer is moderately dry, but I found myself wishing for more dryness. There is no hop flavor that stands out either. Nice moderate head on the pour I received

This is not a bad beer by any means, but I'd rather drink the PJW 30th Anniversary Ale.

P.J.W Copper Lager

LOOK: Pours a rich clear amber. Soapy white foam forms and has a good staying power. For an amber lager, this fits the bill.

SMELL: Lager yeast , fresh hops, bread, caramel malts.

TASTE: Rich, highly caramelized malts, a bit of floral, earthy hops and some bread are the primary flavors. Probably all malt, but does have a good deal of graininess as well. Lightly bitter, easy drinking beer. Medium bodied and well carbonated.

OVERALL: A decent go to lager, especially when at a p.j. Wellingtons location. Solid contract beer, would certainly have it again some day.
