Decent color and good head retention. Nice clear dark golden or light copper color. Reasonably mild characteristics, though a bit heavy for something associated with a "spring fling". I can't get around a metallic smell and taste I'm getting from it. I don't know if it's hydrolysis from bad grain, something from the brewing equipment or just poor water quality going into it. Whatever the case, nickel on the nose and on the tongue. I think it'd be a decent brew otherwise.

A: Copper, as stated on the bottle. Thin head and thin lacing. No haziness.

S: Smells like hops. Wasn't really expecting a pale ale since it's called a copper ale - which can also mean a malty beer. Anyways, floral and citrus hops mostly.

T: Spicy with a definite earthy tone. A tiny bit of a metallic taste on the back end.

M: Light bodied and smooth.

O: The initial taste was pretty nice but the finish killed it for me. Slightly like a macro with the metallic taste. Fix the finish on this and its a nice brew. Definitely will not buy this again combined with the fact that InBev is taking over Blue Point.

Reviewed on 8/9/08. On tap at the brewery. Pours orange with a small light tan head. Aroma of bitter rye seed. Flavor of rye and parmesean cheese with a bitter hops finish. Too bitter for me.

12oz bottle.

Poured a medium and clear amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toastiness with some caramel. Tastes of the same toastiness and caramel. Not too much to this one. Body on the weaker side.

Notes from and tasted on: 6/13/09
