This beer arrives a clear copper color. The head is a half inch in height, and recedes slowly into a nice cap of foam. The aroma is full of fruit. Tangerines, passion fruit, grapefruit, and green apple. The taste has all the fruit of the aroma with the addition of some nice floral notes, and a firm bitterness. There is also a noticeable malt presence in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a velvety texture, and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a good beer that I would certainly drink again.

Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery Aces …pale ale? "copper ale"? Some kind of ale. 5.8% ABV.

Clear, crimson/bronze colored, slim off-white head. Lookin' good.

Aroma: low in bitterness, high in fruity esters. A blend of berry and citrus fruit, a true melange in the nose. Sweet malt notes whisper from behind. Pleasing, enticing, urging me to drink.

Taste: Flash of bitterness on the tongue, soon overtaken by malty flavors, caramel notes leading the charge. Bright, brash flavors wash over the palate at first, sweet malt ends it out. Terrific balance. Good drinkin'. An easy going ale, and tasty, too.

Simcoe, Eldorado, Amarillo, and Citra hops in 5 additions. Many different malts. I'll put up a link to a full description from their website, right about here. ...nope, can't do that, it's no longer on the website, which means it's no longer on tap...luckily, I copied it first! Here 'tis:
"We wanted to put some extra color into this hoppy copper ale collaboratively designed by Mike and Joel. Dosed with 5 additions of some of our favorite varieties, Amarillo, Citra, Eldorado and Simcoe hops gives it's name. A Pils malt back shone is augmented by a solid caramel structure from two English crystal malts. A splash of de-bittered German roasted malt deepens the copper finish to the beer, Dextrin malt adds a fullness of body and along with the caramel helps to balance the bitterness. 5.8% aBV. "
