Tried this just because of the cool name, low price tag, and sessionable abv%.

A - Copper
S - Weird...
T - Bitter, but it's weird.
M - Light, smooth
O - Not a fan.

My verdict is that I would rather drink this than Buds, Coors, Corona, Heineken, etc, however, I'd take just about any micro-brew over it.

Maybe this could be used for cooking in some way - perhaps on the grill? Won't be purchasing this again until I experiment for cooking.

A clever name will sell a beer once but it will not bring me back. Attractive on the surface as I examine its pretty orange color and bright complexion but with little substance to back it up. I so wanted to love it but I was left feeling empty and looking for so much more. Sigh.

Had a few while playing the golf course the brewery also opperates. An odd brew the say the least, doesn't seem like it has a solid place in any category. Off smells and after taste that couldn't be placed as well as lack of ginger anywhere. However, it's light enough to be a session beer, I really thought that was the only upside.

Just simply not good. Was expecting a lot more. Not a lot of flavor. Tastes and feels very cheap.

So not sure if this an APA or farmhouse ale. The color looks murky cooper. Smell is not gods/bad. Taste has some good flavor and some bitters I can't place. I do like it is a smooth drink. Gotta give this beer scores that are just average.

Can at America on Tap
Deep golden color with a decent white head. Rich bready caramel maltiness with some earth and citrus hop top counter. Decent Pale ale.

Terrible beer. The only thing worse than this beer are the other beers made by this brewery. They are simply the worst beers I have ever had. Terrible.

Poured a nice copper color with over two fingers of head - this baby was live! The nose is bready but also had a hint of Belgian yeast. The same holds with the flavor. The mild sourness on the finish was not terribly pleasant.
