On tap at the Flyers restaurant at Skagit County Airport. Handsome red copper color with modest foam in the pint shaker. Medium body and sprightly carbonation.

Malty and moderately sweet. Honey taste with a tangy finish. This is the classic Amber Ale profile with a bitter, herbal aftertaste. A little too bitter but the malt flavor is pleasant.

A dark semi hazy copper with a minimal off white head. I get a bit of grapefruit and some malts on the nose and not much else. the same goes for the taste. The mouthfeel is smooth and bitter forward but OK. There is no retention, not bad by any means but next.

Flyers brews this beer exclusively for The Copper Hog restaurant in Bellingham, WA and it's always on tap at the bar. Served in Imperial pint glass. Poured a clean, clear coppery red color that had just a thin cap of off-white head that had low retention and OK lacing.

The aroma was a nice blend of malt and hops, very well balanced, and it had a bit of spicieness, perhaps from the yeast. The flavors were also a very nice balance of malt and hops and overall was a bit more spicy and tangy.

The body was fairly typical, perhaps a touch thinner than I prefer for the style, but nothing worth losing points over. Drinkability was very good, if it wasn't for the Hogs nice, rotating selection, I could easily have several of these during a game. Certainly worth trying if you visit the 'Ham.
