Drinking this at The Carolina Brewery in Pittsboro NC.
Poured from a tap into a pint glass.
Smells lightly bready, spicy, malty.
Taste follows the nose nicely.
Mouth feel is medium for the style with a nice creamy finish.
Overall, a very nice amber ale that I would definitely order again.
Amber color, lot of rising bubbles. Thin white head. Slight hop aroma, otherwise nothing discernible. Flavor generally suits an amber ale, with the exception of the hops being slightly more prominent than I’d expect for the style. Thick and foamy mouthfeel. Uncomplex, but rather enjoyable.
With an amber color, it is very, very mild. If there is any taste in this beer, is more bitter than there are malts. I highly recommend the Alley Cat from Lost Coast Brewing for a better alternative. Better yet, the Nut Brown Ale from this brewery is very good alternative!
My wife an I both like this beer. When we are going through Pittsboro, we always pick up a couple of growlers. Invariably, they will be one of the seasonals, to try out, and a Copperline because we enjoy it. It is medium bodied and clean. It has a good ale taste. Great beer for anytime of year.
