Reddish copper color, thin to edge-only collar. Slight malt aroma, sweet malt taste with a burnt toast after taste.

Poured with a nice, pale beige head. Nothing sharp or vivid in the taste, just a good, round flavor- slightly sweet. I had it with a dinner salad and it set off the bitter greens and the meat and cheese very well. Will look for it again.

L: Burnt orange colored, lots of carbonation in the glass. Virtually no head to speak of, no lacing.
S: Basic aroma of bread and grain. Sweet granola aroma.
T: Lots of grain again. Almost with that slight grape-like grain quality of a dobbelbock. Really digging the malt in this. Finishes with a light peppery hop bite on the finish, more herbal or earthy. Great balance here for an amber ale.
F: For an ale this is crushable as hell. Light body, highly refreshing. Slightly sprite-like from the carbonation, but remains smooth and easy to drink. My kind of beer.
O: Highly enjoyable, bought a sixer for St. Patty's but had to break into one before since I've been eyeing this at the store. Did not disappoint and certainly something I will not have any qualms about drinking next weekend. On the contrary, looking forward to it!

Poured copper, brownish red into a pint glass. Malty, biscuit aroma that I found pleasant. Taste is malt forward, with a little carmel sweetness. A slight hoppy finish. A medium to thin mouthfeel. Maybe could have been more robust. Generally, one of my favorite beers of this type which I drink alot of because i do not like overly hoppy beers . On draft, I give it an even higher rating

Look: Crystal clear ruby brown with a nice white head. Minimal activity.

Smell: Toasted biscuit, caramel, a bit nutty, and a mild floral hop.

Taste: Light and smooth. Biscuit malt, a touch of sweet caramel, floral hops, and caramel malt.

Feel: Clean and smooth. Just a bit of hop bitterness. Mild sweetness. No alcohol.

Overall: A easy drinking red ale. I wish there was just a bit more of something. But it goes down like water.

This beer pours a bold amber with a moderate head. The aroma features notes of toffee, nougat, pecans, vanilla, and maple. The flavor features notes of toffee, nougat, maple, black pepper, and light roast coffee. Mouthfeel is soft wit gentle carbonation. Overall this is a really nice beer, full of complex malt driven flavors, yet completely balanced. Really wonderful stuff.

Strong copper color which is consistent with this style. Only a trace amount of lace. Aroma is primarily sweet . Easy to drink with a full mouth-feel. Notes of biscuits and honey. A new favorite.

Copperish Color with very little lacing. Smells of caramel and toffee. Tastes like lucky charms without as much sugar and toffee. Goes down pretty smooth
