Served out of a bottle and poured into a chilled glass

A Has a nice amber color with a subtle creamy head.

S Slight malty aroma, not much else...I will wait a bit for this to warm up and see if there are any other notes.

T Has a sharp bitterness up front with a lingering bitter finish/ after taste. Not really to much to get excited about.

M A bit zinggy on the tounge

Overall this is an average beer. Spring ales are supposed to be too complex but I cant see myself drinking more than one or two of these. Probably more worth the try on a warm summer day.

Used to like this a lot more - not sure if my tastes have changed, or it has. Either way, this is still a decent Spring Copper Ale, but there is nothing special about it.

A - pours a clear reddish orange color with 1/4 inch of foam that quickly gave way to just a ring of bubbles on the surface

S - very sublte aroma, a little bit of grassiness and malts

T - mostly malts up front with the grassiness coming through midway to finish with a malty taste in the back of your mouth

M/D - nice carbonation and mouthfeel. overall not a bad tasting brew, probably not my first choice, but thats more the style than anything else

Bought on tap and from the looks of the lack of info on the site. It think it is on tap only.

appearance - Nice copper color, and a nice foamy head with some lacing.

smell - grainy and hoppy.

taste - Taste was sweet with a small touch of malt and then ended with a bitterness and hop flavor.

mouthfeel - light medium body with some carbination.

drinkability - Nice spring beer. I rated this average because I do not like beer that is bitter and taste like grapefruit.
