From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on July 14, 2015

Copper-amber pour with a modest, long lasting off-white head.

Nice sweet caramel malty notes on the nose along with a low hop profile and maybe a touch of peat moss or tobacco

Medium body.

Better than average roasted malt taste with a modest bitter and dry finish. A pretty good copper ale overall.

Slow pouredInto a challis with an an awesome Amber color, a ton of carbonation, and a head that sticks to the edges of the glass. Smell is sweet and full of wheat; very enjoyable. Taste is good pale ale meets summer ale with some wheat influence. Not what I expected but very good.

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: crystal clear; amber colored; 1 finger off white head that receded quickly to a thin collar; OK lacing;

S: black pepper, lemon, a little metallic;

T: light caramel/toffee up front; lemon comes in mid-palate and brings some bitterness with it; light bitterness with a little metallic note on the finish;

M; medium bodied; medium to high carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: Blue Point calls this a copper ale; Beer Advocate calls it a pale ale; doesn't really match up will with either style; nothing memorable - the metallic note isn't a positive;
