Beer Review: Otter Creek Copper Ale

Beer: Copper Ale
Brewer: Otter Creek Brewing
Source: On-tap
Rating: *** (7.1 of 10)
Comments: Appropriately copper-colored, cloudy and bubbly this is an attractive beer.  The taste is lovely – earthy with malty caramel and a nice bitter hop finish.  A good well-balanced and drinkable beer.

Comments: This is a deep dark stout with a creamy foam head.  It carries a smokey aroma and flavor that sets it apart and one that I really like.  This is a robust and well-balanced beer.

Beer Review: Drifter Pale Ale

Beer: Drifter Pale Ale
Brewer: Widmer Brothers Brewing Company

Rating: * (5.3 of 10)
Comments: This a cloudy amber beer with a whiff of hops and citrus.  The flavor is bitter – a bit more bitter than I like – and that kind of overwhelms everything else.  It’s a decent beer I suppose, but I wasn’t too crazy about it.
