Beer of the Month - Coppermoon Organic Pale Ale

Coppermoon Organic Pale Ale
We love McMenamins. 3 beers, 2 burgers, and an order of Cajun tots for $19.75....not too shabby! So you'll excuse me for posting yet again another McMenamins beer.

This time I decided to try something new instead of the Ruby or the Wheat. I went with a seasonal beer called Coppermoon Organic Pale Ale.

At first taste this beer was crisp and refreshing with a slightly bitter aftertaste. In general, the bitterness is rather low and almost unnoticeable to dark beer drinkers. However, if you are not used to drinking beer very often (like me!) you will definitely notice a bitter edge to the beer. The flavours are both floral and citrus, which is different and nice. People who like fruity hefeweizen would really love this beer.

Overall it's a great summer beer! We gave it a score of 8 out of 10 and we think this beer would score high among it's peers for it's style/variety/type....whatever you call it in the beer industry ;)
