Drink: Outlaw Bronco Copper Ale

Size: 473 mL tallboy
True to its name, this ale is a healthy copper colour in the glass, with medium density head.
Without strong aromatics, there is only a light malt tang with the suggestion of gentle hops.
Light to medium bodied and with a light mouthfeel, despite the greater than 5% ABV, this has a gentle toffee taste with balanced roast maltiness.
In the style of many amber and copper ales, such as the Flying Monkey’s Confederation Ale, this one finishes with a gentle bitterness that cleanses the palate.
Nothing groundbreaking, but another Ontario twist on classic British pub ales.
Hoochsavvy Grade: A-
