The Seventh Beer o' Xmas 2012: Epic's Copper Cone Pale Ale

If the beer gods ever create a "winter" pale ale category, the seventh Beer o' Xmas will be found as the textbook example of what it should be. A delicious, but dank pale that is full of Holiday-esque character. So, for the Seventh Beer o' Xmas that the Beer Gnerd pushed on thee... Epic's Copper Cone Pale Ale. 

Pours a hazy dark copper color with a thick, one finger of sticky head. The nose is fruity with citrus, pine, a mild malt backbone and floral bouquet. The taste starts with mild pine resin, and sweet caramel. Next comes an earthy citrus character with a mild spiciness. It all culminates in a nice balance that makes for a very enjoyable pale ale. 

Available state wide at most liquor stores. 

Cheers!
