Cornerstone Copper

Washington D.C.'s Chocolate City Beer's Cornerstone Copper Ale checks in at a nice 27 IBUs. I had a breakfast pint on tap at a cafe near my hotel (What? I was on vacation.) It arrived a hazy, burnt orange coloour, topped with a thin white head. The aroma was slightly malty with a dose of apple cider. The flavour had that same malt notes with a whisper of cinnamon and some autumn fruit sweetness.
If you're in Washington, this is an ale worth tracking down. It's got great drinkability and it's plenty refreshing. I suspect it'd be particularly great in the fall.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
