Bronco Copper Ale
Outlaw Brew Co., Bronco contains 5.6% alcohol. Sold in 473mL cans with a riverboat gambler motif, it proved to be a handsome ruby-copper beer; hazy and with a a healthy eggshell head.
Bronco had a sweet and malty nose, with notes of caramel, bread, roasted malt, and copper. The flavour had a metallic bent, but layered over a hearty malt and lots of sweetness.
This ale was pretty appealing, though a bit too sweet. It had some round caramel notes that were a bit distracting. A heartier hops finish would have helped matters. What it did, though, was alert me to the Outlaw Brew Co., an outfit I'll be sure to monitor.
Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
