Description:  "Singletrack Copper Ale is refreshing, yet full-flavored; a medium-bodied copper ale.  Not too light, not too dark...It's just right" — Boulder Beer Co.

Random thoughts:   This is the third Boulder brew I've profiled.  I really enjoyed their Never Summer and Hazed & Infused beers. 

The tasting:   Golden orange in color, clear, with a white head that dissipated slowly.  Aroma of caramel malts and something lager-esque.  I didn't smell the hops.   Flavor of caramel and biscuit-like malts. Again, no hops.  Medium bodied, effervescent mouth feel, with a dry finish.  Very drinkable.

Rating:  3 star.  Good.  I'd drink this if someone gave it to me.   This is a good, but forgettable beer.  There just isn't much going on in terms of flavor or aroma.  The first two Boulder Beers I tasted, Hazed & Infused and Never Summer set a very high bar for me.  While nice, Singletrack doesn't match up.

Have you tried Singletrack or any other Boulder Beers?
