Copper Grasshopper ESB - 5.1%
Wonderful balance of malt and hops in this American-style extra special bitter. Makes for smiling taste buds.

Our hero had retired to one of the many scenic, secluded spots at Black Star and was pondering new flavor profiles. As he sat, a dusty, copper-colored grasshopper landed on John's knee and settled in for a rather lengthy stay. The color of the critter set John to thinking of a nice, copper-hued beer, and of course it would have to be hoppy. Voila. Inspiration comes from everywhere.
