It's cool. How would it look if the cent symbol(where the hell is the cent symbol on my keyboard!) and "rich copper ale" were the same color as the "2".

The white kinda sticks out to me.

Like the design and the name. Thought maybe the image of a penny on there would look good with it as well. As a background item or where the cent sign is now.

That's a great label. Simple, but attractive. Nice colors, nice name, everything. Don't change it a bit.

I it looks very nice. I would add a close-up of a portion of a penny as the background though.

Also, have you tried placing the cent mark centered in the triangular area behind the curve of the 2 and over the bottom leg. That would also look nice, IMO.

Its still a little bit of a work in progress, we have moved the ¢ to the bottom right area and it didn't look as nice. She ideally wants to rotate the ¢ so that its about 10 o clock instead of 12, but the line in this symbol is not perfectly vertical so shes going to draw one herself.

We have played around with pennies and even with an old 2 cent coin, but ended up going with a large piece of copper in the background.

I'm really happy with it and can't wait to see it on some bottles.

I didn't say it looked bad. Just giving you alternate ideas you may not have thought of yet...

Very fresh. Good contrast, proportion and it comes across well. Something about it though, is just sticking in my craw . Not sure what...gosh that's not much help lol. I think it is a great label.
