Could be a pholiota.

No bluing

Mild mushroom flavor with a metallic copper-like aftertaste. Pics taken on an iphone, and the colors aren’t showing up right. Too much blue pigment in the photo filter, giving it the appearance of bluing/greening on the cap margin(but its not).

Any chance it’s a Pholiota
