Our Copperhead Ale is a copper colored German-style Altbier, with a light, malty sweetness and a pronounced hop flavor. Alt is the German word for old, referring to the older style of ale brewing. Altbier is Germany’s pale ale. Copperhead Ale is top-fermented, making it an ale and it has a medium body. It has hints of maltiness and hoppiness in its aroma, with a definite hop flavor and a medium hop bitterness. Altbier is predominately brewed in the northern part of Germany, especially Dusseldorf and gets its "sweet roast" flavor and copper color from caramunich malts.

Rune (9064) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2015
355ml bottle, 5 % abv, beer gift from Skinnyviking. Apricot coloured body, slightly hazy. Stable, tiny white head. Smell of dried fruits and toffee. Malt-fruity taste including caramel, bread, nuts, and herbal hops. Mid-dried fruity tail. Fair enough (shared with Finn at his place, Tromsø 12.05.2015).

Scotbrew (7) - - MAY 15, 2015 does not count
Not much going on the nose, some floral aroma. Taste is initially sweet, with some malt character in the background. Metallic and bitter aftertaste. Rather watery, not much to recommend going on here.

Jrwhitney6 (356) - - FEB 10, 2015
Beer of month club. Pours an ice tea color with thin film. Nose is a malt bomb. Taste starts out ok - some caramel - but then ends with some funkiness (best described as bad bitterness from hops, I guess). Not that good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TomTron (420) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Clear copper pour with not much head. Bready malts and some flowery hops in the nose. Taste falls flat. Not much going on, just some stale malts and a funky finish that isn’t much of a good thing. I’ve had much better.

Slightly hazy amber/red colour with a dense one-finger white head. Aromas of toffee, bread and some toasted malt. Toffee malt sweetness up front with dried fruits, brown sugar and earthiness. Medium body, gentle carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a lingering sweetness.
