COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Smooth and drinkable with a slightly sweet malt. Reminds me a little of Kilkenny. But pretty unremarkable.

From a 12 oz bottle. Clear dark copper pour with a thick off white head. Indistinct aroma. Light flavors of toasted malt. Underwhelming.

AshtonMcCobb (2117) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 20, 2013
355ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours amber with a small head and gentle carbonation. The nose has honey and caramel. The taste has fudge, some malt and then a refreshing honey finish. The palate is medium bodied with a creamy finish and a slightly too sweet finish. For the style, this is a fairly good example of Alt but perhaps a bit sweet.
