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.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2009 Ooh, fortuitous selection for the evening, hundredth site rating for this brew, and my 30th Alt. Bottle. Grainy caramel malt with very strong earthy toffee overtones, a little dust and dry straw with brown sugar and stale air. Clear copper pour with a rocky, leggy tan head. Taste is very, very dry with sticky caramel malt, light bitterness, and mostly noble hops. Has that earthy Sam Adams grain-thing and a light splash of lemon. Touch of stale and sour, strongly hinting butterscotch but at least the thing isn’t a diacetyl bomb. Medium body and everything is adding up to a good session; there’s just enough going on here to enjoy.

DalzAle (2026) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Bottle received via trade with mwelsh13. Pour is a amber/straw color, with some carbonation. Aroma is caramel and malts. Flavor had some malt but nothing else really caught my attention. A decent beer that beats a macro any day.

ChainGangGuy (4809) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark copper body with a thin, off-white head. Splotchy lacing on the way down. Smell: Altogether meager aroma smelling faintly of grains, stale citrus, and one lone drop of caramel. Taste: Pale, grainy maltiness with no more than the vaguest hints of caramel and toast. Just a tad bit tangy. Very mild spicy, citrusy hops with a fairly restrained bitterness. Short, crisp finish that’s disturbingly devoid of flavor. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium, somewhat fizzy carbonation. Drinkability: You could cheer it on for being refreshing, but this is due to it being bland and watery, so there’s no need to break out the kazoos and colorful confetti just yet. Just as Shiner Bock does not exemplify the bock style it’s the same with Copperhead Ale -- it’s just not a very good altbier. More of an alt-alternative.

The aroma is loaded with caramel malt, toffee, spices, fruit, yeast, and there is also some grassy and citrus hops. The flavor is like the aroma with a very nice finish. The palate is smooth from carbonation. This is a pleasant surprise way more complex than expected. Overall nice.

Clear red-orange pour with absolutely no head. Fruity malt aroma with yeast. Fruit flavor, slightly sour with citrus and yeast. Good easy to drink beer.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - OCT 16, 2008
This was an odd little beer. Amber/coppery in color with a small white head. Sweet malt nose. Flavor is very cider-y: sweet and sour, musty fruit. Not what I expected at all. Not bad, but not something I’d buy again.

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty sweet with mostly caramel malts. Slight citrus hop and bready aroma as well. Flavor isn’t very strong. What’s there is caramel malts, earthiness, and a hint of hops but not much.
