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.

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.

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.

Not much aroma, appearance is light, but flavor is ok, pleasent on the palate. I had this one at Where Pigs Fly in Dover De. I choose it over Coors, the only other choice on the menu was Bud which I avoid like the plague. This brew went fine with the slab of ribs at this nice Dover eatery. Next time I eat there I’ll order it again, inless the put a new beer on the menu.

Served at a concert. Not the best nor the worse beer ive had at such a venue. Light brown pour with a pretty thick white head. Nothing to say that this beer sticks out from any other..

Thanks to Adrian for a bottle of this Dover, Delaware micro. Rich, amber color with a full, malty aroma. There is a nice drawing of a peacock on the label. The taste is fully hopped, with a sharp bitterness coming thru most clearly. It is not as "balanced" as the label claims, in my opinion. The hops come out ahead, and if that is your pleasure, you will like this. It is dry and fizzy on the palate. It might go well with strong foods like chili or lamb.
