Has the potential to be a decent light ale - decent head. Metallic taste screws it all up though. Aftertaste makes me think that someone threw a handful of mothballs in with this beer. Another beer club disaster.

Smells sweet and nutty with some sulfur notes. Is a hazy amber with a minimal head. Tastes sweet and smokey with a metallic finish. Also, watery. Not so hot.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 This pours a nice clear copper color with only the slightest of heads. The aroma is mildly tasted malt with hints of hops. A creamy, slighty sweetish and fruity mouthfeel with a bit of hoppish tartness to the finish. This is a pretty decent American alt. I’d keep some in the ’fridge if it was on store shelves here.

On tap at the Rams Head Tavern. Poured a light amber color with a small head. Light hop and light malty aroma and tastes. Nothing special.

An average amber ale that is sweet and malty but somewhat boring. A good session ale to pair with a burger or pizza.

Another beer I knew nothing about when sampled. I thought it was an APA, there was no description of the beer on the bottle’s label. I’ll agree with the concensus here, Copperhead is a balanced session beer that would go well with pub food.

It is a warm amber. It looks appealing. It tastes like nothing. Not worth buying.
