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.

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

scoobyluv (504) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2004
i was extremely disappointed by this beer. it started pleasantly enough with a nice dark amber color with a nice copper head. however, the taste was dishwater bland. not objectionable but nothing to savor either

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 17, 2004
Pours a light copper, with no head. Aroma is minimal, but slightly malty. Thin and watery mouthfeel. Very little hops. Good beer for washing down Buffalo Wings or other bar food. Nothing spectacular.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Amber/copper, dense head. Nice buttery aroma. Very malty, toasty notes. Fairly dry. Not much hop, but that's not objectionable for an alt.

hopscotch (9047) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2003 Sparkling clear, copper ale with a small, creamy head. The aroma consists of subtle notes of carnival candied-corn and butter. Thin, watery flavor with fizzy carbonation. Well-balanced overall. Short, extremely dry finish.

Draft at the ESPNZone in Baltimore. Average beer. Nothing stood out. Tasted what it should be.

jgb9348 (4692) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 14, 2003
A good red colour to the beer, and a pretty decent smell. The taste was pretty average, not too strong nor weak, not too hoppy nor malty. Just an average 'red' ale, but worth trying if you can find it. I had this on tap at the Ramada Inn (BWI Location).

Aurelius (4106) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2003
A waterline brew, at best. Aroma is muted - slightly cidery, a little west coast hops. Thin mouthfeel. Citrus and pale malt, without much body or complexity. I'm not sure what makes this alt, but it doesn't taste like one to me. More of a mediocre PA.
