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.

Came from Beer of the Month (or something like). Opportunity to try beer from the east. The west rules, excepting Dogfish Head of course. This beer was thin with little hoppiness. Nice red tint and pleasant caramel (although subtle) aroma.

12 Oz. Bottle. Copper, hazy with a little white head. Aroma is bread and malts, not too strong. Taste is not hoopy at all, quite sweet, lots of caramel notes (Insert McKayla Maroney’s unimpressed face here).

Light haze on this amber beer, little white head. Light semi crisp palate. Minerals dominate. Mild malt with a whisper of caramel. Super mild hop - vague orange. Semi dry finish. Inoffensive but dull.

Grzesiek79 (3109) - Radom, POLAND - DEC 11, 2012
Dobre ale trochę za jasne jak na amber ale. Piana mocna i gruboziarnista, ale szybko niestety znika, w smaku gorzkawo wytrawne. W sam raz smak ten dopasowuje się do potraw.
