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.

Poured from the bttle to a hazy rust color with thin off-white head that disappeared immediately and left no lacing. Initial aroma was somewhat impressive: honey, malted dark fruits and a hint of apples. Unfortunately, this quickly gave way to a mouthfeel that was thin and watery, and a semi-tart taste. Finish was watery and metallic, with an almost rusty aftertaste. Not a real fan of this one.

12oz bottle from Pizz5116. Pours a clear golden copper color with a finger of foamy off white head. Aroma of Amber malts, wet dog, and hints of earth and nuts. Taste of toasted Amber malts, earthy bitterness, yeast, metallic, and some sour lemon zest in the finish.

Beer of month club. Pours an ice tea color with thin film. Nose is a malt bomb. Taste starts out ok - some caramel - but then ends with some funkiness (best described as bad bitterness from hops, I guess). Not that good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TomTron (417) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Clear copper pour with not much head. Bready malts and some flowery hops in the nose. Taste falls flat. Not much going on, just some stale malts and a funky finish that isn’t much of a good thing. I’ve had much better.

Slightly hazy amber/red colour with a dense one-finger white head. Aromas of toffee, bread and some toasted malt. Toffee malt sweetness up front with dried fruits, brown sugar and earthiness. Medium body, gentle carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a lingering sweetness.

Bottle from Wholefoods, Kensington. Pours rusty orange/copper, off white head. Nose is caramel, sweetish, grainy bread malt. On the sweet side. Taste is caramel, bread and grain malt, bit of an astringent hop, sugary, malty. Not a fan of this.

Kauge (563) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Mai 2014, Odd Bins Chiswickis (£ 2,50), 355 ml. Valades ilusat vasekarva ja klaar, vahtu peaaegu polegi, pitsi ei jäta. Aroom on esmajoones linnaseline, karameljalt magus, metalne; soojenedes omandab (vees) vettinud maisihelbeid, lahjat kaerahelbeputru ja pappi meenutava buketi. Kehalt keskmik, paraja või pigem tugeva karbonisatsiooniga; suht igav hapukalt linnaseline maitse, mis järelmekis tundub lausa leivane ja kah hapukas. Mõrksust on vaid pisut tunda, pigem domineerib linnaseline poolmagusus ja lõhnaga sarnane prickly metalsus, eriti järelmaitses, õige pisut magus. Kuiv suutunne. Päris halb pole, aga paras pettumus siiski.
