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.

Draft: Pungent aroma of vinegar and gym socks, with walnut notes. Clear amber with a thick tan head. Walnut and gym sock flavor.Creamy mouthfeel with vanilla and black pepper left on the palate. Alcohol is very evident, almost to an obnoxious extent for the style. Pretty poorly produced.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange amber withsmall off-white head. Clear aroma of hops and malt, with notes of citrus and touches of metal. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with notes of nuts, metal, and roast. Touches of fruit. Lingering, rather rough aftertaste, with metallic hints. Drinkable but nothing really special. Still, better than expected.
