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.

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.

4.7%ABV. Amber Ale. This was my 2nd tap in a Rams Head Tavern and it was anything but sophomoric. It tapped out at a deep amber color 8-10ºSRM with a respectable head of foamy white bubbles. Nose is full bodied and whispered well-roasted quality malts. The palate had light carbonation giving it a light mouthfeel which was clean and light without being watery. Aroma and flavor was just mainly about the full bodied toasted malt flavor hinting at dark toast and toasted vanilla granola oatmeal. Nice finish of clean bitter hops. Goes on Favorites List

Rune (9319) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2015
355ml bottle, 5 % abv, beer gift from Skinnyviking. Apricot coloured body, slightly hazy. Stable, tiny white head. Smell of dried fruits and toffee. Malt-fruity taste including caramel, bread, nuts, and herbal hops. Mid-dried fruity tail. Fair enough (shared with Finn at his place, Tromsø 12.05.2015).

Not much going on the nose, some floral aroma. Taste is initially sweet, with some malt character in the background. Metallic and bitter aftertaste. Rather watery, not much to recommend going on here.
