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.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 Draft pint at Green Leafe Cafe. Bronzed amber with virtually no head and only barley carbonated. Light stealthy aroma (not much of one at all). Crisp and tangy with an apple-like bite, underlying caramel and a finish that’s mysteriously empty of flavor. The tangy bite lingers. This even-keeled beer was good with my patty melt. (#3146, 10/19/2007) <<Re-rated from a bottle ... much better body, decent head, and a good mouthfeel. Confirms that Green Leafe can serve old beer.>>

BOD 4/3/15. Pours a clear copper. Normal head volume, lacing and retention. Very light nose of biscuit with a hint of caramel and toasted grain. Light body with a texture slightly heavier than water. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescent middle and a finely bubbled prickly finish. The flavor profile is rather weak. You get some toasted grain, very little biscuit and a mere hint of caramel. The middle has a mild bitterness. The finish is a slow bitter fade.

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 (9500) - 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.

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.
