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.

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.
