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.

Braudog (5645) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2007
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.>>

Bamsen78 (3105) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
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.

Clear light copper, offwhite head. Malty, bready aroma, some light caramel. Flavour is rather light, caramel, malty. And that’s about it...

AdiBeer (1026) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Aroma: iron, light notes of malt, but the iron really dominates. Appearance: hazy amber, big frothy white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: malty notes, bread, cereals, grain, light sweets, yet the bitters are more dominant, lively carbonation. Overall: OK Amber Ale, fails to play in the top league. Bottle from OddBins, Pimlico.
