Cask and Bottled Conditioned.
A premium dark red beer, based on the recipe used for the 150th celebration brew. Copper has a strong dry palate with an unusual ’old fasioned’ aftertaste. Copper is brewed with Maris Otter malt, flavoured with proportions of aromatic and brown malt, creating a highly distinctive character. Fuggles, challenger and Goldings whole hops are used, and the beer is both late hopped in the copper and dry hopped in the cask.

Sigmund (6779) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 9, 2014
500 ml bottle conditioned, from Voldby Købmandsgaard. ABV is 5.0%. Moderately gushing bottle. Copper colour, large to moderate off-white head. Earthy, woody and spicy aroma, also hints of blackcurrants. Fizzy mouthfeel. The flavour is quite dry, again with earthy and woody notes, and a spicy and hoppy medium bitter finish. Would buy again, and drink it fresher.

Holmen1 (4911) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2012
Flaske på The Globe i København: nydelig kobberfarge og tett, fint skum som varer. Deilig aroma av portvin og bringebær. Herlig, fyldig smak av bær og plommer/svisker og litt krydder i ettersmaken. Masse godsmak med bare 5%! Flaskemodnet, og det kjennes. Lekker.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2012
Bottled 07/07/12. More amber coloured than copper with a rocky white head and copious lace as it poured extremely aggressively. Yeasty and fruity. Notes of candy sugar. A decent body. Sweet fruits in the mouth. May not be entirely as intended but it’s quite tasty.

(50 cl bottle, bottle conditioned) Reddish brown color, slightly off-white head. Nutty, malty aroma with a touch of spices (a hint of lavender, maybe, and spruce) as well as spicy hops. Quite bitter taste, dry palate. Long and astringent finish. Good!
