COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale contains no actual copper but we’re pretty literal... It looked coppery, so we lamely called it a copper ale. Lots’a nice caramel malt though... Originally 5.9% alcohol by volume, currently

Bottle. Nice, citrussy aroma with notes of marmalade and oranges. Thick, smooth texture in the mouth with caramel notes and more hops. A very quaffable and delicious brew.

Rich copper color with light off-white head. Touch of orange on the nose. Good malt up front with a nice balance of hops to finish. Clean and to the point.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Lagunitas is very hit and miss with me. Sometimes they overhop things and it makes me pissy. Sometimes they overmalt things and it makes me weak at the knees. This was an interesting beer. There were notes of cookies, molasses, loam, tea, peanuts, bread dough, and caramel. Displays nice malt complexity and a delicate balance of fresh, green, slightly spicy hops to keep it from getting cloying. Carbonation lifts the mouthfeel. I could have done without the citrus note on the aftertaste but I’ll make do.

TheBeerGod (5368) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2005
Bottle. Hazed copper body with a small off-white head. Aroma is citrusy with a hint of pine, light caramel, chewy malts, and pleasant hops. Hint of iced tea with lemon as well. Taste elicits more iced tea with lemon, light caramel, rich maltiness, mild hops and a hint of earthiness. Body is smooth and mildly carbonated with a medium overall feel. Well rounded. Finishes with spicy hops, light toffee, dried fruits, hints of tea, and citrus notes. Very nice beer.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Pours copper with a large off-white head. Aroma of sweet dark malts—toffee, caramel, tea leaf—and a great citrusy hoppiness. Malty and nutty flavor. The finish isn’t as hoppy as the aroma suggests; it’s slightly bitter and dry, the dominant flavor being tea. There is a slight metallic taste, without which this would be a world-class beer. Thick mouthfeel. Very good.

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2005
Pours copper coloured with a thick white diminishing head. Aroma from malt, wood and tar with some hints of lemontea. Malty in flavour as well with a pleasant acidity. Sweetish, slight caramelly finish. Thick mouthfeel. Low bitterness.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2005
Bottle @ Zum Biergarten, Cph. Aroma of light grapefruit from the hops, lightly malty. Hazy copper colored brew with a small off-white head. Malty nuttyness in the flavor, lightly spicy and quite earthy notes from the hops, light bitterness in the end.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Thanks to Darkelf for this one. Very good. Cloudy brown like a dunkelweizen, no head. Aroma of malt and herbal hops. Complex flavor; sweet malt with medium bodied, herbal hops. No alcohol in the flavor. Good.
