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

Bottled. Clear orange coloured with a small off white head. Sweet aroma of caramel and malts with notes of hops, pine needles and spices. Flavour of malts, caramel, hops, herbs and pine needles.

Crockett (1010) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2005
Pours copper with a short tawny head. Sweet raisins and piles of cereal and ample malts. Hops are plain. Drinkable but not a memorable beer.

Padron4KM (550) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - SEP 30, 2005
12 oz bottle.
Pours out clear dark copper color with a thick fluffy head.
Nice lacing.
Aroma is caramel, some bready aromas and some light hops.
Body is kind of thin
Flavor is lightly sweeet, with some caramel flavors finished of with some piney/resinous hops.
Good enough to drink more than one, but I wouldn’t go out searching for one.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - SEP 24, 2005
Bottle poured a nice dark read amber with a thick heavy white head and sticky lacing. Crisp malt and hops aroma with a nice hops, citrus and hop flavor. Alcohol is well hidden and makes for a great refreshing beer.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - SEP 22, 2005
Bottle, pre-Rita. Pours a thick and inviting orange. Aroma is spikey, with the hops jabbing into your nose like a steak knife. Flavor is citrusy, rounded out by sour hops. I’m detecting a bit of malt, but it’s so well hidden (like the alcohol) that unless you’re looking for it, you won’t findi it. A fine beer. I’d have another.

GregClow (2910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
Draught sample at O’Brien’s, San Diego. Tea-like amber colour. Aroma is milder than expected, but quite fresh, with leafy hops and caramel malts. Flavour has similar characteristics, and is quite well balanced. Really hides that 7.7% - good thing I only had a small sample, as it went down very quickly.

EKGoldings (540) - Radford, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2007 Superb beer hides its alcohol behind a smooth and polished flavor. Excellent balance between hop aroma, bitterness, malt and sweetness. Really an excellent session beer, although at 7.7 you better sip slowly ... I wish I could get this on tap. Well, they dropped the alcohol content on this from 7.7 to 5.9. Nowhere near as tasty a beer now .. rerate for current recipe :-(.

Pretty cooper coloring, nice head. Caramely malt, Strong but smooth enough that you could keeping drinking these all night, althouhg you shouldn’t need more than one.
