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

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2005 on tap at the "Sweet Spot" bar in Santa Rosa, CA. Copper hue, thick tan head, minimal carbonation. considerable lacing. subtle mixture of aromas including grassy hops, citrus and sweet bread. tastes slightly bitter with a sour aftertaste. grass, grapefruit, alcohol and strong bouts of buttery toffee. medium bodied. smooth mouth-feel. pretty good but not as orally earth-shaking as some of the other Lagunistas can be.

Light aroma of malt and tea. Red copper body with an off-white head. Lacing clings to glass. Full flavor. Lots of malt up front with a weak tea finish. Also noted were hints of spice, citrus and florals.

Tmoney99 (11587) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle. Poured a dark amber with an average rocky off-white head that was lasting. Heavy hoppy sweet aroma. Medium body. Moderate bitter sweet flavor with a small bitter finish of medium duration. Bitter sweet hides alcohol. Good brew.

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.
