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

Pailhead (6377) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2006
Bottle: Lots of caramel and toffee in the aroma with a hint of citrus hops. Pours a cloudy reddish-orange with a moderate off-white head that diminishes quickly. Finishes has some very light citrus hops and a touch of roastiness. Decent beer, but a little too malt dominated and sweet. A tad more hops would probably go a long wall.

lamas (1548) - Washington DC, USA - APR 14, 2006
Bottle. Different label than that in the picture. A hazy copper/amber pour with a very thin tan head. Lots of malts, caramel and brown sugar in the aroma. Medium-bodied. Tastes like it smells - full of malts. Enough herbal hops to keep it from being too one-sided though. Lots of sweet caramel and some brown sugar present. Just a touch of warming alcohol in the slightly bitter and grainy finish. Solid and enjoyable.

One of the best copper ales I have ever had my lips on! The taste was outstanding alongwith the aromas....a classic with new world feel!

DuffMan (9283) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2006
Yeah, Im not getting any "kronik" aromas here either (i.e. nothing marijuanna-ish at all), so unless they are in some way referring to the higher alcohol content, Im not sure what they are getting at with the name. Just as I did with the pils, Im getting a weird olive vibe in the aroma, and after I get used to it, I can pick out some caramel. Quite a malty palate, a little on the sweet side. Decent.

Pours a dark red/copper color with the smell of olives. Sweet malty palate with a smooth finish.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 9, 2006
On tap at the Rogue Public House in San Francisco. Amber with a white head. Thick wall of lace. Theres not much here! Is this supposed to be a hemp ale? It certainly does not have any of the hemp flavor I have tasted in other such beers. Maybe a little bit of tea flavor. Mild hops. Boring.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 30, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2008 Sweet citrusy aroma with slight hoppiness. Pours an orangey-amber color. Fizzy carbonation with fairly thin body. Flavors of caramel, molasses, pear, orange, and very slight hoppiness. Not bad, not great. I also have no idea why this is called kronik...

dwedin (249) - Happy Valley, Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Sweet caramel mixed with citrusy hop aromas. Light tan head, clear reddish brown. Light body with a rich malty sweet flavor. Just enough bittering hops to balance the sweetness but with a dry finish.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6538) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2007 I am really starting to get into this brewer. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel color with a small tan head that fades. The aroma is sweet grapefruit and pine. The flavor is sweet and sugary with a strong grapefruity hop element and a caramel undertone. The finish is sweet and fruity. Yum.
