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

Pours a clear deep amber with frothy off-white head. Nose is bold and malty sweet with hints of caramel and spicey hops. Flavor is crisp and sweet with fruity notes and just enough hops to clean you out for the next swallow.

12 oz. bottle. The perfect, expected copper color with very little head. Malty aromas were great. Lots of caramel, and dark fruit. Malty flavors too. But the hops came through and added a touch of bitter. Pretty good stuff

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 4, 2006
12 oz bottle from Julios in Westboro, MA (February 2005), cellar temperature in a Corsendonk Christmas Ale glass. Hazy amber-bronze, just beautiful and metallic in the glass, with a lasting dollop of off-white fine-bubbled head....pungent nose, woody and lightly farmy, wet green hops and dried mushrooms, nice but not distinct or potent enough....the tongue is not excited by the lightly bitter, fairly dry woody-twiggy character throughout, touches of citrus and dessicated caramel notwithstanding....some saving graces provided by a sweet, thick nutty note towards the finish....carbonation low to moderate, mouthfeel rather flat....ummm, all right but I probably won’t try it again.

Nice copper body with a slight off kilter head. Nice hops in the aroma. Decent fruity nose and taste with a nice bitter finish.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - FEB 15, 2006
Handpump. Hoppy aromas, copper color and a nice head. Flavors of fruit and hops. The body is not as bold as I would have liked, it is somewhat on the watery side.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2006
Pours a hazy orange brown color with very minimal amounts of wispy white head. Aroma is very citrus oriented, with some earthy woody undertones and a strong sugared grapefruit essence. Flavor not what i expected, extremely sweet and malty, slight sweet fruit flavor with a light watery mouthfeel. Overall, enjoyable but not stupendous.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2006
12 oz bottle. Amber pour with a light head, only complaint is that it needs some carbonation. Creamy, lightly sweet, malt aroma. Hints of sharpness as it warms. Flavors of light flat root beer, sweet malt, wood, minimal hops in the body (balance only really) but a lightly bitter finish. Medium body and mouth feel. Better cold. I’ve got to say that I liked this in a general way, but I was disappointed to see that it was an American Strong Ale. I rather thought it was a good amber ale. Oh well..

CapFlu (5066) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2006
(Bottle) Purchased at Beers of the World in Rochester, NY. Pours a creamy tan head with a clouded reddish-amber body. Nose of cask whiskey, machine oil and hops. Flavour of very orange and lemon strong ale. Very bitter and nice alcohol warming. Very enjoyable!

Dogbrick (10870) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2006
I have to admit I spent some time trying to figure out what the word was behind the black bar. Dark copper color with a thick light orange/beige head. Thin lacing. Aroma of strong malt and subtle fruit. Medium-bodied and balanced nicely between sweet malt and citrus fruit. Light touch of pine as well. The finish is mildly bitter and lasting. Above average.

bu11zeye (12576) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy burnt orange body with an average-sized off-white head. Aroma of malt, toffee, and citrus. Flavor of malt, carmel, citrus, and raisins.
