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

Small tan head with scattered, spotty lacing. Lightly hazy, copper/orange hued ale. Grainy malt nose with a good hop presence, lightly grassy, lightly spicey. Medium body. Bready malts that are a medium sweetness. Lightly nutty, hints of caramel malt and a light hop flavor. Finish is almost dry, somewhat roasty. Thanks Secret Santa!

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2004
Hazy orange/copper body with a small, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is dominated by sweet, fruity malt with background notes of hops, alcohol, and yeast. Has a cheesy nose to it. Flavor is smooth and understated. If I didn’t see the 7.7 abv here I wouldn’t believe it. Palate is mostly malt but finishes with a nice dose of hops bitterness. Overall, This is a strong beer that I could see drinking straight from the bottle. I’ll give that a try sometime.

Bottle
Light bottle conditioning gives this a light misty orange color with an oily head and light lacing. Nose of rich fruity malts, toast, unboiled maple syrup, mint and a light chocolatey edge. Taste has a bitter edge but a medium bodied malty balance that crashes against the bitterness like a wave retaining wall, containing all of it; the bitterness holds strong. Dry strong finish with a well hidden abv level. Very nice to drink, very malty and tasty but the dry and bitter are too much to let go.

Copper color with a very smooth sweet flavor. Very easy drinking. Huge rediculous chunky head. Very attractive looking. Very very smooth at 7.7%

Not sure of the age of this as it was from a friend. Nice and malty and rich with hops rising through to end in a lovely finish. Simple and elegant at the same time. Not sure what the name had evoked, but this isn’t what I had expected. I enjoy Lagunitas and this is no exception.

Dark copper/mahogony color, nice tan head, clear. Malty, caramel nose with hints of piney hops, oranges, apricots. Medium sweet flavor,with bready malts, musty orange/apricot fruitiness, decent bitter kick. Creamy mouthfeel; very nice.

Dark amber brown color, small head. Yeasty hops nose. Medium bitter hops taste / dusty and dry. Somehow it tasted young.

egajdzis (5270) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2004
Poured a copper color with a medium sized off white sticky head and nice lacing on the glass. Sweet caramel and buttery malts, light citrus, and a strange vegetable aroma. Heavy on the caramel malts, light bitterness, fruity, sweet, buttery malt taste. Alcohol very well masked.

the warm orange of a jackolantern’s glow. along with some nuage to it’s peachy tobacco barn red, this brew is a very nice pour, dignified further with an ample collar of foam the color of stretched caramel. aroma has the autumny feel of hot sun on dry leaves, with orange zest, and pie crust. gorgeous flavor of sweet buttery malts-- with a bit of flour this could be baked into a fine breakfast pastry-- you could dip apples in this and caramelize them. orange pekoe with a half shot of smooth canadian whiskey. from that tea-like effect the hops emerge and drone on in a lingering grapefruit epilogue.
