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

Bottle bought in Amherst, MA. I remember kicking myself for not trying more of Lagunitas’ beers after visiting the brewery in 2003. Pours a deep amber color with a thick head. Smooth mouthfeel and a nice malty taste. I like this a lot.

KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Smells like beer pee. Thin foam on top and an reddish color. Despite the smell, this tastes good. LIke beer is supposed to taste like. I think I could drink a lot of this.

JakeBrake (14) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Another winner from Lagunitas, who have nailed the rich, high ABV style better than most. True to its name, has a character balanced between red and brown ale. Rich, sweet, and swampy but with enough hops to rescue it from overmalty blandness. Smooth palate, easy drinking, and the alcohol is well disguised.

jimhilt (2421) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours a cream, one finger-head that goes slowly leaving a decent lace. Nice clear amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is slightly hoppy. Starts with a mix of hops and malt, finish has a hoppy/soapy edge. Some bitter aftertaste but not bad. $1.60 for a 12oz from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2005
Bottled. Lagunitas Copper Ale. Copper colour. Candy(tidbits), caramel and butter in aroma. Flavour is buttery, caramelly with a light roasty touch. Rich malty. Would never had guess it’s 7,7.

skisangelo (60) - Collingswood, New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2005
Pours a beautiful copper color. Rich malty aroma with an orange twang. Lightly sweet malty flavor with some grainy edginess. Rich and full body. You would never guess the alcohol content.

hopdog (9059) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2005
Poured a medium copper color with a smaller sized off white head. Tiny and thin particles. Aromas of caramel, sweet malts and light citrus. Tastes of caramel, citrus, fruits and toffee. On the sweeter side. Smooth body.

swirl (267) - collingswood, New Jersey, USA - APR 19, 2005
Poured a copper color with little head. Features that strong heavy hops aroma that seems characteristic of West Coast beers. However, there seems to be a somewhat buttery presence to the aroma as well. The flavor displays the hops you’d expect but also offers a lot of vanilla as well. Definately a tasty beer worth trying.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - APR 13, 2005
Copper colored with a bit of head. Malt aroma with some hops. Body is well balanced between malt and hops, with a slight malt predominance. If it were a little less sweet it would be better I think.
