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

Thanks to DrunkAsASkunk for this one. Wow, if I keep getting these awesome California brews in the mail I may just apply to be Johnny Carson’s waterboy or something. This one poured deep copper with a medium, frothy white head and lacing. Aroma of malt, fruit, cabernet, caramel, brown sugar, and toffee. Tasted malty, fruity, with hints of cabernet, caramel, cabernet, brown sugar, and toffee. Finishes smooth, with a final blast of malt, toffee, and dry red wine. Very nice.

hopscotch (8540) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2004
Sparkling clear, cooper ale with a small, white, creamy head. Very rich, malty aroma with notes of light molasses, clover honey and a little alcohol. The flavor pretty much matches the aroma. Well-bittered for balance. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Medium-length, bitter finish. Me likes!

Goblincat (379) - Westland, Michigan, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Pours orange-red color with fluffy white head and heavy lacing. Nose is strong with hops and more hops. Smooth taste with a start of hops that dies off and finishes with a touch of sweetness. Interesting. Thanks for the trade, Darkelf.

hayduke (3159) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 28, 2004
Bottle. Very attractive rich copper color. Light brown head and lots of bubbles. A nice aroma greets you. Somewhat on the sweet side with obvious hops and malts. White nothing in particular stood out, somehow this turned out to bel a good robust ale with excellent overall balance, and one I would gladly drink again.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2004
Dark copper with a frothy beige head. Aroma is sweet and malty with a hint of hops. Body was robust. The flavor was rich and flavorful and rewarding. Hints of caramel and even some chocolate malted balls. Very good stuff.

bb (6697) - Alamo, California, USA - JUN 10, 2004
Bottle. Rich amber colored ale with a light beige head. Aroma of pine tar and a bit of grapefruit. Smooth pine tar flavor with some sweetness. Easy to drink and well balanced. There’s a lingering bitterness, but part way through the bottle it just ends. Hides alcohol - would not have guessed it was 7.7

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Brassy body and tight velvety head. Piney nose plus some candied malts underneath. Flavor includes caramel, cloves, pine and a touch of kerosene. Slick feel, almost like liquor.

MrRomero (1972) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Poured a clear amber with a thin dissipating off white head. Caramel aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet with a nice balance of malt and hops. Light alcohol finish. Decent but a little thin.

Terminus (3146) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUN 5, 2004
12 oz bottle-copper hue (well, the name says it!) with minimal white head. subtle aroma of earthy malts with a touch of spice. Slightly thin body for a 7.7 brew. lots of buttery malts on the flavors-earthy hop finish. This is a unique ASA, more like an ESA. I was expecting a hop monster, but i was very suprised by this one.

12oz bottle. 05.25.04 Dark amber, med head, no lace...ok, some lace. Odd, toasted wheat bread aroma. Some metal? Must be the copper. Soft and sweet like tea with sugar. Nice, quick finish. Tingles briefly with hops at the end.
