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

This is a damn good brew. Pours a copper/amber with a tall off-white head. Malty sweet aroma with a nice citrus hop backing. Taste starts with a quick fruit hint then gets a good caramel malt sense. The brew finishes with a nice floral/citrus hop finish, with a good bitterness that balances this beer out well. Very smooth and creamy brew.

Dark amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of malts, brown sugar, and maple. Malts, some light rasin, and maple all come through. Well balanced by some slightly spicy hops. Not bad.

ruby hued copper color with a fluffy yellow head. spicy licorice and malt aroma also has notes of butterscotch and vanilla. wow, nice solid malt, but unfortunately is one sided. this is a mild malt lovers dream. sweet caramel and toffee dominate with a sweet finish of more coppery caramel. this maltastic, but i prefer something with more of a balance. there is a bit of a hop presence as it warms, but they are only noticeable in the middle of the taste. this is a solid pale ale, but i just don’t see it as a strong ale. the alcohol is hidden nicely here.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 Copper color, heavy on the malts with little hoppiness. Hmm. Had an annoying salsa-like taste that I get from some Lagunitas brews. Not the biggest fan of this offering.

(Thanks to Drew for hookin’ me up with this bottle of bubonic-Kronik, yo!)Copper color with a soapy, foamy off-white head. Nice lacing. Malty sweet aroma with a touch of nuttiness and toasted malt. Flavors of sweet malts (graham cracker?) and maybe some brown sugar/ molasses with a dry, herbal hop thing going on. Finshes dry and earthy. Easy to drink a few of these in a session.

This is an interesting beer - the alcohol is obvious, but it blends into the flavor very well. Medium to strongly hopped, but not overpowering. Dark orange body, small head around the sides of the glass. Slightly sticky sweet aroma, but the flavor is pretty dry and ashy, actually. Decent, but not wonderful.

Reid (1898) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Ok served from the 12 oz brown short necked bottle. Nice chesnut brown coloured ale..with a good half inch pure white head..though it does not stick around and subsides quickly but still remains. Nice fresh aroma of slightly toasty malts and good hops Good tasteing beer..mainly very malty, slighly astringent ( like liquorice)some nice hops show up at the end of the sip and leave a nice after taste.Slight hint of alcohol detected but it works well. Nice and smooth on the palate..soft and easy drinking. Another nice beer from Lagunitas..they may not do fantastic beers , but they do good beers consistently.

SpringsLicker (3132) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 2, 2004
Deep Copper with a frothy white head that sticks to the glass. Sweet malt and caramel aroma with the freshness of a new mowed lawn to it. The aroma promised a beer just on the sweet side and this was a total surprise to find it just on the bitter side instead. Nice smooth palate with a bitter finish.

i wasn´t altogether too impressed with lagunitas, this was more fairly one-dimensional stuff from them. dark amber, sweet toffee and nut aroma, a little thin, quite bitter, i dunno, just didn´t grab me

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 12oz bottle. Dark murky rust colored. Large, clinging head of tanned lace surrounding the inside of the glass. Initially sweet apples and malts, then a big of a rough palate with flavors like tingling yeast, graham crackers, and bread crust. Some light spiced rum or brown sugar, perhaps. A light kick of alcohol near a sweet and mellow finish. A fairly good one, seems like you could dirnk a 6 pack a night and not be overwhelmed while still having a solid, semi-heavy beer.
