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

Dark copper body. Sweet caramel aroma. Very smooth with delicious rich malt caramel like sweetness with some bitter hops. Body is beautifully smooth. A great beer.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Taken from notes made during a business trip to San Francisco: Pours a copper color with no head and sticky lace. Heavy malt aroma, sweet malt. Flavor is a bit bland and maybe sweet but it has a decent hop balance. Nice finish. Dry. A very drinkable ale.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Pours a copper/amberous color. Small white head. Aroma is malty and sweet. Flavor is hoppy with alcohol, cherries, citrus fruits, and malt. Palate is smooth and the overall effect is very nice. Thanks to Beerguy101 for this one

SDalkoholic (2206) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 21, 2005
Light aroma that is faintly hoppy. Thin fluff head, and tea like color. Not as big flavored as the hairy eyeball ale but certainly more hopped. Mainly a mild bitter hops flavor with some citrus and some malt character. Not bad but not good enough to be drank often.

presario (4811) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2005
Darker gold colour. 1"+ head. Interesting hop notes in the aroma. Rich malty body. A warm soothing session beer except for the higher alcohol. A weird flavour that I cannot identify seems quite prominent.

DYCSoccer17 (3446) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Bottle. Has very floral citrus hoppiness with lots and lots of oranges and mangoes in the nose. Slughtly piney aroma as well. Smells yummy. Mildly hazy copper.amber color with a decent fluffy manilla head. Well, I guess this is a malt bomb. Start is initally hoppy with more citrus hops. Finishes delightfully smooth with more maltiness with caramels, sticky sweet notes, and roasted notes. Perhaps a bit too sweet and a tad cloying. Still nicely done.

sloth (2600) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2005
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!

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2005 Rerate: toasty, grapefruit aroma; thin, creamy head, nice lacing; bready and toasty caramel flavor; creamy and silky, moderatly viscous palate and a tad dry in the finish; a little sweet, but very good.

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.
