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

Color is clear copper. Head is white as snow. Aroma is very malty with some flowery hops. Flavor is dominated by malt and alcohol. I like this, not something I've had before.

Copper color is very appealing as is the 7.7 percent. Has a decent flowerish feel to the aroma and the body is dominated by some thick ass malts. Not bad at all.

If you want a rich malty brew, I got one for you. Copper colored, slightly cloudy, small head. Fruity aroma with some floral hops. Favor is sweet and somewhat like a good ESB. Finish sweet also. Good Ale

what a yummy Ale. I was not aware of the 7.7 content until I started feeling fuzzy and warm. Nice end of the day beer. I now keep a 6-pak tucked away for guests. good stuff.

Clear copper (duh). Smallish white head. Very malty, crystal malt aroma. Flavor is big malty goodness. Very nice. Big body with a nice alcohol bite. I really like this one. Have not had one like this before.

Deep brownish-amber (aka copper - but that's too obvious) with a small nicely lacing head. Medium/full body, with sweet fruity malt backed up by a brace of floral hops. Having more or less ignored the labeling, I was totally unaware of the abv - in fact I would have called this a drinkable session brew that would be good to back up something more distinctive and stronger, but using this for a session could be dangerous. Overall quite good, and it comes in 12oz sixers too.

Pours a dark copper color, good amount of head that stays on the top of the beer. Label says only 29 IBU's, but tastes hoppier. Also, surprisingly high alcohol content at 7.7% ABV--doesn't taste it. Overall, a good basic ale. I'd buy it again.

For something claiming to be "Kronic" and sporting a picture of a clearly cheeched dog I thought this was a bit right smack dab in the middle of the beaten path. Nice and tasty hoppiness with an equally impressive maltiness, this is a pretty typical although tasty copper ale. I hope the title wasn't given in respect to the alchohol content (which was nicely concealed actually) because that is the least important aspect of the beer.

Pours a clear copper color, slightly floral aroma with hints of citrus. Flavor is a nice balance of malts with some good hop bitterness on the aftertaste. Nice ale.
