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

baobubba (455) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - AUG 24, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2003 Amber with an off-white head. Aroma seems relatively balanced for a strong-ale. Resin/citrus hop aromas countered by roasted marshmallows. Semi-sweet with a fairly bitter finish, but it is refreshing. Very drinkable.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2005 Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (nuts, cookie), moderately hoppy (resin, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Hops aren’t the kind I like, and there’s just not much going on in the aroma otherwise. Ok brew, but I like the Hairy Eyeball much better.

Maybe this was a bad bottled but this was a abd beer. Looked nice but that was it. Smell and taste were too bitter. Couldn't finish this one.

PorterPounder (5195) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2009 Rerate Aroma is a bit on the musty side and the caramel flavor is ot quite as pronounced. Original 3.8 Has a slightly hoppy aroma with some faint floral notes. Attractive copper colored pour. Heavy lacing on an off-white sticky head. Has a slightly bitter flavor in a good way, with some mellow maltiness. Not sure what is going on with the rambling on label - sounds like a scene from Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure - here is a bit of it - "anyway, we were out to, uh, the, uh, you know thing and all" - maybe an inside joke? Anyway - a decent strong ale.

Clear brown and nose full of malt. Smels sweeter then it tastes. Slightly roasted. Hints of brown sugar. Interesting dryness despite the lack of hops.

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Copper in color extremely thick head, low carbonation. Rich malty, fruity and toasted grain aroma. I didn’t catch the tea aroma others noted. A full-mouthed beer, toasted grain and carmel fight with each other through some hop bitterness and bit of a yeast bite.

Poured a very nice copper color with a thick white head. Good Some spices and a fruity taste. Not much carbonation and very smooth. A very good beer from Lagunitas!!

Indra (2569) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 21, 2003
Herbal, floral, faintly toasty and sweet aroma with just a hint of doughy yeast and must. Light-medium orange-amber color, head that dwindles to nothing. Flavor is a little like a bitter or ESB...fruity, toasty, light caramel and hop spice and very lightly woodsy. Balanced rather nicely, very refreshing and quaffable, with low carbonation. Good stuff.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUN 14, 2003
Sweetness in aroma, caramel malts, vanilla and strawberry candy. Smooth and creamy on the palate, with a second half hop bitterness that just gets pushed back a little. On the sweeter side but well balanced.
