COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale contains no actual copper but weíre pretty literal... It looked coppery, so we lamely called it a copper ale. Lotsía nice caramel malt though... Originally 5.9% alcohol by volume, currently

Honeysuckle sweet smell. Malty rich taste, but a smooth drinking beer. Looks like a brown ale.Hoppy aftertaste.

Pours a deep amber color. A sweet, floral, fruity, and strongly hoppy aroma. Hoppy flavor with a malty finish. Very smooth. Alcohol is very well hidden. I could see this stuff sneaking up on you. Lots of different flavor going on. Pretty good stuff. Feels light on the carbonation, almost too little.

Rich copper color, starts out malty caramel then a bunch of citrus hops come out to play, bitter finish lingers. Nice, thanks Drew.

My lord, this is a scary ass tasty beer. I am stunned that the ratings are not higher because it is awesome!!! Pours a beautiful copper color. Rich malty aroma with an orange twang. Lightly sweet malty flavor with some grainy edginess and citric hops to balance. Rich and full body. You would never guess the alcohol contentÖno wonder they call it the Kronic. Fabulous!

[draught] An odd ale indeed - red colorwith tiny head - aroma is mildly tart, with a little hint of hops, not really doing justice to the maltiness in the flavor - as others have noted, there is a surprising bitterness to this, that works shockingly well with the malty flavors of brown sugar (caramelized?), raisins, dough - bitter/tart finish -interesting.

copper..thatís a decent color description..head is average initially, mostly dissipating though. lots of caramel malts, but a good hop presence as well, albeit taking the back seat in this beer. also notes of burned sugar. flavor has a surprising bitterness, but with strong cookie dough and caramel maltiness, this may be the first beer where i actually think i might understand the cookie dough effect..but it may be something else. finish is quite hoppy and bitter and loooong! very good. thanks drunkasaskunk!

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Nice amber color with a thick head that laced very nicely...sweet nose with a little apparent alcohol (the only place I noticed it)...malty palate, not overly sweet...a hoppy bite when you push your tongue up to swallow...Hairy Eyeball was my favorite Lagunitas brew, but now I have a little rethinking to do...

TChrome (1425) - Bedford, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Copper colored brew with an excellent tan colored head that is very well retained. Rich grapefruit aroma with a bit of alcohol and some sweet malt. Interesting flavor with strong malt sweetness and a ligt shot of grapefruit juice in the finish. Reminds me a bit of a strong English ale, ala Fullers.

A good looking clear amber colored beer. Malt and sweet caramel aromas dominate in the nose. Medium bodied with smooth malt, caramel, and maple syrup flavors. I didnít realize the abv was so high, itís well hidden behind the strong malt presence. Simply a nice malt experience.

A nice malt balances the hops on this one - Iíd say that the commercial description of "malt domination" is about as true as this statement gets for a California brew. Itís a sweetish malt, and completely overrules any alcohol taste from the surprising 7.7%. A nice looking beer as well, the huge head quickly dissipates but never leaves, and an attractive lace remains on the mug. For some reason this one strikes me as being a great on to get on tap, Iíll have to get over there one day.
