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

Lubiere (11237) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2005
Reddish copper ale with a collapsing white head, rich caramel aroma with wonderful floral hops, resinous, and orangey! Rich rich sweet vinous malt with the right balance of floral C-hops and smooth grapefruits in finish. Just light alcohol notes in beginning. Excellent. Bought in San Francisco, summer 2004.

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 (2237) - 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 (4901) - 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.

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 (2648) - 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!

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.
