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

Copper-orange like molten iron, with a pillowy head and floaty bits in the glass. Aroma is pure malt with notes of musky hop. Flavors of bready malt, light honey, grapefruit and tangy grassy bitterness. Finishes almost tart, fruity and mildly bitter. Very smooth and remarkably light in body- If I were tasting this blind, I would guess it to be a very nice mild ale.

Bottle. Poured dark amber and clear with a small white head that diminished rapidly. Rich malty nose with some grapefruit and honey. Flavor is caramel malts, with a nice balancing of hops. Medium body and little carbonation. Nice amber ale from Lagunitas.

Poured a red, oaky brown. Smelled mellow and, slightly hoppy. The flavor was lightly hoppy and layered. But I couldn't really tell what the layers were. Slightly musky. Bitter leave.

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.

JCW (1275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2003
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.
