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

Pours a very nice copper color, probably the closest to an actual copper color I’ve seen in an amber ale with white head. Caramel malt on the nose with a little citrus; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more caramel malt.

Pours a clear medium amber with one finger of frothy head diminishing gradually to half that, moderate lacing. Nose is sweet caramel malt, bread and yeast, with only faint hops. Taste is hoppier than the nose suggests, but still dominated by a rich, earthy sweet malt. Medium-bodied, with moderate persistent carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. Not bad for an amber ale. I usually prefer hops to malt, but this makes for a nice change of pace. Not to mention, the hop bitterness does come through more in the flavour than you’d initially think based on the aroma. Quite pleasant.

Bottle: Pours orange-amber with a tall beige head... Clear and bubbly. Caramel, earthy scent. Taste is slightly bitter caramel malt, bark....a bit of metal. Pretty good.

Has a nice cooper color! Nice smell of malt, and sweet caramel. Nice complex mix of malt, caramel, milk, and bit of hopps. Has a bit of a bitter finish but not overpowering.
