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 ruby hue with a pillowy cream colored head. Lots of caramel malt backbone with aromatic hops that accentuate the malt nicely.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler glass on 12.23.13. A: See through amber with a small receding head. S: Caramel, very malty. Sweet. Fantastic! T: Follows nose. Caramel, but also has citrus and flowery hops on the back end. M: Somewhat crisp. O: Citrusy and floral hops in an amber may not be the norm, but Lagunitas makes it work. The hops don’t take away from the caramel flavor, but complement it.

Beautiful copper red ale with thin foam on top. Sweet on palate, malty, not overly hoppy. Very pleasant...

Bottle sample. Thanks Tom L. Clear light copper with small off-white head. Aroma of prune, date honey, syrupy, raisin, faint hops notes, yeasty and fruity. Sweet flavor, prune, raisin, yeasty, a bit hoppy, date honey, some fruitiness and light sourness. Light carbonation, medium-bodied.

Clear amber with a sticky thin white head. Lovely nose with nutty caramel and sticky leafy hops. The flavor was the same, quite nutty and almondy with caramalt and balancing bitterness, light hoppy grassy flavorness. All around great amber.

Maxbier (650) - Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Clear dark copper amber color with light tan head. Sweet malty caramel aroma. Slightly creamy mouthfeel followed by medium body caramel malt and citrus type bitter. I would guess a decent amount of early boil hopping and very little late. Nice drinkable ale but too boozy to be sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Total Wine. True to the label is pours a lovely copper color. Small white head the dissipates quickly. Not much by way of aroma, but is had lots of flavors on the tongue, though they don't quote balance. It is sweet, then malty with an earthy finish.

From a mystery twelve pack, but it had three bottles of four different beers. Ha! Hoppy amber ale and nothing more
