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

A: Carmel colored... I guess you could say "copper" in color, very small cream colored head that lasts only for a couple of minutes resulting in a little bit of lacing on my glass. S: Sweet caramel malt. A hint of pine hops but, mainly carmel malt though. T: Sweet carmel malt gives way to a slight pine finish. A sweetness comes back at the aftertaste. Pretty well balanced... M/D: Light to medium body as expected... Not very carbonated...almost seems a bit flat. Not my favorite Lagunita’s brew, but palatable. Serving type: bottle

piney and sugary qualities in the nose also dark fruit a hint of smoke..orage amber color clear with a thin white head that leaves lacing..tastes piney and resiny too with honey sweetness to balance as if lagunitas has attempted an east coast IPA..went down easy tingly and slightly sticky on the tongue overall its a nice red ale love the honey and the IPA character as well

jsporrer (416) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Pours a dirty copper with an off white head and some lacing. Light carbonation. Plenty of sediment suspended in the pour. Aroma is sharp with notes of bitter citrus rind and a hint of caramel. Flavor is mostly bitter and stays on the roof of your mouth. Fairly smooth finish with lingering bitterness. Not very refreshing. Not that bad but not great. Not my favorite style.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a copper color with a large white head. The aroma is malt and sugary sweetness with fruit. The taste is very fruity with caramel malt. A very nice beer.

Wheat honey smells along with some copper tinge in the backdrop. Beautiful copper color. Flavor is Malti sweet at first followed up by a super Rind bitterness. Medium body light carbonation. More red ale then a copper ale.

This was not my favorite of their beers but it was certainly drinkable. I expected more of an Amber taste but it was a bit "off " of that, perhaps why it is more aptly described as copper. It is a bit bitter which is why I think I did not care as much for it as some other similar beers that have a caramel taste.

July 4th, 2012 - Happy 4th of July! Well, belatedly. This is a year and a half old review, but better late than never, right? Lagunitas’ rich copper ale is a rich, shaggy, late red ale, with tons of sweet apple skin scenes and a nice chalkiness, The flavor is equally rich and fruity with light strawberry and mango. The flavor is malty in depth and breadth, with much of the husk and sweetness of a good loaf of friend, and with a yeastiness I am beginning to recognize across Lagunitas’ beers. It fills the mouth and palate, and stands by itself, independent and stalwart. This is an ale that demands isolation, and focus, with its richness and palate domination.
