COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale contains no actual copper but weíre pretty literal... It looked coppery, so we lamely called it a copper ale. Lotsía nice caramel malt though... Originally 5.9% alcohol by volume, currently

Pours an amber/copper color. Almond white thick head. Smells of bitter hops and sweet malt with a hint of spice. A good amber. Nice hop flavor, a bit of spice to go along. I like it.

Copper pour with a thing white head. Aroma is sweet with caramel and maybe some apple. Flavor is mild. Body is light. Caramel backbone dominates throughout. Finishes sweet.

This has an off-white colored head above a clear, very copper-colored body. Thereís actually quite a bit of junk floating in this with slow carbonation. The aroma is sweet and really enjoyable. I love the way Lagunitas beers smell... I think itís the sweetness. Thereís something sticky, beyond your average caramelized malts, in this beer - something that reminds me of brown sugar. The aroma is malty-sweet with some light hops and an almost fruit-like character. In the mouth itís light, a little fruity, with a fruitiness in the flavor that mellows nicely against the hop flavor and what seems like a very green, plant-like character thatís hard to pin-point. Itís light, sweet, very lively in the mouth. For a low-IBU beer I canít imagine anything better for the style. Itís low in bitterness, yes, but well-supported by a delicious hop flavor that balances out the residual sugars. Itís certainly very rich, and if copper were made of beer it would likely taste exactly like this. Itís lively and lightly sweet for a beer that looks so heavy in caramel sweetness. Itís incredibly sessionable, too.

Clean copper pour, decent ,quick head. Roasted malt in the nose. Bittersweet. Middle is caramel and fresh barley bread. Finish shows a subtle hop bitterness. Pretty balanced beer, definite session material.

Still a little more bitter than I would expect from an Amber ale. The aftertaste was a bit overpowering for me.

MunBro (223) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
Deep amber colour. Head is white and foamy. Tastes like that yucky copper feeling you get in the back of your mouth when you workout too hard. Not great.

TXBadger (1217) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Pours a very nice copper color, probably the closest to an actual copper color Iíve 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.

UXO (112) - CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
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 youíd 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.
