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

Jimthechap (1788) - Christchurch, - OCT 21, 2012
This is a lush red-amber coloured a with a good thick white head that appears to have had a think about hanging around and is slowly deciding against it. Aromas of good dessert malt: caramel, nectarine tart tatin, biscuits, golden syrup and toffee. All of this suggests that it smells sweet, but it isn’t that sweet. It is luscious though, like a busty winking redhead. Succumb to its charms and it rewards you with a lovely toffeeish kiss. It is like gorgeous roasty caramels on autumnal fruits. In other words, that busty redhead has drawn you aside and don’t make any plans for being clothed for an hour or so. Not the best analogy for beer consumption, but I qualify that by saying that this beer just demands your attention and a pint of this is never enough. It has all the elements of a sweet sessionable ale and if I can draw the comparison with a tryst with an auburn seductress, then I will... have... hmm. Yes. May I have another?

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

hawthorne00 (2541) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle, 10C. Clear pale amber with an inch of white head. Aroma of toffee with some earthy and spicy notes, vague citrus. Some peach and orange peel too. Sweetish and quite fruity with stone fruit and caramel, dryish finish with grapefruit creeping up a fair bit. Like a very strong bitter. Caught between three stools really: too strong to be sessionable; too hoppy to let any richness of the malt shine; too sweet for the hops to sing. But it’s OK.
