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

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?

This has been one of the best beers from Lagunitas that I’ve had, lots of good malty flavor lightly hopped easy drinking.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Poured from bottle. Nice aroma of bread and honey. Appearance is copper with big lacing head. Tasting caramel, hops, pepper, molasses, banana, spice. Palate is actually a bit thin considering all the flavors. Overall, an interesting brew.

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
