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

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?

Cette bière m’a pris par surprise car lors de mon dernier magasinage, j’ai baissé ma garde et ai acheté ceci en la prenant pour une pale ale bien amère et maltée comme savent si bien le faire les brasseurs de cette brasserie que j’adore. En effet, j’ai un grand amour pour cette brasserie qui brasse beaucoup de ces IPA et pale ale bien balancées, au corps rond et souple, qui allient à merveille le malt et le houblon le tout couronné par un long bouquet floral et résineux. Or je suis en présence d’un produit nouveau et inattendu! Une petite ale très agréable à boire, sans prétention et fidèle au style!

From a 12 oz bottle, pours a dark amber, with a big frothy light amber head. Aroma of caramel, toffee and toasty grains. Tastes of toffee, slightly malty. It’s a bit slick, nicely carbonated and just enough bitterness at the end. A real nice brew, very drinkable, I figure to keep this on the "buy again" list.

12 Oz bottle. Clear amber with a frothy light team head leaving a good lacing. Nice cereal grain aroma, hints of cinnamon and orange. Medium sweetness with lots of cereal grain flavor, transitions to a long herby hop linger. Medium-light body with a slick mouthfeel and average carbonation and some cloying sugars linger . Overall, nice for the style. Decent malt character and balance.

Bottle from Harvest Market Deep copper color rich caramel light sulfur. Big sweet caramel maltiness with little to counter. Needs more hops imho.

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours a luscious copper with a thin head. Aroma is quite rich with hints of nuts and even some bourbon. Carbonation is low with a medium body. Taste is like the aroma in the way it's very rich. It has some burnt toast, bourbon and some sweet malt character . Pretty decent stuff!

Amber colour. Some bubbly, white head, which disappears rather quickly. Heavy malt nose. Some caramel and herbs. Thick mouth feel. Mostly oily, with some grainyness. Quite low carbonation. Caramel, malt, tiny hint of citrus flavour. Feels quite thick and heavy.

rosenbergh (7756) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 5, 2015
12 oz bottle. At the Konttori, Tampere, Finland. Clear golden amber colour with a tiny off-white head. Sweet caramel, sugary sweetness, some sweet malt and mild hops in the aroma. Super sweet. The flavour is sugary sweetness, metallic notes, sweet malt and some mild hops. Not my favourite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
