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?

Bottle into pint glass, clear copper color with light tan head. Aroma of light caramel malt and lighter citrus/floral hops. Taste adds notes of nuttiness, toast and some earthy bitterness. Light-medium body, low carbonation, creamy with some light citrus bitterness. Pretty nice light flavorful amber ale.

Flaska bishops Gustav, Malmö - bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Jästfällning kvar i flaskan vilket är trevligt och gör ölet något grumligt.

Pours a nice reddish brown with a 2 finger tan head. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, and maybe some dark fruit. Low bitterness, flavor matches aroma. Very malty.
