Originally named to celebrate the beginning of Mt. Carmel Brewing Company, our Celebration Ale has been refined and has earned a permanent name of Copper Ale. Hand crafted beer, copper in color entering with an aroma of fresh hops(cascade) coupled with a smooth big body balancing a complex hop finish.

Deep copper color with a light head and tiny bits of lace. The taste is big malt up front; it yields early to solid traditional hops, which dominate, but don’t take over completely. A good casual drink. Recommended.

Draft (from notes). Pours a coppery color with a medium sized creamy off white head. The aroma and flavor are pretty similar with caramel malts, floral and slightly herbal hops and a hint of vanilla. Mild to moderate level of bitterness with a slightly dry. This beer is medium bodied and smooth. Decent for a local amber.

Not bad. It was great in the gowlers, but the bottle are okay too. Not too much of a nose, sharp hop profile (not to strong), coppery color (duh), a bit watery and lacking on the malts.

Finally got a hold of the elusive Copper Ale of Mt. Carmel. Most of their other beers are pretty easy to find around Cincinnati, but I hadn’t found this one until I got it on draft at Mac’s Pizza Pub by the UC campus. Unsurprisingly, this pours a clear copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma of pale malts, floral hops, and caramel. Flavor is pretty similar, with some caramel, fresh floral hops, and some maltiness. Gentle bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Solid beer.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2008 Growler. Fresh malts with a distinct maple/caramel flavor. Additional hops might elevate the flavor profile. A good session beer with a unique taste, Cincy style.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2008 draft. Pours nice amber color with small off white head. Aroma is mostly malty and bready. Taste is similar, malty with some hops at the finish, reminds me of some of my own attempts at brewing, and some other home brews I have had in the past. Not bad, but f I had to choose one of their brews I would certainly choose their stout or brown ale.

Draft. Had this beer on draft a few time at Salem Gardens in CIncinnati. Good beer given the fact this is a small time operation as well as being a small batch local. Dark amber in color with a fair amount of malt. Decent amount of hops too, but the balance seemed a bit off. This beer was totaly different to me at the second half...due to temperature. As a homebrewer, I feel this could be easily replicated, but it’s still enjoyable and great to have in the home town. Overall, I’d call it an average attempt.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2007 12 oz draft-Great American Ball Park Cinncinati Ohio-Brown amber coloring with little to no head. Its fairly enjoyable but a little heavy for my liking for a ball park beer/ watching baseball on a hot summery day. The caramel flavoring really comes through leaving a slight bitter taste. Probably won’t get to have it again, but was worth the try, but wouldn’t drink it frequently.

Pours a clear dark amber with tan head. This beer is in fact creamy, but with a dry and bitter finish. It was pretty good but difficult to drink a lot of.
