GirlyBeer (190) - Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA - JAN 14, 2011
More of a golden color than copper. No head, nice lacing. I have a cold so I have no idea how it smells. Light grain flavor with caramel. Smooth finish with a roastyness that lingers on the toungue. Overall, a great German Style Alt beer.

DavoleBomb (1513) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Poured into a pint glass. 3.25 A: Moderately hazed copper color. Not even one finger of head formed. 3.5 S: Big toastiness. Nuttiness to a lesser extent. Fairly dry, but sweet enough to be balanced. 3.75 T: Tastes like the nose. Toasty, nutty, grainy maltiness. Moderately dry with a touch of yeast. 4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Nice creaminess in this. 3.75 D: Not a whole lot going on, but it is tasty.

tfontana (64) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle from Candia Road Convenience Store. Aroma is mix of bready malt and yeast. Appearance is gorgeous clear copper color (go figure) with beautiful sparkling, one finger frothy white head that dissipates to ring and foamy lacing. Taste is weak and has nothing up front but lightly sweet back end. Palate is light and thin with nice light carbonation on the tongue. Finish is inconsequential. Overall, Iím not sure youíre going to find a nicer beer to look at. But, itís almost like OCB put all their eggs in this basket and forgot about the other attributes. Not much to recommend it otherwise.

12oz bottle, from variety pack, poured into 16oz tulip glass

Aroma: Caramel, toffee, sweet, malty, floral hops

Appearance: Amber color, hazy, off white head

Taste: Sweet with a little bitterness

Palate: Medium body, dry finish

Overall: Slightly sweet with some bitterness. Very clean lager. Slight floral aroma. Nice balance with hops and malts. Nice dry finish.

Same style and very, very similar taste to Long Trail Ale. Between this or LT Ale, I think I enjoy LT Ale by a little. I probably couldnít pick out each beer from each other in a blind taste test.

I think Altbiers like this and Long Trail Ale are great beer-beers. Nothing crazy, nothing too intense, good balance and great tasting. I donít drink a lot of Altbiers, except for LT Ale and OC Copper, but these are solid beer.

bennetporter (231) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Pours from a bottle a dark amber. Aroma is some floral hops, a little dark wheat. Flavor is a nice sweet maltiness, with some whole wheat toast flavor and a pleasant bitterness. A good beer.

Voodoo (412) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2014
From a variety pack.....pours a copper color, surprise, with a medium white head which lingers a bit.....aroma is a bit fruity, earthy......taste is earthy, astringent bitterness, light mouthfeel, disappears quickly off the palette with a bit of a metallic end.

60minuteman (993) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle from variety pack. Aroma of toasted caramel malt, corn, barley, molasses. Flavor is slightly metallic and heavy on the earthy malt and hop. Strange bitterness to it. Itís a bit unpleasant but decent flavor notes.

pottygok (522) - Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Aroma: Bready malt aromas with hints of yeast and cooked vegetables. A bit off putting. Appearance: Clear copper color with no head. Taste: Light sweetness with a light sourness in the finish. Palate: Light body, slick oily texture, soft carbonation, long dry finish. Overall: Meh...pretty disappointing. Thereís a lot out there thatís better, and I couldnít see any purpose in seeking this one out.
