COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ishmael is our richly-flavored American copper ale. This American interpretation of the altbiers of Düsseldorf is brewed with continental Munich malt, American-grown hops, and a clean-fermenting ale yeast to produce a slightly sweet and malty beer balanced by a firm bitterness.

Bottle from Candia Road Convenience. Aroma is toasted bread, cereal, slightest hint of chocolate. Appearance is clear copper with good sparkle with creamy off-white less than finger width head with foamy lacing. Taste is balance of moderate sweet and bitter. Palate is medium bodied, lightly creamy with average carbonation--lightest buzz on the tip of the tongue and pretty abrupt finish with mild bitterness. Overall, above average beer with decent attributes but nothing that is spectacular or really stands out.

On tap at tasting room. Nice dark copper pour with solid white head. Citra hops come through with nice bitterness and dry finish. Malty sweetness up front. Grass on the finish. Interesting choice for a flagship.
