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.

Mep3222 (1273) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Caramelized malty beer with a bitter hop finish. But more just dry, not piney. Malt dominates. Bit too bitter of a finish but not a bad beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thepatrickman (835) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 9, 2016
On draft in Portsmouth, NH. Nice, light altbier that’s dominated by the taste of medium-colored caramel malts and a clean yeast strain that I thought at first had to be a lager yeast. A bit malty and bready, but mostly light and refreshing.

At the source: pours copper with a white head. Aroma is caramel, German hops, and bread. Taste is somewhat bitter. Nice malty backbone. Nice aftertaste. Respectable.

This beer has a pleasant copper color and features a smooth if somewhat lackluster flavor. The carbonation is rather strong which tends to dilute the already mild tones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
