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.

Malty aroma with caramel and a little dark fruit. Flavor starts sweet and nutty, with a little grassy and citrus bitterness in the finish. Nice beer--tasty and drinkable

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark copper with a thin off white head. Bready malty aroma. Good balance of sweet and bitter and good body. There’s nothing that stands out on this one but it is a nice medium beer, not too heavy and not to light.

On tap at the Book & Bar, Portsmouth, NH. Amber with a ring of white head; faint malt aroma; creamy caramel malt taste. This certainly didn’t remind me of Düsseldorf.

Reviewed from notes. Consumed 1/06/12. The appearance has a copper brown colored body with a small tan lumpy head with a speckled lacing. The smell has a light sort of mild malts and hops with a light cooked apples and an added sort of bread/biscuitiness. The taste is basically sweet through the previously mentioned flavors. On the palate, its mostly on a medium sort of body with a nice sessionable sort of quality to it. There is a decent light harshness on the tongue, no aftertaste or finish. Overall, this is good for the style and good for me.

Meghan and Dan supplied the 650mL bottle—many thanks! To English-sized pint glass, it pours a coppery amber brownish tone with which a snowy white head 1 finger in length stood. Smells and tastes of tin, caramelized onions, denim, and Bible paper. I’d say, "an occasional hits the spot" beer. I don’t see myself drinking another one of these. Not terrible, but also not worth good money.

on draft at brewery, this one a a little grainy and plain. oh well its the flagship for the masses so i assume this is necessary.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked Batch 131-Born March 2013. The pour is a slightly cloudy amber brown with a lingering cream colored and soft head. The aroma is bready and malted. The body is medium. The taste has a forward roasted malt character and an earthy hop bitterness pulling up the backside. Decently done but nothing spectacular.
