COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Copperhead Ale is a copper colored German-style Altbier, with a light, malty sweetness and a pronounced hop flavor. Alt is the German word for old, referring to the older style of ale brewing. Altbier is Germanys pale ale. Copperhead Ale is top-fermented, making it an ale and it has a medium body. It has hints of maltiness and hoppiness in its aroma, with a definite hop flavor and a medium hop bitterness. Altbier is predominately brewed in the northern part of Germany, especially Dusseldorf and gets its "sweet roast" flavor and copper color from caramunich malts.

Bottle from Wholefoods, Kensington. Pours rusty orange/copper, off white head. Nose is caramel, sweetish, grainy bread malt. On the sweet side. Taste is caramel, bread and grain malt, bit of an astringent hop, sugary, malty. Not a fan of this.

Kauge (1879) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Mai 2014, Odd Bins Chiswickis ( 2,50), 355 ml. Valades ilusat vasekarva ja klaar, vahtu peaaegu polegi, pitsi ei jta. Aroom on esmajoones linnaseline, karameljalt magus, metalne; soojenedes omandab (vees) vettinud maisihelbeid, lahjat kaerahelbeputru ja pappi meenutava buketi. Kehalt keskmik, paraja vi pigem tugeva karbonisatsiooniga; suht igav hapukalt linnaseline maitse, mis jrelmekis tundub lausa leivane ja kah hapukas. Mrksust on vaid pisut tunda, pigem domineerib linnaseline poolmagusus ja lhnaga sarnane prickly metalsus, eriti jrelmaitses, ige pisut magus. Kuiv suutunne. Pris halb pole, aga paras pettumus siiski.

Keg at the Porterhouse Covent Garden - London. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white head. Some sweetish, bready malts in the nose - and little else. Medium sweet flavor with more bready malts, some dough, sugar, apple and honey. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet, bready finish with sweet fruit tones, dough, vague toasty sugars. Not excellent.
