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.

Came from Beer of the Month (or something like). Opportunity to try beer from the east. The west rules, excepting Dogfish Head of course. This beer was thin with little hoppiness. Nice red tint and pleasant caramel (although subtle) aroma.

tombyars (1640) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Tasted this in the Sun Inn, Soho, London on the 30th September 2016. Keg, tap dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Slightly malty aroma with hints of orange peel but hard to detect (cold) Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a digestive biscuit base with light notes of caramel and marmalade fruit. Bitter hop resins impart a dry grassy flavour to the aftertaste which balances the malt well. Finish is malty with spicy gingerbread notes evident on the palate. A decent session Altbier.
