COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale contains no actual copper but we’re pretty literal... It looked coppery, so we lamely called it a copper ale. Lots’a nice caramel malt though... Originally 5.9% alcohol by volume, currently

My lord, this is a scary ass tasty beer. I am stunned that the ratings are not higher because it is awesome!!! Pours a beautiful copper color. Rich malty aroma with an orange twang. Lightly sweet malty flavor with some grainy edginess and citric hops to balance. Rich and full body. You would never guess the alcohol content…no wonder they call it the Kronic. Fabulous!

One of the best copper ales I have ever had my lips on! The taste was outstanding alongwith the aromas....a classic with new world feel!

I loved this beer, it was very full bodied and complex. It seemed with every taste I was finding a new flavor. caramel, coffee, roasted nuts. This may be my new favorite ale is it brown ... is it red .... is is something BETTER.

Dude, it was, uh, well, like, you know, like,just such a damn fine amber ale, like, ultra smooth and silky mouthfeel, more malty than hoppy, excellent body, with, uh, hefty caramel notes. Needs more hops to be what I consider a ’West Coast Amber’, but an excellent amber all the same!

Amber-red colour, not much head. Light hoppy aroma that is simply delectable. Sweet, mild herby taste. Would be better cold. I do love me some Lagunitas, though.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2009 Draft at Jerry’s. Copper indeed with good, foamy white head / Malt, hop and citrus nose / Medium, malty body, somewhat sweet, with chewy, hoppy finish / Forward sour malt and caramel flavors with undertones of orange peel and lemon and candied sugar finish / Better classified as an amber ale. Great balance - substantial while light and refreshing.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2010 Draft at Sweet Spot. Clear amber with diminishing head. Pleasant malt, berry, and leafy aroma. Crunchy maltiness with balancing sweet and hoppy flavor. Medium body, medium carbonation, medium alcohol, but lots of flavor indicates a brilliant worknight beer. RE-RATE: Cask at Toad in the Hole. Hazy red-amber with receding white head. Generous rich malt and restrained fresh fruity aromas. Unbelievably stupendous crystal and Munich maltiness, a pleasing hint of tannin, and some rounding fruity notes of fresh grapes and plums. Soft, rounded, lubricious mouthfeel, easy to drink in obscene quantity. This is one drop-dead gorgeous cask ale!

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2011 An impressive beer. I’d almost call this beer sort of a hybrid style for 2 reasons. One, it’s a little hoppy for an amber/red, but hoppy to the smell mostly. The taste is actually more malty caramel than hoppy, which I find quite intriguing how they’re able to accomplish that. The aftertaste is smooth and has little bite. I would recommend this beer for those who enjoy both hops and malts as a way to get the best of both worlds!

Appearance was clear caramel with a lasting 1 finger rocky head, lacing.Aromas was sweet chocolaly malts,hops where present also with spicy prefume, hints of seafood? Taste was sweet honey buttescotch and nutty chocolaty malts. Hops where citrusy and herbal married with the malts.Yeasts are floral and alcohol hidden well.Mouthfeel was velvety and creamy carbonation with balanced body and long malty hoppy finish.Love this brew...

Yummy, many malt and caramel tones. Full bodied with a hint of citrus and a tingly hop finish.
