Who needs precious metals, when you’ve got Copper?! This copper colored ale is a real crowd-pleaser. Copperhook strikes the perfect balance of smooth, rich, malty flavor you’d expect from a craft brew with a lighter body and hop profile that makes it a perfect “session” beer when you’ve got a long day ahead of knocking back a few with your buddies.

Reviewed from session notes.

Transparent copper color, receding white foam collar for a head, very little retention time or lacing. Smells and tastes of generic lightly toasted and caramel malts, has a small amount of metallic off-taste to the finish, which is otherwise crisp and clean but for that one flawed aspect. I did not detect any diacetyl in my bottle. Medium body, lighter levels of carbonation.

A rather standard amber.

Review adapted from notes taken 8/30/11

Appearance: Dull orange/burnt copper, small head, average lacing

Smell: Very mild - some caramel malts, some bread crust, a touch of toffee, not much else going on

Taste: Similarly simple - kind of tastes like crust on a white bread - a touch of syrupy, malt extract-like sweetness - some bitterness and herbal hops

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, and refreshing, decent carbonation

Overall: Pretty boring, very average

I don't really have much negative to say about this beer, but I don't have much praise, either. It's a very minimalistic take on the American Amber/Red Ale style. This is lacking hops and a good malt profile.

Poured into a pint glass.

It's coppery and clear. There's a whitish head that leaves little and lots of visible carbonation.

It's got a caramelly flavor, there's also some roasted nuttiness.

It's got the same nutty flavor with a bit of toasted malts. There is a nice bittering hop bite.

Crisp but smooth mouthfeel. a little light on body.

A good beer for drinking, but not much for thinking about. I'd drink another but won't go out of my way to get one.
