A: Pour revealed a clear medium copper colored beer, with a nice off-white long lasting head.
S: Aroma brought forth a nice combination of malt sweetness and light hop aroma, that invites you take a taste, or three.
T: Firm upfront bitterness that's followed by a balanced malt sweetness, then ending with a lingering palette pleasing dry bitterness. It's not the most bitter Alt I've tasted, but most people have a odd view that Düsseldorf Alt's must be brutally bitter. If you've ever been to Düsseldorf, you know this is not the case.
M: Medium light mouth feel that dances on your tongue, which is clean and crisp, displaying the qualities expected from this type of beer.
Overall impression: I perfect example of the style. The combination of hop bitterness and malt sweetness would please even the most demanding resident of Düsseldorf. Great job OMB! I wonder why I'm a weekly visitor?
Serving type: on-tap

This amazing Altbier or brown ale, caught my attention just for being different, i was(am) new to Mecklenburg and not expecting alot gave it a shot. What i got, was an amazing beer one of the best I have had and also a member of a brewery i look forward to exploring. Its dark red appearance really lets you know your drinking a great beer, while its smell is not strong I will happily overlook this factor. Its mouth feel is amazing, probably the best of any beer i have head to date and it really tastes great. This beer is great, and when I have friends from my home area (CT) come visit, i will make sure they have a OMB Copper of there own to try.

A: Pours a crystal clear amber in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation that rises slowly from the bottom of the glass and some golden yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy off-white head that reduces to a mottled thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a couple of small much thicker spots and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of slightly sweet bready malts with a light to moderate amount of spicy hops.
T: Upfront there is a moderate amount of slightly sweet bready malts with notes of caramel sweetness. There is a light to moderate amount of spicy hops and a light amount of earthy yeast flavors. Hints of bitterness in the finish which fades pretty quickly.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light hints of dryness in the finish.
O: Easy to drink and enjoyable - a nice American representation of the style (which I have fond memories of when I visited Düsseldorf). Definitely one to grab again.
