look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a bright amber with two-finger head. Subtle smell of spicy hops and malt.

Smooth, clean malt flavor profile. Prickly carbonation that lifts the toasty and tasty malt flavors. Bready. This is decidedly good fresh and really hits the mark. Extremely easy to drink and the mouthfeel is perfect for style and session.

Very nice altbier interpretation. Glorious with pretzels and mustard.

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.

4.03/5  rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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.
