ACBF pour

A-Pours a dark copper color. Body seems to be clear and the head is a well-sized, tan collection of fizzy bubbles.

S-A rich, yet reserved Altbier. Bready, slightly musty, sweet caramel. Light Euro hops. All well proportioned.

T-Very well done and very tasty. It's just constructed beautifully. It tastes like dark bread and bread crusts and a fruity Lager yeast and notes of caramel. Light, spicy hops.

M-Light bodied. Very drinkable. A bit creamy.

O-Best Copper Ale I have had. It's such a bland style. This one was very memorable and I'm happy I got to try it several times at ACBF.

Served in a half pint stange glass, cylinder shape, at The Olde Mecklenburg Tap Room. Copper is a Dusseldorf style alt bier, a lagered ale. It is traditional to drink in a half pint cylinder glass.

Appearance: Copper color; firm, frothy head

Smell: Freshly baked bread

Taste: Malty, complex, slightly sweet, apple, caramel, hoppy notes, balanced, smooth from start to finish. Excellent.

Body: Medium body

Comments: My favorite beer. If espresso is the essence of coffee, alt beer may be the essence of beer. It is full flavored, complex in flavor, and very smooth.

Copper pairs well with a variety of foods including: traditional German foods such as bratwurst, pork roast, turkey, lamb, and steak.
