A: Clear, thin head due to my distracted pour, clean white head that laced well
S: Malty. Caramel notes with an ever so faint pale chocolate malt note,
T: Sweet accented by caramel, toffee, brown sugar. Mild earthy hopiness
M: Medium / full
O: I enjoyed this beer over the weekend in Destin. A much better choice than the Corona in a can sitting 1 chair over. I enjoyed the malty profile with a hint of hops. I would definitely enjoy a six pack of this beer.

As I pour a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass I see a moderate head develop over a beautiful golden orange/burnt red brew....

I take a few deep smells, and the first thing that pops out is a malty dominated fragrance.... Following that, is earthy and caramel notes.... There's even the slightest hint of cocoa....

I take a sip and a mostly malty flavor grabs me.... There's also caramel, raisin, and a bit of hoppiness to the flavor....

I would describe the mouthfeel as a well carbonated brew with a medium body that's almost prickly and messes with the palate a bit....

Overall, this beer isn't bad at all.... Just another decent brew out of Lagunitas.

12oz bottle poured into a Kasteel goblet glass.

Appearance- Dark orange with reddish tints. A finger of white head that dissipates into a fine layer over the beer. Leaves some lacing.

Smell- Lots of bread, grain and malt with some citrus notes.

Taste- Almost all bready malt with some char. Almost like a burnt bread flavor but not burnt to a crisp. Definte malt bomb with a decent sour hop finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium and pretty heavily carbonated. Kind of makes it a hard swallow.

Overall- Good, it kind of reminds me of an Oktoberfest with a smidge more hop. Would make a great drinking or session beer.

I love Lagunitas. This Copper Ale, as they call it, is a nice beer.
A= Nice golden, almost burnt red color. Head is a nice rich white foam.
S= A bit alcoholic for my nose. I found the alcohol masked the rich malty aromas I was hoping for and have found in previous experiences with this beer.
T= Taste was nice. Rich, malty and a bit of sweetness that was a nice surprise considering the lack thereof in the nose.
M= Medium mouthfeel with a bit of a slimey feel. I think the low carbonation attributed to this.
O= Overall I did enjoy the beer... just not my favorite Lagunitas effort by far.

Shared by matt9875. Thanks Matt!

The beer is copper hued with a quarter inch of off white head. The aroma brings a touch of fruit and some sweet malts. Bready with a touch of hop character in the finish. Medium bodied with subtle alcohol. Overall, this was ok.
