The name isn’t a coincidence. This Düsseldorf style Altbier blends caramelized malted barley with pronounced hop character to create a subtle copper hue. Copperhead Ale is famous for its signature balanced flavor & impeccable smoothness.

App: nice copper colored, translucent with fair amount of white head
Smell: classic altbier with smells of toasted malts, biscuit, hint of floral hops
Taste: sweet malts forward, lot of caramel and hint of burnt sugar, a bitter floral finish to offset the sweet and a fairly clean finish
Mouthfeel: Fair amount of carbonation, light bodied
Overall great for the style, and easily quaffable, well balanced and good beer to accompany burgers and hot dogs or by itself – I consider it an alternative bier to the routine lagers and people are always surprised to find they enjoy it.
