Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Bottle pours a bright copper colour, with a decent white head that disappears quickly. Didn't recognize this as an "alt" beer until reading the BA classification, as it struck me as a more mundane "macro American" amber. Stilted aroma of some caramelized malts, but without the breadth of many and with a hint of a stale, industrial tang. Flavour is simple and may appeal to a wider crowd, but lacks the depth for which I'd hoped. Some simple caramel, but divorced from the malt spectrum found in a traditional Dusseldorf "alt".

Sweet finish without complications - which I hope will act as a gateway beer to bring others over to the more interesting "craft" side...
