Availability: Year-round

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.

3.4/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Clear copper body with a short white head. Dissipates quickly, speckling of lace on the sides.

S - Sweet malts, maybe some toffee, but very faint.

T - Basic sweet malts here, not as much depth to say they're caramel malts. A bit of earthy hops on the end.

M - Medium bodied, nice smooth beer

O - Nice easy drinking session beer, no surprises
