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.

2.23/5  rDev -33.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Pours hazy brown with a soft white head that quickly disappears.

Smells like cheap beer. Plain and simple. Adjunct-y with esters. Mainly smells like CO2.

Taste.. well there isn't much. I taste carbonation, a hint of sweet malt, but mainly cheap beer and carbonation.

Mouthfeel is fizzy. I'm sure the carbonation level isn't off, but the lack of other taste in this beer means that's the main flavor I get.

Overall "not impressed" sums it up well. Looks like someone with a lot of money tired tapping into the craft beer market to get some cash and cut as many corners as possible.

EDIT: Wait a second. This is supposed be an altbier? Would have never guessed...
