ACBF pour

A-Pours a dark copper color. Body seems to be clear and the head is a well-sized, tan collection of fizzy bubbles.

S-A rich, yet reserved Altbier. Bready, slightly musty, sweet caramel. Light Euro hops. All well proportioned.

T-Very well done and very tasty. It's just constructed beautifully. It tastes like dark bread and bread crusts and a fruity Lager yeast and notes of caramel. Light, spicy hops.

M-Light bodied. Very drinkable. A bit creamy.

O-Best Copper Ale I have had. It's such a bland style. This one was very memorable and I'm happy I got to try it several times at ACBF.
