Our Copperhead Ale is a copper coloured German-style Altbier, with a light, malty sweetness and a pronounced hop flavour. Alt is the German word for old, referring to the older style of ale brewing. Altbier is Germany's pale ale. Copperhead Ale is top-fermented, making it an ale and it has a medium body. It has hints of maltiness and hoppiness in its aroma, with a definite hop flavor and a medium hop bitterness. Altbier is predominately brewed in the northern part of Germany, especially Dusseldorf and gets its "sweet roast" flavour and copper colour from Caramunich malts.
