Otter Creek Brewing - Copper Ale

Otter Creek is a small batch brewery located in Middlebury, VT. Copper Ale is their flagship beer.

It is, according to their website:

"...a medium bodied, amber ale inspired by the Altbiers of Northern Germany. Brewed with six different malts, three hop varieties and our special house yeast, Copper Ale is characterized by a well-balanced blend of malty notes and mild bitterness."

Slightly cloudy with a bright, well.... copper color. Pours with a light, foamy head. Leaves minimal lacing.

The Copper Ale has a mild, hoppy aroma with hints of citrus and honey.

Taste & Feel
Very carbonated, but light on flavor. It has a mild bitterness and is lightly hoppy with a slight metallic taste that gets enhanced by the carbonation. I also picked up hints of apple and brown sugar.
