Copperhead Light Ale

Copperhead Light Ale: 3.2% ABV (recipe under revision as of 22 July 2012)

Grains: Pilsner Malt, Crystal, Munich
Hops: Challenger

Utilizing a single decoction mashing method and utilizing FWH (First Wort Hopping) to ensure maximum hop flavor and aroma development and undergoing strict temperature regimes and long lagering to age to perfection.  It has a long lasting off-white colored head with a nice red-hued amber color in the pint glass. At low strength of 3.2% ABV Copperhead Light is a great “Lawn mower beer”!

Tasting Notes: To the nose it presents a spicy aroma from the Challenger hops.  Notes of caramel are balanced with the bitterness of the Challenger hops.

Food Pairing Suggestions: Roasted herbed chicken, buttered herb mashed potatoes, peppered green beans.
