Copperhead Ale – Fordham Brewing Company

Fordham Copperhead Ale
My daughter picked my up a couple of beers that she thought that I would enjoy.  One of the beers in that six-pack was Copperhead Ale from Fordham Brewing Company. Copperhead Ale has a nice copper body color, soft carbonation, and a clear body clarity.  The head size is average and is foamy in texture and off-white in color. The aromas that I perceive from this ale are that of biscuit and bread, toasted grains, and earthy yeast notes.  The flavor profile has those same biscuit notes along with caramel, toasted grains -- malty upfront and a nice hop bitterness on the finish. Copperhead Ale is a nice beer that is enjoyable to dink.  It is not a standout beer that you need to rush out to the store and by a six-pack or a case of.  However, it is a fine ale that has nice flavors and is a middle of the road beer.   ABV = 4.7%
