Whitewater Copperhead

Rating: 3.0

Yet another Whitewater beer now, this one coming in slightly lighter at 3.7%. It is another beer that I picked up on a recent trip over to Ireland and I don’t think there are too many of their beers that are readily available that I have yet to try, although I do have a review of their Belfast Black to follow shortly. This one was a case of me picking up about the only beer I hadn’t already tried that Asda had in stock so I’m not sure if it will be up to much really but it was a case of ‘When in Rome’ when I bought it.

Whitewater Copperhead

Appearance (3/5): A light copper colour, the name should have been the give away, and topped with a bubbly, white head about half a centimetre tall and with about average retention.
Aroma (6/10): Light on the nose but consisting mainly of sweet malts and some very light fruit. There are a few floral notes and a very slightly nutty aroma too.
Taste (6/10): Again malty, much like the smell with the same sweetness and a bit of earthy bitterness as well. There is a nutty flavour too and some lighter spice in the background.
Palate (3/5): Very dry and with a light medium body complimented by medium carbonation levels and a clean and dry, bitter finish that is fairly crisp.

Overall (12/20): This one is yet another fairly average beer from the Whitewater brewery, much like its predecessors it is pleasant and drinkable but lacking anything out of the ordinary. A pretty malty flavour throughout but it didn’t have too much else really.
