Coffee Lager is an American Amber Lager that’s brewed by Copperpoint Brewing Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a lager glass from a 12 oz. can.
What You Need to Know
The Copperpoint Lager is one of the core offerings from the Boynton Beach-based brewery, and the Coffee Lager takes that base and adds a lot of the bean from Guatemala Antigua. So how was it? Let’s get to the review.
The lager pours a mostly clear amber hue and is topped by a generous cap of frothy pale-cream-colored foam that shows fair retention. The head’s reduction doesn’t leave behind any lace or residue.
As one might expect, the nose is dominated by a scent of coffee beans.
The palate is led by a taste of baked bread that sharpens to a modest bite of peppery hops underneath a lot of cold-pressed coffee bean flavor. The tasting is rounded out with sweet caramel and more baked bread.
The feel is smooth throughout with a rounded draw and a crisp finish. The body is a little under medium with moderate carbonation. The sweet finish is slightly coating.
The Coffee Lager looks nice in the glass even if its head retention is cut a bit short. Both the aroma and palate are fueled and dominated by the coffee beans. The feel is line with the expectations of the style.
Overall, your enjoyment of this brew will be dictated by just how much you like coffee. Though I imagine you likely wouldn’t purchase this beer otherwise, I mention this because there isn’t much else going on with this brew. That being said, a session with the Coffee Lager is enjoyable enough.
