Amber Ale (alc 3.4% abv)

Hops: Summit.

A balanced ale with spices, gooseberry and a bitter finish with a long ginger twist. Refreshingly different. The name comes from a Copperhead ('Copperheid' in Scots) which is a piece of 'aid climbing' kit, famous on scary routes up El Capitan in California's Yosemite.

Mountain: Our head brewer was climbing Beinn Ime on a mild Easter Sunday. After passing through a cloud inversion above Loch Lomond, he could see all the way from Arran to Ben Nevis. When the weather turned unseasonably hot he really wanted a beer like Copperheid – light and refreshing with a ginger twist.

Tops Out: 1,011m (3,316ft)

"Almost a spicy ginger bread straight out of the oven. For folks that like ginger beer, this is a fuller, more flavoursome experience. Notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger biscuits and porridge. Big lemony, citrus and orange finish."

Chris Hoban, beer buyer for Drinkmonger & Royal Mile Whiskies
