COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale contains no actual copper but we’re pretty literal... It looked coppery, so we lamely called it a copper ale. Lots’a nice caramel malt though... Originally 5.9% alcohol by volume, currently

Beautiful red-orange color, but with a head a tad too thick and fluffy. Subdued, perfumey hop bouqet greets me with the presence of alchol fluttering about as well. This beer is definitely balanced in favor of the hops, with a tangy hop predominace that does use restraint. A nicely defined beer with moderate complexity and the feel of an imperial IPA.

Still trying to figure out what the ’censored’ is all about. To me, this seems like a very nice brown ale. Has the typical bitter edge that one would expect from a West Coast beer. Frankly, these guys are becoming one of my favorite breweries, if not THE favorite at this point. Haven’t had any bad quality beer from them yet. Definately up with Sierra Nevada in consistancy.

The first thing I thought when I tasted this brew was ’is this an esb?’ Then you taste the hops and a slight fruity taste, and your tongue is going wild. Good beer overall, very happy with the 7.7%

Whats with the wording all over the label? Red-orange color. Aroma was of fruit cocktail, but as if those pink cherries were replaced with hops (what’s with those pink cherries anyways?). This beer is like a hoppy ESB...classic ESB taste and finish with a crisp, floral hoppiness mixed in between nicely.

Is Kronik what that’s supposed to say under the ’Censored’ bar? Very heady, fairly clear amber. Grapes, dry hoppiness in the nose. The taste was a little off-blaance but not bad. Maybe off-balance isn’t really what accurately describes it, but something made the aroma noticeably better than the taste. Comparable with their Maximum IMO.

medium bodied with reddish amber color. has a slight red ale spruciness / sharpness to it. bit more hoppy than most copper / ambers. can taste the alchohol a little. flavors are pretty simple. decent beer - nothing spectacular.

Not great, but an overall winner. Has a nice flavor too it, but the label is right. These guys might have named it ’censored’ just to sell more beer.

Dude, it was, uh, well, like, you know, like,just such a damn fine amber ale, like, ultra smooth and silky mouthfeel, more malty than hoppy, excellent body, with, uh, hefty caramel notes. Needs more hops to be what I consider a ’West Coast Amber’, but an excellent amber all the same!

Bought this one on a whim, my first from the brewery, and was very pleased with what I found. Stong and complex. Very agressively bitter, a bit too much for my taste. I’ll be sure to seek out more from Lagunitas though.

I really thought this one was outstanding. Very complex, starts very malty, with flavors of caramel, moves to a very robust, full flavored ale, with fruit on the palate. Highly reccomended to anyone who likes a good full bodied strong ale.
