On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear amber with a big cream head and great lacing. Husky, corny, bready, biscuity, grainy aroma. Taste is malty, cereal, grainy, grassy, slightly floral, biscuity, and a touch roasty. Light body with medium carbonation. Meh.

A bottle from Craft Beer Base. Another solid beer from Lagunitas. I’ve never been blown away by their beers but I’ve never been dissapointed either, they make good beer. This poured a nice copper color with an off-white head. It had a spicy malt aroma. The flavor was rich & piquant with a bitter caramel finish. Good.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Allow me to begin by saying that I feel the overall rating of 89 this beer receives is much too low given the blending of the many facets it showcases. It pours a gorgeous copper color, but the khaki head dissipates way too quickly. Otherwise, this would be an attractive pour. A bit of Chardonnay and dark fruit on the nose. The mouthfeel is extraordinary. The light oiliness blends well with the carbonation, avoiding localization of either. Cranberry and cherry emerge as the dominant flavors. Lightly bitter hoppiness presents seemlessly toward the finish. A magnificently engineered beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle, but says 6.75% abv. Pours a nice red copper with a two inch beige head that lasts. Taste is of malt, caramel, sugar, some and some hops. Similar malty aroma. Has a decent, wet body. The finish is mostlty clean and then a bitter and dry. Good, but not great.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Full bodied, perfectly balanced and smooth on the palate. Has a nice hoppiness which is evenly backed up back just the right amount of malt. The finish is almost chewy. I was very surprised by this brew!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a clear copper color with a big, frothy, light tan head and a slight amount of carbonation. Good lacing left on the glass all the way down. Had aromas of butterscotch, a bit of syrup and vanilla, and malt. Was really sweet and malty all the way down. The mouthfeel was slick and sticky, and a butterscotch aftertaste lingered for a while. A must try for malt lovers!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Frothy head that won’t quit. Robust red brownish color. Smells piney citrusy. Tastes floral and cerealy carmel. A delicious exposition of hop flavor without turning harsh. Light to mid palate.
