COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Redish amber pour. Off white head that maintains. Nice lacing. Light floral aroma, nearly non existent. Mild caramel and citrus flavors. Noticeable carbonated finish. Full flavored quality beer without overpowering.

Poured into a shaker pint, red copper color for sure with a slightly off-white head. Aroma is malty and sweet with a hop presence toward the end. Taste is malt, brown sugar, slight bitterness with a smooth finish. Overall a satisfying red ale.

Transfer from BA review on 3-2-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance ĖPours a beautiful clear copper color with a thick and rocky cream colored head. The head fades quite slowly over time, leaving a nice level of lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell Ė The smell is sweet and malty with notes of caramel and toffee backed by a lightly roasted malt and a grainy aroma. Taste Ė The taste is fairly uniform throughout, yet very nice and smooth. It is largely of sweet caramel and brown sugar mixed with flavors of a biscuit breadiness and flavors of roasted malt. More toward the middle to the end there is a very light amount of earthy hop which comes to the tongue all in all leaving a nice sweet but clean taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is on the averages to slightly below average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is quite average. The thinner body is actually complimenting of the sweeter flavors of the brew and make it quite easy to drink. Overall-This is a tasty amber ale a little on the sweeter side with great smoothness and drinkability.

A very good ale, copper colored, medium bodied. It has a good blend of rich malt and ample hops.

12oz bottle from Beer Army Outpost in New Bern. Dark copper hue, murky clarity with mostly diminishing off-white fizzy head. Okay lacing. Dark fruit aroma (cherry?). Dark fruit taste up front with a short sweet malt finish. Flat carbonation, wet on the palate, good mouthfeel.

Look: pours an amber color. Whit head that leaves lacing in the edge if the glass. Smell: very sweet. Like a fruity gum. Slightly tropical. Apples Taste: apples. Darker fruits. Very hop forward beer. Slight maltiness on the back. Feel: leaves a thin film on the mouth. Medium carbonation. Overall: ok beer. Something in the flavor I can't quite figure out what it is (wheat???)Not bad for a red ale. First drank: 7/13/14 home

This has an off-white colored head above a clear, very copper-colored body. Thereís actually quite a bit of junk floating in this with slow carbonation. The aroma is sweet and really enjoyable. I love the way Lagunitas beers smell... I think itís the sweetness. Thereís something sticky, beyond your average caramelized malts, in this beer - something that reminds me of brown sugar. The aroma is malty-sweet with some light hops and an almost fruit-like character. In the mouth itís light, a little fruity, with a fruitiness in the flavor that mellows nicely against the hop flavor and what seems like a very green, plant-like character thatís hard to pin-point. Itís light, sweet, very lively in the mouth. For a low-IBU beer I canít imagine anything better for the style. Itís low in bitterness, yes, but well-supported by a delicious hop flavor that balances out the residual sugars. Itís certainly very rich, and if copper were made of beer it would likely taste exactly like this. Itís lively and lightly sweet for a beer that looks so heavy in caramel sweetness. Itís incredibly sessionable, too.
