3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a lush red-amber coloured a with a good thick white head that appears to have had a think about hanging around and is slowly deciding against it. Aromas of good dessert malt: caramel, nectarine tart tatin, biscuits, golden syrup and toffee. All of this suggests that it smells sweet, but it isn’t that sweet. It is luscious though, like a busty winking redhead.
Succumb to its charms and it rewards you with a lovely toffeeish kiss. It is like gorgeous roasty caramels on autumnal fruits. In other words, that busty redhead has drawn you aside and don’t make any plans for being clothed for an hour or so. Not the best analogy for beer consumption, but I qualify that by saying that this beer just demands your attention and a pint of this is never enough. It has all the elements of a sweet sessionable ale and if I can draw the comparison with a tryst with an auburn seductress, then I will... have... hmm. Yes.
May I have another?

"this one also drinks lighter than the abv listed above. this is a medium bodied copper ale, leaning towards the malty side. decent aroma, average flavor."

Bottle@ahven. Rich coppery clear. Bready caramels, some autumny leafyness. Dark caramels, green pines, weak chocolate, bitter finish. Probably my least favourite lagunitas sofar.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty and light hop aroma and flavor. Light bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth of a weak moment. OK, but not more. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Nice reality check that a beer can be very good without a massive amount of hops. This is a malt forward brew that showcases how tasty malt can be. Outstanding.

Pours a finger of head on a clear dark straw colored body.
The aroma is rich caramel.
The taste is sweet caramel with some lemon bitterness to balance it out.
The texture is sticky and a bit thicker.
It’s a nice ale.

Bottle into pint glass, clear copper color with light tan head. Aroma of light caramel malt and lighter citrus/floral hops. Taste adds notes of nuttiness, toast and some earthy bitterness. Light-medium body, low carbonation, creamy with some light citrus bitterness. Pretty nice light flavorful amber ale.
