This Special Ale is, in reality, a reconstructed exhumation of the very first ale that we ever brewed way, way back, in 1993. Brewed with a big head, a muscular malty thorax, a silky texture & all strung together with a hoppy sweet nerve sack... yum.

Had on draft at Brews in Granville. POured a dark amber color. Very floral and hoppy aroma. Taste was actually much more malty then I was expecting. Very delightful brew.

This stuff rocks! Pours a rusty amber with a nice off white head with good lacing. Nose of citrusy hops, with a heavy malt character.

Lowe1983 (1397) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Pours a copper color with an off-white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops, caramel, and sweet malts. Flavor is sweet up front with the sweet malts and caramel and finishes decently bitter with the citrus and pine hops. Nice lingering flavor on this one. Another good Lagunitas brew.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2007
This was good. It poured a dark gold with a nice head. The sweet malt came in first, coating the mouth, followed by a strong hop finish. It seemed fuller bodied and stronger than a typical Red.

Tejas (945) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2008 Draught > Flying saucer. I like this. Perfect mix of sweet and bitter. Starts sweet and smooth then finish hoppy. Great beer, IMO. Definitely my favorite Lagunitas thus far.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - SEP 17, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2008 This is a rich, flavourful beer with complexity, body, great balance and a pleasant, flowery element in the finish. It’s full of strong flavour, yet very drinkable and smooth. A nice reddish-brown, it has a rich foamy head with good lacing.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - SEP 16, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2007 Not as strong or syrupy as i was expecting. A very nice hop scent and taste of hops, hay and celery with slight spices and a very fruity malty balance. Medium body with a crisp yet smooth palate. Finishes a bit flowery but not overwhelming. The finish could be longer and more pronounced.

malrubius (2241) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 16, 2007
12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Dark amber/red color with flat tan head and lace. Strong fresh hop aroma. Very fruity malt taste with clean dry finish hoppy, slightly cinnamony finish that almost hurts. Medium body, medium-high carbonation. Pretty tasty, a little different from the usual IPA glut.
