Blonde version of Lucky 13, released in 2011 and 2012.
From the first day of the first mash of the first recipe in the first brewhouse in the first space to this oasis 13 years on the road; We have worked hard to walk in the footsteps of our hero brewers- The Noble Brewer of the planetís only legal Steam Beer, and Oregonís Rebel Brewer from Newport. Thirteen years down the road, we have found our own voice as brewers but our admiration for the Great Ones has not dimmed one bit. If we walked well down the heroís path ourselves, perhaps we too have been an inspiration for others. Beer is a Bronze Age business and we feel honored to have left our footprints on itís path into history, at the same time leaving our flavors on your buds. Thanks for your trust over the years and we hope you enjoy this specialty breweed Hi-Gravity Auburn offering.

An extremely sweet aroma. The flavor isnít quite as sweet as the aroma, which is good. A bit sticky sweet still, but some dry hops in the finish.

22oz bottle. The beer is a clear reddish brown with some off-white head. Classic Lagunitas hop aromas of resin and grapefruit with lots of bready malt as well. Flavor is malty up front with a nice hop bite. Toffee, caramel, floral hops. My only complaint with this beer is it started to be a bit too sweet for me which made it difficult to get through the bomber.

650ml brown bottle. Golden pour, clear. Small creamy white cap. Lots of sweetness in the aroma, deep caramel, brown sugar, also has citrusy hops. Flavour has a lot of malt sweetness, some toasty notes with a lot of caramel and toffee with cutting grapefruit bitterness. Some brown sugary, toffeeish malt in the finish with late acidic hops that linger. Some alcohol present. Medium body and average level of carbonation.

Reid (1946) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 30, 2011
22 oz bottle from "Habits" in S.Salem. $3.69 Clear and darkish golden beer with a huge,thick and frothy off white head. Extremely pungent hop aromas,resiny and deeply herbal..some caramel malts also appear. Taste is well balanced with a huge chewy caramel/toffee malt presense and an equally terrific dank resiny hop over load..a titanic clash!..hops win in the end though. Ok on the palate..the two immense competitors meld well. A good beer but not one of Lagunitas best.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Bottle thanks to swalden28. Poured golden with a white head and some lace. Aroma was caramel, peach, and mango. Flavor is same as the nose with the malt and hops. Body was medium with medium carbonation.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 29, 2011
On tap. Billed as an imperial alt...its not. Pours with a clear bronze to brown body with an off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aromas are hoppy, herbal, toasty, bready, brown sugar and marzipan. A bit sticky sweet. A hint of weed. Flavors are hoppy, fruity, and stale hops (that are a touch citrusy). Grainy, tea like, brown sugar. ASA feel, not an Alt for sure. Some alcohol, medium bubbles. Not a big fan to be honest. Messy.

bottle. clear dark gold with small white head. nose is very biscuity and toasty with some burnt toffee. flavors of root beer hard candy and pinch of cinnamon. finally a non-hoppy beer from lagunitas!!..and itís fantastic! lightish body. mildly sweet and rightfully so. abv is hidden.

jstraw (1938) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Amber-gold with big, flotsam, white head / Musty, skunky, nose of sour malt and citrus / Medium to full body, big malts somewhat offset by hopping with good, lightly bitter, finish / Subdued flavors of sour malt, resin, bread, lemon, mango, kiwi, caramel, and cardboard / Peculiar, although not without interest. My least favorite beer ever, though, by this great brewer. Almost seems like it wasnít test batched.

mcberko (7229) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2011
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma of crusty bread, yeast and sweet malts. Flavour of sweet bready malt, caramel, candied sugar, mild hop bitterness and some Belgian style yeast. Solid, though lacking depth / complexity. Nowhere near as good as the original Lucky 13.
