COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 planet’s only legal Steam Beer, and Oregon’s 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 hero’s 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 it’s 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.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Tasted 9/14/11. Bomber bottle. Pours mildly hazy with a honey golden hue. Moldy off-white head. Aromas of honey, grape candy and mild citrus. Full bodied with a lot of dimensions to the palate. A decent lingering alcohol burn. A cooked sugar sweetness, dark berry sweetness, honey nuance with an astringent effervescence. What a fun style. Earthy, yet sweet and tangy. Nice and estery with an herbal aspect. Very nice.

AirForceHops (2990) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 4, 2014
2012 bottle, part of my Sunday 2014 cellar clean out day. Copper color with still perfect carbonation leaving a decent head retention. Aroma is orange marmalade, pine hops with some light grassy hops. Good amount of citrus.

Flavor shows light bitterness upfront in the form of grapefruit and hints of resin. Big malt backbone giving a sweet bread and caramel. Secondary flavor of candy sugar and sweet grain. The balance between the pine hops and citrus and sweetness is pretty nice. Texture is slick with the alcohol being totally subdued at this point. Overall very drinkable, nice sipper.

One2remeber (145) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle. Light copper, orange hue. Creamy, off-white head. Sticky, sweet malts, juicy grape candy (jolly ranchers/fruit roll up). Smells great. Resinous hops. Reminds me a Stone AB with a lighter malt bill. Hop profile of an barley wine, Blue Point Old Hollowing Bastard. Booze is present and warming. Beer is on-point.

DiarmaidBHK (3387) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle from total wine McLean. Pours orange with a thin white head. Lots of lacing in the glass. A bit of alcohol on the nose. The taste notes are more spruce. Not my favorite from Lagunitas.

Glouglouburp (5956) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
In short: A sweet golden ale, honeyed and fruity juice with mild bitterness. Ok beer.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed relatively fresh one month after purchase.
The look: Crystal clear golden body topped by medium off-white head quickly dissipating to a small layer of foam leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is moderately hoppy (fruity hop character very much like sweet apricots) along with honeyed cereals. Taste has a lot of oily cereals, honeyed pastry, mangos, sweet apricots, kiwis, a bit of caramel. Rather sweet beer upfront with the sweetness feeling very much sweet canned fruit juice and somehow not very much cereals sweetness. Bitterness is barely enough to balance the fruity-juicy-sweetness. Not a superb beer but you can’t go wrong with this $4.49 bomber, not many tasty cheap bombers anymore. I drank my Luck 13 bottle, then opened an umbrella indoors under a ladder, kicked my black cat and then threw my Lucky 13 bottle and crashed my mirror, I just don’t tempt fate, I sit on its face.
