4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Aroma: piney goodness, bright hop smell, citrus - hard time picking up malts over all the orange citrus/hop smell. Maybe some dry hay malt.
Appearance: light orange copper, white head, clear
Taste: bitter hops up front, balances out midpalate, sweet citrus finish, and it all beatifully lingers together once it’s down.
Palate: long finish - and I mean that as a good thing. Light body (tingly carbonation), oily sticky texture
Overall: this is one of my favorite beers. I was initially worried that it was going to be a one time thing - literally just a Brown Sugga substitute for one year, and I was ready to throw myself off a bridge accordingly. I couldn’t live in a world where I knew this once existed, only for it to be no longer. Dramatic? Yes. True? Yes.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells of malty sweet breads with slight hop fruit scent. Taste starts off bitter with a bite then instantly switchs to a lovely sweet sugary bread like flavor finishes kind of malty. Light yellowish gold color. Delishous brew makes me wanna try brown sugga.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Candied orange peel, piney/resiny hops, grass, grapefruit, ripe pineapple, and a hint of molasses. Mild pepper and dark bread. Some slightly camphoric notes from the hops. Quite hoppy. Medium syrupy, with fizzy carbonation. Taste is hoppy, herbal bitter and lightly syrupy sweet. Very good, though not something I generally crave.

From the bottle the pour is clear yellow and brown, the aroma is ale not sure I get the other hints possibly brown sugar, the taste is lightly hopped a little sweet, the finish is clean I get the brown sugar notes in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium.

Äntligen julöl!!! Ehm...eh, förlåt, jag menar: "Åh vad härligt för barnen med denna glädjens högtid". Och apropå glädje: Tack snälla tomten för att Lagunitas och 7,7% jävulskt välproducerad alkohol finns.

Pours clear dark golden with some white head. A tropical aroma that turns into deep resin with the toffee flavours from the malts. The rye is strongly present in the taste. I wonder how they made this so full-bodied and light given all the malts involved and the complex taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle, at a breakfast joint in Petaluma. Deep golden to orange colour, large off-white head. Aroma and flavour of citrus, pine, caramel and sweet malts. Maybe a bit too far out on the sweet side for me, but still a fairly nice beer. Some alcohol in the finish. Anyway, I wouldn’t say that it sucks.
