3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
FROM NOTES: July 1, ’12
Slightly hazy, light brown body with a bit of red tint. About a one-finger tan head that leaves a small amount of lacing. Pine and citrus hop notes that are pleasing and are equally balanced with the solid caramel malt. The flavor follows the aroma. The citrus and pine notes come across the palate cleanly. The maltiness is strong and provides a very solid base for the flavors. The mouthfeel is a little thin but a decent brew overall.

Consistent aroma, malts and hops. Beautiful pure brown color with both awesome head and lace. To hoppy for the style even if I like it that way. Very good brew altogether.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear brownish red with a big off-white head and some chunks floating in it. Aroma is hops and caramel/nut malts. Taste is dark nuts with some yeastiness. Decent hop finish. Overall, this is good (especially at $4.49 a bomber), but it tastes like a brown IPA, not a brown ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber into pint glass. Translucent reddish-brown color with light tan head. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel malt, some dried fruits and citrus hoppiness. Taste starts with citrus/piney hoppiness giving way to big maltiness (slight roast and nuttiness). Medium body, low carbonation, malty, creamy with bitter dry finish. I like big brown ales, I like this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark ruby color, a little hazy, with a thin almost non-existent head. Distinct aroma of caramel malt and molasses. Taste is thick on the palate and a little bit syrupy. It drinks like a heavier alcohol beer than it is - overall very solid. This a relatively complex beer - like it a lot.

Malty and delicious. Sweet but not overly. not too boozy for the alcohol it contains. Overall a favorite.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taste is incredibly sweet and smooth with again a plethora of prunes. I also get some slight hops but they are completely overshadowed by the sweet character of this beer. Lagunitas has yet to disappoint.
