This is a lush red-amber coloured a with a good thick white head that appears to have had a think about hanging around and is slowly deciding against it. Aromas of good dessert malt: caramel, nectarine tart tatin, biscuits, golden syrup and toffee. All of this suggests that it smells sweet, but it isn’t that sweet. It is luscious though, like a busty winking redhead.
Succumb to its charms and it rewards you with a lovely toffeeish kiss. It is like gorgeous roasty caramels on autumnal fruits. In other words, that busty redhead has drawn you aside and don’t make any plans for being clothed for an hour or so. Not the best analogy for beer consumption, but I qualify that by saying that this beer just demands your attention and a pint of this is never enough. It has all the elements of a sweet sessionable ale and if I can draw the comparison with a tryst with an auburn seductress, then I will... have... hmm. Yes.
May I have another?
6.7%ABV. Copper Ale.
Poured out deep amber. 14 SRM.
Nose has sweet malt.
Mouthfeel is beery. Palate is nutty, deep brown toast, bread crusts, pie crusts. Hops are woody, grassy with a light sappy finish. Maarten1993 (1355) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2017
Drank with Kaspar and Lennart @ Piet Huisman 14-07-17. Nice fresh IPA. Not that memorable. Niko100 (2994) - Chicago, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2017

Mild malt smells with some leather and apricot. Pours an orange with a frothy quick dissipating white head with good lacing. Tastes follow the nose, malty with a little metalic note. Short finish and dry mouthfeel. Balanced but less character than the average Lagunitas. hallinghansen (3418) - Odense SV, DENMARK - APR 26, 2017
Bottle at home. Clear amber body with a medium offwhite head. Sweet malty, caramel. Decent.

Yet another Lagunitas standby, gotta rate em all! This one pours a rich dark caramelly color. The aroma is sweet and malty and caramelly. The taste is rich deep earthy malts with yes caramel and even a little spicy/tangy kick on the back end. Overall, this is smooth, easy drinking, but with a little complexity and an unexpected 6.75% ABV, it rises above most of its amber peers. Good for realizing the high temp tomorrow is 69 degrees lol.

Has a rich copper look indeed with a whipped head of creamy foam. Intensely rich notes of caramel and toffee with a hint of oak and dark dried fruit at the end . Very smooth and sweet. M_Sack (773) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2017
Bottle. Deep copper with thin white head. Big bread and caramel malt, dried fruits and ester elements, with underpinning citrus elements. Initial moderate bitterness, with big bread and caramel malt mid palate. Earthy hop bitterness provides long finish and prevents any sweetness. Enjoyed this as my first autumnal beer for the season.

Bottle from J’s. Pours a slightly hazy brown with a half finger of foam. Caramel and toffee nose. Clean and very malt forward. More caramel, a little wood and earth. Dry finish. Basic, but OK for a malt head I suppose. TheBeachBeers (16) - - JAN 26, 2017
Poured from bottle into cup. Hints of caramel in aroma. Tastes slightly sweet. Full bodied with a medium length finish.
