COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s a dry-hopped California Common with a massive malt character, rounded out by a bitter balance from some experimental hops from the Yakima Valley, this beer will leave you saying ‘I’ll be bock!’ He awoke from the time transfer naked, damp, dizzy, disoriented, and alone, except for the bottle of some auburn ale he still clutched in his sweating hand. He looked to the right and then to the left for some kind of shelter. In an instant, a towering figure cast a long shadow over him and he saw a single enormous hand extended his way. All of his synapses crackled as he recognized the massive and terrifying form as that of the Great Brewmaster. He heard a deep voice say, “Come with me if you want to live”. He now knew the bottle in his hand must contain the rare Lagunator and he also knew that he might survive to enjoy it. Experience all the terror and the drama…

lagunitas is starting to make a habit of brewing lager beers with ale yeasts. this mock bock tastes surpringly like the real thing though. dark reddish brown, lots of complex chocolatey malt flavors. hopped well enough for good balance. robust and thick all around. some alchohol on the finish - but still very easy drinking. das ist ser gut! (or something like that)

Clear deep copper hue with a foamy ivory cap. Lovely caramalty biscuity lagered aroma with a faint dry hoppy undertone. Smooth nutty lagered caramalt flavor that’s lightly floral and Americanish. Nice smooth dark bock-like flavor with lightly resiny floral American hops.

It pours deep copper with a beige head. The aroma has beautiful floral hops, toasted malt and light citrus. It has a crisp medium body with prickly carbonation. The taste is a bit sweeter than the aroma with a bit of dry woodiness on the finish. Solid.

Draft at the Towne Tavern. Pours brown with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Big grapefruit on the nose. A fair amount of grapefruit on the tongue balanced nicely with the malt. Finished fairly dry. Solid.

Bomber from the government Alcohol Control store. Pours clear copper with a medium off white head. Aroma of pine, earth, leather, flowers. Taste of sweet caramel and malt, very well balanced with bitter hops. Slight booze in the finish. I find a lot of Lagunitas beers tend to remind me of other Lagunitas beers, but not this one. I need to get me some more.

22 oz bomber from Winco in S.Salem OR. $3.79 Pours a nice clear bright amber in body, with a cute thick and creamy light tan head. Strong dank, resiney and herbal hop aromas. Touch of caramel malt. Taste is a surprise.very much sweeter than the nose had lead me to believe! Sweet and fruity..dank to a minumum but still there. Mouth feel is pretty nice wel carbonated and medium. A pretty nice beer..though the style i am not even guessing!

oobawa (1301) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Overly sweet, mixing caramel and coconut(?) notes with deeper lager esters and a medicinal fade. Heavy duty Lagunitas malts offer a sticky, sweet bun-ish middle, yet the bitterness doesn’t play off the breakfast pastry elements all that well. Dry hopping helps shore up the sugary side, and a citric-dank undertone pops up on the finish. Cat pee and coconut on the nose, pretty dark red color with a healthy head and ample lace. Creamy texture is nice as well. Just a tad too much on the sweet side for me.

Scipio (1044) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2017
Pours a clear, dark red with a medium white head. The aroma is lighter and seems a bit musty. Its kind of earthy, and very bready, with subdued amounts of caramel, pine, and spice. Containing a very mild bitterness, the taste is balanced between earthy maltiness and floral hops. Caramel is very prevalent, some bread and pine, mild cherry, and nuts finish this. A caramel and pine aftertaste lasts awhile. Medium in body, smooth in texture, and average in carbonation. This one isn’t all that special.
