COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is not the original Pale Ale as brewed in far away 1993 in the back of the Old House of Richards Building in West Marin hamlet of Forest Knolls right next to little Lagunitas. It is way better. Back then the beer tasted like broccoli and kerosene and the carbonation ate right through and drained your stomach into your gut...

Wonderful aroma and taste, we should not talk about. It is heavenly good. The aftertaste is good and will never end in your mouth. Buy this beer immediately!

En bra sommardryck. Skulle nog passa till grillat eller stark mat. Bra beska men blir lite tråkig i längden.

Pours yellow gold, brief but ample white head. Nose is citrus and pine, with a hint of earthiness. Taste is noteable for its immediate presence, not overpowering, not harsh, but from the instant it hits the tongue, the fun begins. As it plays on the tongue it goes through a variety of tastes. It has a touch farmhouse ale, both in the aroma and the taste. Nice balance, good mouthfeel for a pale ale, medium body, long finish. It evolves over time in the glass. Overall, it’s hard for me to pin down why, but it is a substantial beer, with a subtle but complex character.

Reviewed 3/7/13. 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear golden color. The head is a one finger white shade not too out of the ordinary for the style - lowish retention, nice creaminess, good bit of lacing on the glass.

S: It smells like a Lagunitas beer: grapefruity and herbal Simcoe hops abound. No, not nearly as much as Sucks, but still enough to wake the nostrils up. There’s also a lemony component here, too. As it sits in the glass, it actually becomes reasonably malty, with biscuit and bread notes.

T: An initial salvo of grapefruit, lemongrass, pine, and sourdough bread counterbalancing suggest this one’s actually full of Centennial. Maltiness surges upwards on the finish, with a faint lemon zest bitterness to it. This one is all about balance without any craziness - too often, I find a lot of Centennial-hopped beers to be somewhat harsh (Founders Centennial IPA being a good example), but this one is really pleasant.

M: Crisp and light, which is a feature I always love in pale ales. A mild syrupy linger accumulates after many sips; luckily it doesn’t weigh down the palate excessively. Carbonation is about what I expect.

O: Lost in Sucksamania is this rock-solid pale ale. Yes, it tastes like many other hoppy offerings from Lagunitas - but when they’re all really good-to-fantastic, who cares? A great ’lunch’ beer.

BlackHaddock (7777) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2013
12 Fl Oz bottle 7 Feb 2013: on the ferry from San Francisco to Sausalito. Had to ask for a glass!

Golden to pale amber body with a good white head.

Fruity nose: mixed bag of said fruits, citrusy and mango with apple blossom. Slight malty aroma in the smell as well.

Hops fill the flavours in the mouth: mild malts arrive but leave again before a dry bitter finish.

Medium strenghted body and feel to the brew: a little on the fizzy side but pleasant enough and easy to drink. Passing Alcatraz as I drank the beer made it even better.

Pours a clear light orange with a small off white head which fades to very little lacing. Aroma is if citrus, pine, herbal grass, sweet malts, tropical fruits, and some light caramel. Taste is of citrus (grapefruit and lemon), resiny pine, tropical fruits (mainly mango), sweet honey malts, and some caramel. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, crisp, refreshing finish. Overall, a very tasty and drinkable APA.

3.6
Senap (747) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 En frisk öl med lagom beska. Sällskapsdryck en varm sommarkväll eller till kryddig asiatisk mat.
