Bomber. Brown color, but its fairly pale, actually - not light, but not very opaque. Very clear, I guess, is what Im trying to say. Nose is malty, chocolaty, and light pine/floral hops. The hops, mostly the floral variety, are forward in the flavor, preceding clean bready malt and a light chocolate note. A very clean beer - both the flavors and visuals are clear and precise. Not the type of beer Id normally pursue, as Im not generally a huge fan of brown ales, but this is very enjoyable. Lagunitas once again makes an interesting and engaging brew. Definitely not the biggest or craziest beer out there, but its very enjoyable.

650ml. Not as dark as I thought! Picked up the glass and a dark copper-amber. Lasting off-white foam. Malt, woody hops and alcohol scent. Tasty alcohol and spruce. Tasty malt.

The aroma is citrus and perfume hop. Tangerine with a roasted amber malt backbone. Flowery with rye bread. Balanced; excellent. The appearance is ruby red, hint of orange. Massive head, millions of tiny bubbles that move slooowwwwly. The flavor is burnt dark stoutish malt taste, but with a sweet hop (tangerine, blood orange). The malt dominates until the swallow. Aftertaste is beautifully bittersweet. Feels creamy, oily. A very malty beer, but one that doesnt sacrifice hops. Roasted at first, but with a sweet respite. Top shelf.

22oz bottle. Poured a deep and dark amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of pine, nuts, caramel, and malty. Tastes of caramel, chocolate, lighter roastiness, and some floralness.

Yet another high quality,low priced gem from Lagunitas. Soft gentle hopping in aroma,pretty sure you have another IPA type brew here,taste however is surpriseSlightly sweet malting,lighty fruity,mixed with definite light piney hops,body hardly makes medium,but overall,very enjoyable,even is summer. You want to have a stronger brew when its hot,and you dont want to feel like your drinking syrup,this one would be perfect

Loved it. Wonderful pine and citrus aroma with a nice malty bready backbone and thats just what it smells like. Pours a clear dark amber with a big long lasting head. Flavor is very complex starting with a sweet malty beginning and a very nice hop finsh. Very nice and dry with a very nice after taste. Brilliant as my English friends might say.

Hello California, send more Lagunitas to the East coast! Nice hoppy brown ale with props to Scotland. Sweet malt, caramel, hops, a wee bit of smoke, and a very nice palate, I could become addicted to this fine ale. After three or four of these, would be inclined to lift my kilt.

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2010
Bottle: The aroma is mostly dominated by grapefruit hoppiness along with light caramel, and a hint of pine. It pours a transparent reddish-brown with an inch tall off white head that fades a thick film within thirty seconds or so. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel with a hint of fruit in the background. The finish has moderate grapefruit and citrus notes and an increased fruit presence. The fruitiness in the finish becomes more prominent as it warms. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation and creamy mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2011 on tap. Kind of a weird one. nutty alc aroma, pours lighter than expected, clearruby red when held up to a light with an off white head. flavor is sweet brown aley, medium bodied. hops are throughout but not as bitter as expected. sweet malt flavor dominates, the hops are more there to balance than to shock. gets syrupy as it warms up. slight smokiness is noted and welcomed. alc burn is more than youd expect for almost 8%, made me think this beer was really huge. big hop finish. rough around the edges but fun

bottle poured a light cola brown color with a thin off white head. aroma has typical lagunitas hops, pine resins, citrus, thick brown malt, and some caramel sweetness. mouth feel is medium and is smooth on the tongue. flavor has a brown malted core, resins, pine, hefty citrus, and a nice bite on the finish. I personally really like the hops they throw in all there beers.
