Another excellent Lagunitas...not what I expected, but in a good way! A thin pour to coppery opaque honey brown with a full finger of off-white head & some decent lace. Aromas of malty vanilla, almost a Goetze cow-tail candy, but rounded by some hints of pepper & hops. The mouthfeel is creamy but not too heavy, with good roasted caramel malt and a bit of hop that leaves a strawberry aftertaste. Quite nice & unexpected. A bit sweet, but not too tacky; a bomber is sufficient although some might go for more.

Gotta love the label graphic - nicely done
Looks like this was bottled about April 23rd 2013, so it's got a lot of age on it now! Bought at the end of last September and mistakenly aged. That might explain why it came across as more of an ESB than an American amber.
Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Samuel Adams nonick.
a: Nearly clear dark amber/copper with an inch plus offwhite head which receded to rocky surface foam and dense lacing.
s: Mild caramel malt.
t; First impression is its pleasing silky smoothness, followed by a nice caramel malt and hops balance. Sweet to dry finish. Its 8.65% ABV is well concealed.
m: Medium, silky smooth.
o: A very enjoyable and satisfying ESB-style ale, highly sippable and savory in texture and overall taste. I'd buy this again anytime of year. However I'll need to try a much fresher bottle to confirm this.
Serving type: growler
