4.34/5 rDev +5.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
I had this beer last night on draft with my buddies. It was recommended by my friend and he’s sometimes off with his suggestions but boy did he get this one right. I already like Lagunita’s beers so I said eh lets give it the old college try.
A – Had a dark amber/red color as you would expect. I didn’t notice the frothy head that I was expecting.
S – I noticed some caramel and some other citrusy flavors that really balanced the hops very well.
M – For a strong beer this one didn’t taste like it. There was some alcohol sensation but overall it didn’t overpower the flavors in the beer.
T – The balanced hops make it for a great taste.
Overall this was one of my favorites. I will be getting more soon.

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.
