Lagunitas Lucky 13 is a hazy red-amber ale with small particles floating in it. It has a foamy, eggy, pale yellow head that has good retention and leaves nice lacing. The aroma is of strong, sweet malt. There are notes of resin and herb and a faint hint of cinnamon. It's pretty full bodied, smooth and syrupy. The finish is slightly gritty. The flavor is quite sweet. The bitterness is pretty good, so it balances it out. The aftertaste is long and sweet. It's a little sweet for my taste, but it's solid and good for sipping.

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
