Don’t judge a book by its cover or a beer by its first taste. I’ve had lots of beers that initially seem really good but don’t hold up. The “Censored” was the opposite. It is rare for me not to like a Lagunitas brew from the first mouthful but I did not like this one at first. This review is on my second bottle.

A clear copper/brown color, the head was big and shortened quickly as the bubbles on the outside went from fine and small to big and clear.

The smell contains apricots and nutmeg. Not quite a cobbler but close.

The flavor is dry and bitter with a apricot and plum on the edges for a nice balance. As it warms, the beer gets less bitter and sweeter.

I’m not sure why I didn’t like this one as much the first time but maybe I drank it too cold. That’s all I can figure. That was my bad. Bad me.

3.64/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Tasted On: 07-07-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: Gift from a friend

A: Beer is clear and copper in color, with a big head of offwhite. Shows very good head retention and a nice lace.

S: Aromas are malty — crystal and caramel malts, plus wheat bread. Smells like when I am steeping grain

T: The taste is semi-sweet from the malts, but there is also a dose of earthy/woody hops to add a light to moderate amount of bitterness.

M: Body is medium and the beer finishes with a balance of both hop bitterness and caramel malt notes.

O: Nothing too flashy here, but a good, balanced ale.

Thanks to Kirk for sharing!
