The beer arrived in standard Lagunitas packaging consisting of 12 oz. brown bottles with the ubiquitous dog on the label. The pint glass I used was barely enough to contain the foamy head and the clear copper colored liquid. The smell was quite mild and sweet, with almost no hint of the hops typical in the offerings of this West Coast brewery. The taste was crisp, caramelized, and airy . The hops showed up as spicy overtones and citrus peels and were quite a bit more prominent than first hinted at by the smell, but the malt was clearly in charge of the whole taste. This was quite a deliberately balanced offering. As a result this beer felt full but subtle, and effect that is rarely seen in these days of ever bigger creations. This is one hell of a drinkable beer for being 7.7% ABV strong. Superb in most aspects, except for that dull smell.

Formally "the Kronik", this Amber Ale is poured from a 12oz. stub bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A - marketed as a "Rich Copper Ale", and there is truth in the marketing; penny red-orange, hardly any carbonation and a finger & 1/2 of fluffy cream head. Head retention is excellent with beautiful lacing all the way down.
S - rich caramel malts, toasted marshmallow, pine, and very light hops.
T - translates from the aroma well; not sharp at all; rich but not decadent.
M - smooth and creamy; very drinkable; a good session beer.
O - great beer, and one of my favorites of the style. A go-to during the week, and a great paring beer for many styles of cooking.
