Look: A true, deep copper body that sat somewhere between translucent and opaque. Residual off-white head. I notice some yeast suspension as well.

Smell: Fruit punch aroma, sweet, sugary. An interesting vanilla aroma came in towards the end.

Taste: Strikes a nice balance between bready malts and citrusy hops. Orange peel and caramel notes added a wonderful depth to the profile. As with other Lagunitas brews, this beer favors hops over malts, but not as heavily as their IPA or Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale.

Feel: Lightly carbonated and bitter, but not dry

Overall: After reading other reviews, I wasn't expecting very much from this brew, but was pleasantly surprised! A little too sweet for my taste, but combined with a malt complexion, Censored has enough going for it to help round out the hoppy character. One of my new favorite Ambers!

As ambers/reds are my favorite style, I had to give this a try. It's not bad and you can taste the higher alcohol content versus a beer of the same type like Avalanche or Fat Tire, but this beer is wonderful on the palate.
