look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance is a wonderful amber color with large pale head that laces down the glass as it slowly recedes.

Aroma is quite hoppy, with hints of some light fresh fruits ( apples, cherries, and pineapple). With a little bit more time it develops a fresh baked bread aroma, almost sourdough-esque, as it is a touch funky.

The slightly funky but delicious character persists into the taste, nice hops, presenting a more floral and fruity character than bitter character. But yes definite fresh baked sourdough bread. Into this finish the sourdough presists, and this next part might sound weird but it reminds me of a rabbit/ hamster/ gerbil food in its intense vegetable character on the finish. I oddly really enjoy it though that association does not sound great.

Mouthfeel is nice, it could be better though. Seems a touch watery, while it is very effervescent, it does not coat how I would like it too, it seems to just slide right off everything.

In short a very very good beer. Highly enjoyable!

Lagunitas Brewing Company - Lucky 13.alt - 1pt 6fl oz bottle

Look - Pours lighter amber with a foamy head. Good lacing. Hazy unfiltered with mostly standstill carbonation.

Smell - Sweet honey with a tinge of stinging malt.

Taste - Sweet carbonated tang (honey) with some slight hops at the end.

Mouthfeel - Smooth, sweetness fades just right. After that, malty alcohol rests on the tongue, but not overwhelming.

Overall - Great for its type I am sure. Not usually my preferred style but I'll try any Lagunitas. I suppose if you paired it with the right food it would be better suited, but I like a brew that is able to stand on its own, so that's how I judge them.
