Served on-tap in a Bells tulip at Global Brew in O'Fallon, IL. Nice tap pour that presents a clear amber/red body with a small one-finger tan head that runs right up to the top of the glass. Light lacing. Looks very good.

Nice aroma of hops and sweet malt that blend together nicely. Citrus hop note, leaning toward grapefruit, and bready malt notes. Not overpowering but inviting.

Definitely like the flavor of this beer. Although it comes across a little sweeter than I would have expected from the aroma, it's not cloying. Tasty citric hop notes blend nicely with the sweet malt. Might be the best amber ale flavor I've ever had, probably due to the extra presence of the tasty hops.

Medium thickness in the mouthfeel with no notice of the alcohol. I enjoyed this very much and asked for a second serving. I've never seen this in bottles but will start looking for it now. Highly recommend.

Pours a nice amber color with about 2 fingers of head. The smell is wonderful. Hops are abundant and certainly some citrus notes. Being an IPA drinker, I loved the presence of hops. The taste was excellent. Smooth with a nice bitterness to it. The taste leaves you craving more. As you drink, it leaves a nice lacey finish around the glass. Definitely the best amber ale that I have had. It's actually going down a little too smoothly! Overall, another great beer from Lagunita's. Well done.

Poured a dark tea color in a Pretty Things glass- similar to a snifter. Less than a 1/2 finger head.

The aroma is mild citrus.

The mouth feel is not over-carbonated- which can detract from the tasting experience of this style.

The taste is excellent- citrus, mostly grapefruit and very hoppy- in the classic San Diego, Lagunitas style.

The finish is bitter, yet balances with the taste profile- it is not overdone, and melds with the hops, fruit , and malt.

This may become one of my favorite Red Ales.
