look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Cooper/orange with light yellow at the edge.

S: Mild malt with sweet nutty character, hints of honey and nuts.

T: Full, rich malty flavors, bitter on back of palate, but pleasant . Right amount of carbonation to balance all the flavors. Lingers with nice mouthfeel, crisp refreshing.

O: Quite nice with just the right weight and depth of flavor.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, light orange brown colored with a short tan head that dissipates quickly leaving little lacing, clear

S: malty smells with a nutty quality, pecan, walnut, honey, light floral hops

T: quite pleasant malt up front, more nut flavors, pecan, sweet up front with hints of honey, caramel, finish dries as hop flavor comes out, a nice balance

M: medium bodied, alcohol well hidden, lingering malt finish with dryness from hops, lively carbonation

O: I was mostly intrigued by how this beer got it's name. It's a funny story buried in the Lagunitas website. Beer itself isn't bad, but doesn't really stand out either. It is well balanced with fairly subtle flavors.

12oz Bottle from Bear World Waterton NY for 3$

Appearance - Clear copper colour with an average size fizzy beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes. There were also some particles floating around.

Smell - Hops, malts, caramel

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel and hops. There is also some faint dark fruit flavour and a bit of a peppery/hoppy spiciness. It ends with a malty sweet aftertaste.

Overall – Good.. but pretty boring. I know it's not really an exciting style, but I figured Lagunitas would put a spin on it. Not something I'd pick up again.
