Lagunitas Brewing Co. I have a soft spot in my stomach for this place. My current staple beer is from here. The Czech style Pilsner. Good stuff. This week I sampled and shared a couple bottles of their Lucky 13. Its an American Amber- Red Ale. I really enjoyed it. The first sampling was the best because I was by
myself on the patio, so no distractions. I bought the first bottle a Bevmo. It only comes in the 22oz bottle. With an ABV of 8.9 I had to clear the schedule for the rest of the night. So here goes my reveiw. I started by pouring into a tulip glass. Look= It pours a clear cooper/orange color. It quickly gets a big 2 to 3 finger foam head. The head disapates fairly quickly down to 1 finger leaving a nice sticky lacing on the glass. Smell= sweet malty up front, Citrus, but Grapefuit like. Has some hoppyness. Taste= Again sweet hits me, citrus, piney then malty. a little boozey. Feel= medium thickness,good carbonation, a little prickley on the tongue. Dry finish but you do feel the heat of the Alcohol. Overall= Very drinkable! I was worried it would be too hoppy. I hit me well, leaning to the malty and sweeter side. I will put this one in my rotation. Prost!
