    Here's yet another quality $4 bomber from these guys. Pours a deep amber color with a thin foamy off-white head that sticks around. Aroma is plums, caramel and an ever so slight trace of alcohol. The taste is floral hops, fruits, a little sugary, with sweet caramel malt. Finishes slightly bitter and dry. This isn't quite as good as the Lucky 13 I had last week but it's still very tasty.

    Lots of molasses, brown sugar in the nose, and the flavor. Nice deep redish brown body with good head and retention. Thick in the mouth, sweet in the flavor with fairly clean finish. One trick pony.

    Pours with a clear, deep amber body topped by a medium thick head with good lacing. It’s sweet and malty wiht a slight candy sugar note, a little tomato and a hint of hops. Medium bodied, smooth and a hint dry.

    Pours a dark reddish brown colour with a medium sized off white head. Aroma is noticeably nutty, light biscuit malts. I found the taste to be very pleasent, not that stroner- a lighter mouthfeel with semi sweet flavors of trail mix, carmel and peanut butter.

    It looks Frank Zappa has risen from the grave once again and combined forces with the good people at Lagunitas to create a memorable brew and not just because of the catchy name. beer looks a yummy dark clear copper with a large thick tan colored head. Flavor seems light and unexpectedly bitter. Aroma is slightly metallic and has and has a remarkably similar smell to root beer with mild alcohol notes. Lots of thick malts with hints of chocolate, prunes, brown sugar, some metallic flavor and a good hop presence making the flavor a little crisp. Overall it seems sweet but leaves a mild lingering bitterness in my mouth. The beer is nicely balanced to be full flavored yet crisp and easy drinking with enough complexities to keep it interesting. This is by far the most enjoyable brew I’ve ever had from Lagunitas.

    Poured out a clear deep copper brew with a good sized, fairly thick tan head that sticks around for a bit and leaves random lacing. For whatever reason this beer went straight to my head. It's not like I'm drinking on an empty stomach or something - I did eat 4 huge bowls of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and hour ago. This is an odd beer. The aroma is fairly unique it seems and I'm sure my description won't show that so you'll need to find out and discover where this beer thinks it's going for yourself. Caramel and toasted malts, nutty, and somehow these malts blend in with the slight but dark fruitiness to give out a fairly fragrant smell. The taste is a let down or not depending if you want something different or not. Unfortunately the flavour doesn't hit home with me: big malts {INTERLUDE - if one pours this beer from a foot above the rim of the glass it makes a volcano of foam..... try it!} More huge malts, in fact the malts are really dominant. The more buzzed I get the more I like this. The alcohol taste weakens when this warms... I'm not really sure how much alcohol can be found as I think the unwelcome presence of the hop mixture is screwing with me. HAIL NEVERMORE! Malts get close to that burnt taste. Some fruit flavour (unsweetened grapefruit and and dark fruit that may just be an effect of the massive malt content messing with my tastebuds) and the hops give out a nasty flavour on the finish. Mouthfeel is decent I guess. Smoothish sometimes. More than medium bodied. Fluctuating in strength ick bitterness. Decent carbonation. I could give this a 2.5 or a 3.5. I'm probably drunk - using the BeerPal Chat as my personal unread blog to discuss Love Bites by Judas Priest, Joe Perry from Journey, socks and sandals with myself. Bloggers are pathetic losers. Die.

    Bottled. Ruby red colour, small beige head. Aroma is hops, caramel, some grass and mild notes of nuttyness. Flavour is bigtime hops and grassyness. Some mild notes of toffee.

    A dark amber appearance with a rather large head. The aroma contains a hint of citrus but plenty of dark fruit and caramel. The flavor is quite malty with hints of chocolate and raisins. Some citrus in the background. Overall this one is a confused beer and stuck in the middle of the hop and malt world with not much complexity. Its pretty good anyway.

    I wanted to like it more than I did. I had high hopes becase of Kill ugly radio. Oh Well. The mouthfeel on this beer is awful. I think if the body and the way it sits on your tounge was different, this beer would be so much better. I hoppy Brown if you will... not thier best effort

    Color is a beautiful clear mahogany reddish-brown with a fine-bubbled and pale tan head. Aroma is malty with hints of spices. The rich, very malty flavor has a spicy undertone and a noticeable hop component. Finish is smooth with just a little bitterness.
