    This beer is a lot lot Brown Shugga only watered down. The head is wimpier and shorter-lived, the body is lighter (about typical iced tea color, but a good deal lighter than I brew it). The aroma is lemon butter. The flavor is similar to the cakey, caramelly, butteriness of the Brown Shugga, but not as full or as complex. Still quite the pleasant example of the English Pale Ale style with just enough hops to be noticed. After tasting the Brown Shugga and this, if the rest of Lagunitas' beers are anything like this, this is not your typical West Coast brewery. This beer seems like it's being brewed in New England where these more subdued English-style ales are most common.

    Copper color. Small head. Aroma is cherry malts. A medium bodied English Pale Ale. Nice mild malts, nutty and slightly sweet. Hops are also milder and are slightly spicy. Well balanced. Smooth taste. Then there is this chocolate taste that comes out of nowhere. Very drinkable beer. This is a very different beer for Lagunitas and very non-west coastish. But I like it! Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. NICE beer.

    Clear copper colored brew, light bodied, w/ lots of interesting flavors. A nice malty aroma, leads into a bittersweet chocolate taste. A very quaffable beer

    beer poured a brilliantlly crystal clear bright brown colour..small frothy head..goes fast leaves a goodly sized lace on the glass though. For some reason the aroma in this beer seems subdued a bit''a litle malt..some roastedness..but its faint. However the taste is pretty strong and good..nice chocolate malts..some good residual hop bitterness near the end. Feels good and creamy on my palate..nice enjoyable beer for sure. Pretty drinkable ale..its a very good "seasonal".
