So I don't think I've ever put a review up on an Amber Ale because really, for my palate, not a lot of amber's impress me. They're all pretty basic to the style, which still is of my least favorite. Of course leave if to Lagunitas to make a red so delicious I just had to tell you about it. Still that great bitterness from Lagunitas but also a sweeter, fruity hopiness. Nice, dark copper color and a boozy nose. Great strong malt backbone too. Medium to full mouth-feel. This is also basically a copy of the very first beer from Lagunitas from '93 so it's a time capsule in a glass. At 7.8% abv and only coming in 22oz. bottles this beer will keep you warm in the soon to come colder months. Pair it with the company of your dog. Cheers! -Dave
