Lagunitas Lucky 13.alt
From Lagunitas – From the first day of the first mash of the first recipe in the first brewhouse in the first space to this oasis 13 years on the road; We have worked hard to walk in the footsteps of our hero brewers- The Noble Brewer of the planet’s only legal Steam Beer, and Oregon’s Rebel Brewer from Newport. Thirteen years down the road, we have found our own voice as brewers but our admiration for the Great Ones has not dimmed one bit. If we walked well down the hero’s path ourselves, perhaps we too have been an inspiration for others. Beer is a Bronze Age business and we feel honored to have left our footprints on it’s path into history, at the same time leaving our flavors on your buds. Thanks for your trust over the years and we hope you enjoy this specialty breweed Hi-Gravity Auburn offering.
Lagunitas Brewing – Lagunitas Lucky 13.alt – 22 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 8.9% abv.
Appearance: Pours an amber gold with a white film.
Aroma: Candied orange and grapefruit and cherry. Sweet malt.
Taste: Simple syrup, bread crust and (thankfully) American hops and a touch of alcohol.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied. Fizzy.
Overall: As you might be able to tell by my notes, this was a very sweet beer. There is some nice hops in there, but still too sweet to drink more than one of in a session. I like the original Lucky 13 a lot, so just know going into this beer, that is is very different.
