Lagunitas Censored Copper Ale
This is the first beer I have tried from Lagunitas, the Censored Copper Ale. True to its name, it pours a copper color with a thin white head. Smells of malt, some warm spice, maybe even a hint of vinegar. The vinegar, thankfully, isn't in the taste. Malt and spice, bitter hops, a hint of orange, some sweet grain, then bitter hops again. A lot going on in just one taste!
The more I'm having of this, the more I like it. It's complex, yet balanced. Full and aggressive, but not overpowering.
If you're wondering about the censored, it's actually called Kronik. Apparently that isn't OK, but hemp beers are.
I'd do this again
