In this beer blog, we are going to get into another brew from Lagunitas Brewery. It is their Brown Shugga’. This is their 2014 edition. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this west coast craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know Lagunitas Brewery. Let us get into this beer.
It has a nice copper to bronze color with a small white bubble head color. The smell has a sweet malty to alcohol notes. The taste has a sweet malty to slight but faded alcohol notes. The aftertaste has a dry hoppy bitter finish. It is kind of drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.lagunitas.com):

Closing, this is a pretty unique beer. It has a nice color and appearance. The packaging is a nice just like all the rest of their beers. It is pretty hard to explain this beer. I know that I love it. I look forward to every year it is released. There is some nice malty notes along with some alcohol notes. It is pretty drinkable for the ABV. I highly recommend this beer. This is one of their best beers. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
