In this special beer blog, we are going to get into a brew from Lagunitas that was brewed back in 1995. It is called Equinox Pale Oat Ale. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to this West Coast Craft Brewery. Let us get into this Pale Ale.
It has a clear golden color with overly constant white head. The carbonation is through the roof. The smell has a citrus notes. The taste has a bready to earthy notes with citrus notes. The aftertaste has a dry biscuits finish. It is extremely drinkable.
Here is a description from their website (www.lagunitas.com):
Equinox Pale Oat Ale |Lagunitas Brewing Company
A creamy, pale oat ale hopped up with a huge charge of Equinox and Simcoe hops for a piney, eucalyptus, cedar, sprucey, forest blast. First brewed in 1995… brewed today in a time of change.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, I am a huge fan of this west coast craft brewery. I am always looking for something new to come out from Lagunitas Brewery. I like it. I don’t love it. It is different. I know people back then did not get it. I believe the Midwest craft beer drinker in general still do not get it. Chicago might be a different than the rest. I have a hard time finding their beers but it has been getting easier after a year moving back to Michigan. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
