2009 Correction Ale

With a few exceptions you can pretty much rely on Lagunitas to put together a solid, good value beer and this is NOT one of those exceptions.
22 oz bomber all but a drop goes into the Youngs, imperial pint glass.
Color is pretty striking and indeed, just plain pretty. A deep, golden orange with great clarity. Head is a touch disappointing though, as is the retention and lace. It gives the beer a bit of “thin” look. In relaity the mouthfeel is a notch below “good”.
Big C hops with a touch of citrus lime and grapefruit come down. A touch of orange peel, or is that the color playing tricks on my mind? Clean tasting beer but also enjoys a ligering, bitter, slight coinage finish and aftertaste – all well in check so enjoyable.
I like this beer since it has “American” written all over it but at the same time it doesn’t get silly in terms of its “over-the-topness”. Another Lagunitas solid offering – reliable beer from an American brewer with common sense.
