Lumpy Gravy

22 oz bomber cracked by Dave at The Brick Store, Decatur, GA, USA. Subsequently in many samples after that.
The usual Frank Zappa crazy label. Pour reveals a deep, mahogany, rich brown body with some red highlights. Head is good, plenty of thickish lace. Sticky.
Malts are large and smooth with a good bit of residual sweetness. A touch of hop bitterness in the finish but not much to speak of.
Smooth and satisfying mouthfeel. Nice brew. Not necessarily what I was expecting from Lagunitas as the hops were toned down and this was very nicely balanced. Is this really from the West Coast??!!
Very drinkable and typically “Americanized” Brown Ale (i.e. much larger than its English origin in most respects).
