Six Beers Deep: Censored Copper Ale

Censored Copper Ale
Lagunitas Brewing Company
ABV: 6.75%

Conchita First: So this beer is one that I’ve avoided for a long time because quite simply, I tend to enjoy Lagunitas’s many seasonal offerings much more than I do their staple, year-round beers. They say they call it Copper Ale because of the color, but on that logic I’d call nearly every lager “urine.” Either way this beer is a treat. It’s technically an Amber Ale, but it has this interesting finish that sets it aside from the rest. There’s a nice combination of caramel and floral overtones that give it a rather unique combination. The hops hit you right in the front, and it leaves this thin mouth-feel that surprisingly makes this beer crisp and refreshing. Did I mention that’s it’s 6.75%?

Just a Second: So as my palate has adjusted to this beer I like it even more. In fact, if I remember what I’m doing later, I may go grab a second sixer of this stiff and tie one on. Of course, I am doing this by walking to Blondie’s and not drivign, as that would be something illegal and a thing that MADD would get, well, mad at me about. Yes, walking. Why the hell is this thing called Censored anyway? I mean, whatever. Oh, look, Google. Apparentely it was called Kronik, but the name was rejected because the feds thought it reeferred (get it, reefered) to marijuana. Psh, stupid feds. So if we legalize it, does that mean Lagunitas will give up this stupid gimiick?

Three is a Crowd: The thing aobut Lagunitas is that many of their beers are no t only high in alcohol content, but many are also high in hop content, swhich to be quite honest, isn’t my fave. But I like this beer, and it likes me. It likes me so much, we may road trip later. With a DD, of course.

Four me some more: I think it’d be funny if a bunch of tweekers stole of a baunkch of these and tried to sell it for scrap, cuz copper prices are ridiculaous right now, amiright? Oh man, I should be a comedian or something.

Pass the Five: I d8unno what Pass the five even means. i mean, what’s lagunitas even. I was going through safeway, and i saw some lagunitas, and they labelled it as “LOcal Product.” Really? This is brewed in Petaluma! Over 200 miles away! A truck brought it here. A truck running on Diesel. That should mean some thing to you foldlks.

Pixie Six: So what did we learn from all of this? Firstly, that my liver has become a piese of scar tissue solely for the sake of your aentertainment. Secondly, I really like writing this aritckle for you people. Secondley, Laguintaos makes some really good beer. Please don’t ask me to review Brown Shugga.
