Lagunitas Lucky 13

Type: red ale
Origin: Petaluma, California
Price: $4.49 per 22 oz

This beer definitely did me in on Saturday. It was the third beer of the day, and definitely the most potent. At 8.56% ABV, you know there is trouble ahead. And honestly, thats probably the only reason I bought this beer. That and the hot girl on the bottle. I'm a sucker for brilliant advertising. Even though I was already drunk when I had this, the flavors were so distinct that I was still able to pick them out. The easiest way to describe this is cherry cough syrup with a hearty hop balance in the background. The aromas are also dominated by the cherry cough syrup. As negative as this sounds, I actually really liked this and would definitely drink it again.
