Lucky 13 is one of many Lagunitas limited releases that will have people clamoring for more. This red ale pours a very clear amber/ruby color, the head is off white and lingers for quite a while. The aroma has hints of hops but that is mostly smothered by the citrus and malt. The taste is where this one really shines, it starts with a light citrusy hop followed by a heavy malt flavor ending with a nice alcohol warmth that doesn’t overwhelm. The taste is very well balanced and is very drinkable while the bitterness and sweetness compliment each other well. Make sure not to down these too fast as they have a hefty 8.80% ABV but drinks like a beer with 5.0%. I give Lagunitas Lucky 13 9.3 pints out of 10. Remember these are only out for a short period of time so pick one up if you still can!
