Censored is an American Amber Ale brewed by Lagunitas Brewing Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip pint glass from a bottle.
Pours a crystal-clear amber with an inch-thick cap of dense off-white foam that offers modest retention. Gobs of sticky lace cling to the glass.
Aroma mixes piney and floral hops with hints of orange peel and toffee.
Light bready malt initiates a palate that transitions quickly to hoppy flavors of lemon, orange, and pine. Finishes with a bite of spicy hops. A mild caramel sweetness balances the flavor.
The ale sits nicely on the tongue with a medium-light body and ample carbonation.
Censored has a well balanced, clean palate along with being refreshing and easy to drink. Its bright hoppy taste does lean more towards a red ale than amber, but it’s still pretty enjoyable.
