Lagunitas WTF

Lagunitas_WTF.JPGI was in the mood for something new. This was it. Lagunitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot is labeled a 'jobless recovery ale'. Originally slated to be the 2010 Recovery Ale, but since our economic recovery is yet to come, Lagunitas has just said WTF. The dark color and full body are impressive. Aside from that nothing really stands out about this ale. I don't mean that is a bad way either. It's pretty much a perfect brown, slight hops, with just a little more German maltiness than hopiness. It's very balanced, like a big beer, without the big. Unfortunately I only enjoyed half the bottle before I managed to knock my glass over doing dishes. That was not the way I would have wanted to finish this one, that's for sure. This is quite possibly one of the best ales I have had this year. To be honest I am not a big fan of browns, but I am a big fan of this brew. There are just so many crappy ales on the shelves labeled 'brown' ales. I think I could safely state this is the best brown ale I have ever had. Granted there are a lot of browns out there that I haven't tried. If anything comes along that beats Lagunitas, I will be sure to let you know.
