Lagunitas Censored Rich Copper Ale AKA The Kronik

The Censored Rich Copper Ale from Lagunitas is an American Amber Red Ale with an ABV of 6.7% and IBU of 39. It was also the subject of my latest beerventure which you can see here. Pouring a nice coper color this ale did lead with a nice malt flavor, and the taste received was somewhat smooth. However, overall it didn’t do too much for me to really stand out but was still solid enough as a good beer. My Untappd rating for this one was 3.25, and feel free to check out my video here for further details.

Brewer Notes:

Malty, Roasty, and Deceptively Smooth

This Amber-esque ale gets more of a cocoa-toasty flavor from the use of chocolate malts.

ABV: 6.70
IBU: 39
O.G.: 1.06
Availability: Unlimited Release
Introduced: 2001
Pair With: Kronik Chili with four fried chickens…and dry white toast

Originally called the Kronik, this beer was censored by the federal label-approving agency, the BATF -- they claimed the word had some sort of Marijuana reference. We slapped a "Censored" sticker on it as a joke and they accepted it. Check out the UPC code...

With a name so scandalous we couldn’t put it on a beer label... the (Censored) Ale is a Malty, Roasty, & Deceptively Smooth, Rich Copper Ale that tackles dry mouth… Take a tech-taste in, #MouthFeels: Censored. Cheers!
