COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dos Costas Oeste is the result of a collaborative brewing effort between Cigar City Brewing of Florida’s Gulf (West) Coast and The Bruery of Placentia, CA. Like the breweries involved with its creation this ale cheerfully meanders off the beaten path. Join us in celebrating this West Coast to West Coast collaboration. Aged on Spanish Cedar Spirals

Christian (11218) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2012
Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Golden with a lasting white head. Spicy aroma with lots of black and pink pepper and a touch of wood. Dry and spicy flavour with lots of pepper and citrus character, and distinct cedar wood, especially in the late aftertaste

thewolf (11192) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2012
Tap @ CBC, 2012.
Pours clear yellow with a small, creamy, white film head. Aroma has lots of pepper - really accentuated by the wood. Doughy malts, grassy. Very fresh. Medium carbonation, lovely dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is initially malty, doughy, then turns to wonderfully sharp white pepper. Pine bitterness and crisp finish. Lovely, and amazing what that cedar does to enhance flavours and aromas.

brokensail (11089) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a huge white head. Smells like the inside of a cigar box. Just overwhelming cedar aroma that drowns out pretty much everything else. Maybe a little malt and yeast. The flavor is just as bad. Overdone cedar along with some pepper, ginger, and maybe a touch of malt sweetness and yeast. Not a fan of this one at all.
