lil bitter aftertaste, dark brown, was definitely better than i thought it was going to be considering it was $3.99/6pk

Bottle: sweet malt, cooked fruits, caramel and a bit of honey in the aroma, flavor is weaker with more citrusy herbal hops and a bit of hay, pretty good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2010
From my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a small tan head that lingered and left some lacing. The aroma was faint tangy, malty and a bit vegetal. The flavor was tangy with a sour malty base that was a touch vegetal and had undertones of caramel, vague fruits and pecan. The finish was medium length tangy and malty. The body was smooth and moderately full. An easy drinking beer that is more pleasant to quaff than the individual elements would suggest. Pleasant.

jazz88 (2542) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 30, 2003
Bottle. A dark brown to mahogany color with a tan head. Very strong malt aroma with some brunt malt and caramel. Thin on the palate but leaves a nice malt aftertaste. I'm quite impressed with Coastal Fog given their connection with BevMo.

SDalkoholic (2124) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 27, 2005
A mildly hop juiced aroma, and a dark mahogany hue. Fluffy inch head that stays around through the drink and leaves behind some lace. I find the flavor of this beer so refreshing but it is pretty weak. Some citrus in there as well along with toasty bread background.

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle from the BevMo in Folsom, CA. Pours amber with a foamy off-white head. Smells malty. Maybe a little hop. Med body, or close. It has a certain nuttiness. If this were blind tasting, Iíd consider it a brown. Even seems to have a hint of chocolate. Ok ale, just not my preference.

crhensel (135) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Poured a rich amber with little head. Slight hops in the nose with a light malt as well. I was surprised to pick up some fruit and a little nuttiness too, making this a very interesting example of an amber ale. Overall very tasty and refreshing.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAR 27, 2005
(22 oz bottle: $2.59 at BevMo in La Jolla, CA) Certainly better than the pale ale, the Coastal Fog Amber features a lightly roasty maltiness, some light breadiness and a bit of mildly bitter hops for a flavorful, acceptably balanced beer. I appreciate the fact that this amber shows dry roastiness rather than the cheap, sugary, caramel maltiness that too often dominates many ambers. The same roasty, bready maltiness is evident in the nose. Medium body results in a nice, round mouthfeel. Typical amber color for the style is topped by, well, hardly anything, as a vigorous pour barely managed to rouse more than a few large bubbles that quickly subsided. Overall, Iím enjoying this beer quite a bit, and while itís not worthy of any best-in-show awards, itís certainly a capable beer that I wouldnít hesitate to buy again. Hopefully itíll have some nice head the next time.

zvikar (3370) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - OCT 28, 2010
Beer of the month club, pours amber with a small head, aroma of tangerine and litchi with notes of malt, flavor of baked dough with some nuts and relatively light bitterness for the American style, medium body, decent.

thirdeye11 (5484) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2010
(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) clear rich copper, film of white bubbles. Nose of candied oranges, rye, and caramel. Taste of light smoke, rye, umami, toasty grains of paradise.
