COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"At left coast Brewing Co., we pride ourselves on our seasonal line up, with Una Mas amber being our one for the Spring. This dark copper lager(Ale in Texas) is light in body and bursting with flavor. Styled after the popular amber lagers south of the border, Una Mas is the perfect Spring brew. Small amounts of dark roasted malts add a rich color without making it thick or chewy. Munich malt adds a rich toasty finish to the brew. Una mas will leave you wanting more."

This lager is crisp and clean on the palate. It is deep golden and medium bodied. The malt taste dominates, and the hops shine through in more subtle ways, making this a flavorful lager.

It appears that Left Coast has changed this beer somewhat as it’s now (according to the 22 oz. bottle I got from Albertson’s in San Diego) 6.4% ABV and a *spring* seasonal. It’s still described as an amber lager which it appears to be. Nice clean cereal malt aroma with floral hops accompanying it. Orange/tan body with a thick white head of very fine bubbles (almost looks like nitro). Taste is lightly sweet with caramel and a very faint bubblegum in the background. Light, piney and floral hop flavors balance this out nicely. Roasted malt and a light bitterness are left behind. Definitely reminds me of a German style lager with the mostly malt dominated body and some estery flavors in the background, but with a West Coast flair. A very enjoyable and drinkable brew for anytime of the year.

StefanSD (2118) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUN 7, 2011
650 ml bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a dark copper color with a small beige head that soon recedes to a film. The aroma is minimal with hay, dust, and some sweet spices. The flavor is something of a malt bomb with multi-layered grains, toffee, caramel, biscuit, nuts, pears, rock candy and apricots. The palate is thick and smooth with lively carbonation. The finish is long and dry. Overall: I think that I have an old bottle, as the aroma is pretty much gone, also zero mention-worthy hops in the flavor, but the taste was wonderful and complex. Must try a known fresh sample some day.

Metalchopz (2263) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Enjoyed at the Pink Taco in Vegas. Pours a deep amber colour with a foamy warm cap, sloppy lacing and a nice coat tops the brew. Fruity malt nose (orange, plum) with caramel notes. Starts off with a rich malt and ends with a bitter finish. Mild dry mouthfeel. Quite a nice brewed amber ale overall.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2013 ~Pours an amber color with small lasting head.4 ~Light malty aroma with some spicy hops. Smells crisp. 6 ~Toasty malty flavor followed by a light bitterness. 5 ~Light feel, dry, bitter finish 3 ~Easy to drink would be refreshing on a hot day. The bitter taste is a bit strange. I dont think I will be saying "una mas" after this one. Not bad though. 12 Total Score 3.0 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ know ive had this before. I heard about it winning Best Of Show at California State Fair and had been wanting to try it. Stumbled across it on draft in Vegas and thought it was quite tasty. Decided to buy a bottle and give it another rating now that my appreaciation for different beers has improved. ~ Strong toasty bready biscuity malt aroma. Clean with light spicy hop chraracter. ~Pours a brownish copper color with quickly disappearing head. ~Strong toasty malt flavor, very bready nutty. Clean with spicy hop. ~medium bodied with medium CO2, balanced malty hoppy finish. ~A good beer for sure, but not really worthy of a BOS IMO and I usually am routing for the less popular styles to win.
