3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
5%ABV. Amber Ale.
Tapped out a deep amber. 16ºSRM.
Nose has some sweet malty aroma. A hint of beery with some wet yeast.
Mouthfeel is sudsy. There is a rich palate of dark malt flavor with nutty richness suggesting Brazil nuts and walnuts, there are toffee, caramel and some butterscotch-like flavors at play as well. Very ful-bodied on the first go. Very impressive. Nice round body on the palate briefly suggesting stewed fruit.
Finish is clean.
I liked it on a very personal level and not in a way that is quantifiable, It makes the List for nebulous reasons. Just like you love that mangy, stringy, foul-tempered feline for no real good reason, Lost Coast’s brew effort grows on you for no really good reason. You just love it.
Food pairing: coffee pork ribs.
Goes on Favorites List!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thx! for sharing. Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Dark red amber, small tanned head. Nose is oily yoghurt in a bad way, white sugar, candy,… Taste is overly yoghurt heavy, milky, sugar, yeast, candy, caramel, light pine in the back. Milky yeast body. Far too bad yoghurt forward for my liking. Not a fan.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Surprised by the low ratings. This beer is well balanced with great flavor, solid on the nose, with a pleasant mouthfeel. This beer would pair with a number of lunch menu items: brats, veggie burgers, or just a good old American cheeseburger. The hotter it gets outside, the better it tastes. Balanced and not over-filling, so be ready to open up a second one. Another great value at a reasonable price-point from Lost Coast.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark amber red with a small white head. Head retention is poor. AROMA: yeast esters, malt, caramel, slight saison note, slight peppercorn, bread, orange and herbs. TASTE: malt, caramel, slight saison funk, bread, orange, slight hop bitterness, yeast, slight peppercorn, light herbs and very light citrus. I might be tasting one past its prime seeing how it’s 5/192015 and the brews was bottled nearly7 months ago on 10/31/2014. Will need to review with a fresher sample.
