bottled on December 2003. Had an okay aroma of hops but overall it was very faint. Looked a golden color with lot of haze throughout the glass. Small fizzy head that broke up completely. What a nasty ass flavor beer and thats maybe becuase its so old. The only things i do taste are a flat toffee and caramel malt. I hated this beer but its my own fault for buying the bottle without checking the date. At least lost coast labels the date.

Looks brown when poured, but is in fact red-amber. Smells of hop and fruit (i’m getting pears for some reason). Flavoring is light, yet lifting. Hops burst through in the aftertaste. Much better than I expected and great for its style.

Pour is a dark red with a small white head. Aroma is malt aroma and some oily hops. Flavor is a malty caramel with a touch of hops for a nice mouthfeel. Maybe a bit watery but good for a session.

Hazy amber with a small off white head. Aroma was malts, toffee and a hint of tea at the end. Slightly sweet caramel malt taste, without much of a pronounced hop presence. Soft carbonation. If this was set in front of me at a blind tasting along side certain bocks, I would be hard pressed to positively identify it as an amber ale.

Had a somewhat roasted malt aroma. Amber body with tan head that settled on top of beer. Sweet flvor of the mats with some hops comming in on the finish. Easy to drink, a decent beer.

mjg74 (2973) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 23, 2005
Pours amber/orange color. Mucho sediment floating around. Sweet hoppy aroma. Caramel and malt aromas lingering. Malts dominate the flavor up front. A little bit of hoppiness as well. Kind of sweet as well.

desurfer (1279) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2005
Amber body with no head. Aroma is lightly citrusy, with some sweet maltiness. Flavor is dominated by grapefruity hops, very nicely done, balanced somewhat by a sticky maltiness. Well, it’s really not all that balanced, but I like it that way! Nice quaffer.

bottle. Amber/copper translucent color with a small off-white head, slightly hoppy aroma. Palate is slightly lacking fortitude but other than this the beer had a wonderful balance. Well hopped for the Amber/Brown ale style. Light caramel malt. A great session beer as it has a parallel modest yet vibrant finish. I’m not usually a fan of this style but I quite enjoyed this one. Good Amber ale!
