Lightrider (344) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle into an ale glass. Aroma is on the low end but it?s a malt and caramel. Pour is a dark honey with a thick head that dies fast. Taste is a pure malt with little hop but it?s crisp. Finish is warm. Not a bad ale, not to heavy. Good on a hot summer day I?m sure.

Borresteijn (6319) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2016
On tap at Jopen Proeflokaal Amsterdam. Clear amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of peas, caramel, leaves. Flavour is likewise, a bit grainy, light bitterness. Light bodied. Why import this? Weak amber ale.

Clear amber pour with a creamy off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, malt, some light nuts. Taste is malty, caramel, with a mild sweetness, and slight hop presence. Reminds me of a caramel chew. Body is medium, with soft carbonation. Balanced easy drinker.

theOptimator (363) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Aroma is mild citrus hopping and very mild caramel. Appearance is copper clear with medium off white frothy head. Taste is caramel and light citrus hopping aroma followed by a clean hop bitterness and a tiny hint of chocolate. Palate is medium light and crisp. Overall a refreshing beer. Not too unique but well brewed and a great drinker. Enough flavor to be good but light enough to be very sessionable. Chocolate flavor hiding in the background adds a little depth.

12 oz bottle in Tamarindo, CR. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy, off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of caramel malt, ripe fruit and hint of hops. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is caramel malt, herbal hops, cherries and some coffee. Finish is long and dry. Nice brew, I was surprised to find it in desperate place.

drjoeng (816) - SINGAPORE - DEC 27, 2015
5%ABV. Amber Ale. Tapped out a deep amber. 16şSRM. 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!
