3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. It pours a rather dark orange/gold color with an off white head. The aroma is bready malt, a little dark fruit and floral hops. The flavor is caramel, bread, and some fruity/floral hops in the finish. Low carbonation. A bit weak on the palate for such a big beer. Ho hum.

3.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lost Dog is a mix of bitter pale and maltiness with citrusy hop notes. Not much aroma but pour and amber color is nice. Not too bad but a little too much sweetness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Hazy reddish brown brew with small tan head. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is dominated by sweet malt, a little caramel and some bitter near the finish, but still ends very sweet. The ABV is well hidden.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber-auburn color. Aroma is much sweeter than I expected. Very malty on the nose. Flavor is much of the same. Whoa nelly this has some malty sweetness that I didn’t expect for a 7.2% ale. You can definitely taste a flutter of the hop background but this is all kinds of sweet crystal malt going on here. Very nice.

We had this at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in the VIP section.Rob usually really likes reds, but he wasn’t a fan of this one. I, on the other hand, thought it was excellent. It was one of my favorite beers of the night, and we tried about 60!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flavorful---not bland! Cloudy amber color with good head. Grainy malt flavor with rather unique, slightly sour finish. Solid body for an amber.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours cloudy, orange-amber with a short, yellow-tan head.
Scent is slightly tart caramel malt....bread.
Flavour of toffee malt, bready..
A little sour, musty, bitter finish.
Ok, but a slightly odd taste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a typically carbonated hazy light red brown colored body. The aroma was malty and musty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish malty aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma of alcohol, hops, mild caramel malt. Hazy redish amber appearance. Flavor has too much going on up front. Sour, bready malt, finishes bitter and lingers far too long. Don’t see this as a summer brew at all,..may have been a bad batch.
