2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
340 ml bottle. From bierzwerg.de.
Dark reddish brown colour with small off-white head.
Dark malty aroma with bread, some spices and herbs and caramel. Slightly xmassy aroma. Flavour is fruity bitter hoppy with strong caramel malt and dark fruits. Extremely flat. East Coast Ale wasn’t East Coast and this certainly ain’t West Coast but this time West Coast was victorious.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[330ml bottle, Peckham’s Bruntsfield, Edinburgh] Pours with a thin lasting head with some nice lacing, substantial rising carbonation. Dark caramel colour, with a touch of red, plenty of haze from the bottle conditioning. The aroma is very malty, and so is the taste – dry, with little caramel or sweetness, the crystal malt wins out. It is very toasty, as a California common should be (if that was their intention), but not that woody – it’s a bit like a dunkel maybe. Straddling styles, it’s pretty drinkable

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Milder Malzantrunk mit anfänglichen Bitternuancen, die später von süßlichen Noten verdrängt werden. Die Malzigkeit wird erheblich dunkler, in Teilen wirkt sie verbrannt. Dazu kommt eine dezente Säuerlichkeit, die im Abgang aber wieder verschwindet. Etwas trocken, im Abgang passend hopfig. 7/8/7/7/7/7

Bottle. Muddy brown appearance with a small head.Slightly hoppy with some bitterness. Not sure why they call it a West Coast Ale. The label states that it was South Africas top beer in 2009.Must have been a bad year!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy, dark amber with small tan head dissipating into a ring of fine bubbles. Aroma is of carmelised malt, yeast, fruit (apple peal) and floral hops. Flavour is dominated by sweet caramel nutty malt, dry fruit. Medium body and smooth on the palate. Finish is becoming dry from initial sweetness with fruity notes retained and spicy hop bitterness. Overall a very tasty ale if perhaps not greatly refined.
