COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crooked Coast is inspired by the original Alt-style beer of Dusseldorf; “Alt” is German for old and the style a vestige of the days before lager yeast was discovered, when ales were what German Brewers produced. A marriage of the aromas of both German noble hops and caramel Munich malt, this quintessential session beer is defined by its delicate malt-hop balance.

Malts: Pilsner, Dark Wheat, CaraMunich
Hops: Tettnanger

manuchampions (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 31, 2009
Thick, foamy head topping a yellowish, hazy colour. Aroma is slightly sweet with some summery malts evident. Taste is floral, sweet and decently backed by light malt. Finish isn’t much to crow about but it’s decent if underwhelming. Solid craft brew in a style I’m not a huge fan of.

Malty sweet with a good hop backing. Very nice amber ale. This was a pleasure to drink.

First of all, i praise driftwood for coming on the scene and bringing some less conventional european styles to B.C. This one starts with a lacy cap on a blood orange body. Nose of floral and fleshy fruits with munich malt undertones. Roasted malt, caramel and spicy hops predominate with some late fruity esters. Finish is lingering alcohol and smooth, mellow. I like.

Jonte (1496) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2009
Bottle. Orange colour with an off-white head. Light aroma of caramel, flowers, and a bit of sweetness. Taste of caramel, citrus, oranges, floral hops, metal. On the light and a bit watery side.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2009 From Firefly. Gave up a finger’s worth of creamy white head to cap a beautiful amber body. Aroma was malt underpinned by some hop and floral notes. Flavour was some malt and little else. Certainly less sweet than the aroma suggested. Mouth too thin by far. Decent finish.

mgermani (1010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2009
Pours a clear strawberry-copper with a decent white head and some lace. Aroma is lightly stale oily noble hops and sweet malt - munich comes as no surprise. Lightly buttered character in the taste, pleasant lingering malt finish, light on the hops. Good carbonation, crisp body. Not bad, for a style I’m not too hot on.

tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2009
Pleasant cereal and bread-like malt nose with lightly spicy hops. Clear amber body is topped by a decent, thick, frothy, off-white head that recedes to a lasting cover with nice lacing. Breadlike malts with light fruity esters that linger through the aftertaste. Assertive but not overpowering bitterness. Medium body is quite dry in texture with relatively strong carbonation. Tulip glass. Allowed to warm from the fridge. Bottle (Best Before 9/12/09) purchased at Brewery Creek in May-09.

CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2009
(650ml bottle) Purchased at Six Mile Offsale in Colwood. Pours a lasting, thin, almond-coloured head with a copper body. Nose is very aromatic, hoppy. Not terribly malty, some tart raspberry seed notes. Very light an easy drinking. Likeable.
