Hops and malt and scant else int he aroma. Dark tea colored with a frothy white head. Water and mild hop flavor. A very vague and unpronounced malt flavor as well. It doesn’t taste bad it is just very one dimensional but not really in a pleasing way.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2007 Draught. Copper color with thin head. Not much aroma; hint of caramel and hops. Flavorful with hints of brown sugar, caramel, and hops. Slight hop bitterness. Very tasty.

Bottle. Nice deep amber color, very clear with slight bubbly head. Wonderful subtle floral hops (a Cascade finish I presume from the commercial description) on the nose wafting on top of a solid malt sweetness. Medium to medium-light body, very smooth. Mostly a rounded light malt sweetness, toffeelike, with a slight hop bitterness toward the end, much like tea’s tannin. A wonderfully balanced, well rounded beer, and quite refreshing in a way that Ambers sometimes are not-- no tacky alcohol sweet aftertaste. I liked this a lot.

Bottle: Translucent amber, moderate to large sand colored head, foamy with nice lacing, very little carbonation.   Very subtle toasted malt character.   Malty start, semi-sweet, with a low hop profile.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Clean finish, very minor malts linger.   Average Amber, decent, on the sweeter side with very little hop presense.

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.
