    Pours a slighty murky brownish red color with a small off white head which has very little retention and leaves pretty much no lacing. The aroma is a bit of yeast spice, a touch of citrus and bready malts. The taste is quite a bit of orange, lemon, bit of pine and spice. Everything was pretty tame. The mouthfeel was on the lighter side of medium in body and carbonation seemed about middle of the road.

    Pours out in a hazy brownish amber colour with a small bubbly off-white head. Malty aroma of caramel, fudge and almonds. Medium-bodied with strong malty notes of caramel, toasted malts, nuts and cherry-sweets. Fairly clean mouthfeel. Medium-bitter finish of fudge, caramel, toasted malts and dark berries. Decent amber, this.

    A cloudy orange-brownish colored ale. A big off white foamy head forms. But no hang time here. Settles into lumps of froth atop the body and soapy froth on the sides of the glass. The nose is light scents of malt. The body is moderately robust with impressive smoothness. The taste is a nice blending of of grassy, floral hops and sweet malt. High drinkability for this one.

    So... Lost Coast is making it's way into town. Good idea! Poured a clear reddish amber colour, dark, with a small beige head that doesn't stick around too long. On the nose, a decent amount of hops and possibly somethign subtly sweet, like one of those fruit wraps. Taste is mellow but firm on the finish. A nice contrast between sweetness and bitter hops.

    Pours a beautiful, bright copper with small, scattered head. The aroma balances toasted maltiness against citrus and apple notes. The flavor is balanced and clean. This is a worthy session beer. Medium bodied and well carbonated.

    Pours a bronze-amber color with a thin off-white head which had some staying power. The aroma is citrusy, floral, and slightly malty but rather subtle and fresh. The flavor consists of sweet malt, some tropical fruit, and just enough of a hop presence to keep this interesting. It finishes with a roasty character. Mouthfeel is a shade thin. Not all that complex but neither is the style and really this is pretty solid. I've only had a few beers from Lost Coast so far but they've all been solid as well. Good session beer here.

    I really enjoyed this beer. Unlike some ambers I have tried, this one has a decent hop presence to give it a pleasant citrusy, piney aroma but with a balanced malt/hop taste. Goes down fairly smooth with a bitter finish. Would have this again.

    Suprisingly, this is a pretty good attempt at a really bland style. Ambers and browns have never been a favorite style of mine. This beer has enough hop character and malts to make you notice. Aroma is light pine, caramel, and roasted malts. Appearance is dark amber in color, a nice white head. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, medium bodied. Flavor is pine, light spices, with enough malt sweetness to keep everything in balance. If you are looking for a drinkable amber ale with some character, you can't go wrong with this one.

    Poured amber with small head and good lacing, surprising with the smalle head. Aroma was of caramel malts and some hops. Flavor was much the same the aftertaste was a little off for me something sour maybe not sure didn't like the aftertaste lets put it that way.
