Lost Coast Downtown Brown
Lost Coast Brewing Co. – Downtown Brown – 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. 5% abv. Purchased at Whole Foods Market Pasadena,CA
Appearance: Pours a clear dark mahogany that lets about 10% light through. No head to be found.
Aroma: Roasted malts, toffee and a touch of prepared coffee in the nose.
Taste: Moderate roasty malts, cocoa and a faint spicy hop finish.
Mouthfeel: Thin and fizzy.
Overall: If you are at a restaurant or bar, and you like New Castle, you will love this. Much more character than New Castle by far. For me personally, I don’t drink this style much, I like something a bit heartier like a stout or a heavy porter even. If you are going for the long haul, this may be for you.
