This is another "import" from "south Florida".  It isn't from South Florida - it is actually from Eureka, California.  But thanks to my father-in-law from bringing this one back with him.  I actually believe he was the one that contributed it also (either him or Uncle Wayne - sorry guys there were so many beers can't remember who is who).  Any who, this beer is a completely blind taste for me.  I know nothing about it at all.  It does say on the side of the bottle:
"A smooth, Medium Bodied Nut Brown Ale, Hand mad e in Small Batches".  Well you sold me on the small batches... I love anything that sounds like it is just a for kettles in a corner making small beers that are quality.

I did go out to their site at The Lost Coast Brewery.  Their history is great and the fact that they bought and started in a castle is EXTRA points in my book.  I gotta say the labels extravagant, bright and interesting.  Over all, I was intrigued in sampling this one.  Luckily, it didn't leave me down.  I poured this beer and it exploded with carbonation.  The head stayed with the beer through the whole drink.  The color comes across like a finely stained mahogany table top.  It is a very very pretty beer in the glass.  Is is clear and crisp.  The beer comes through with a great nutty brown roasted malt smell.  The first sip or two gives a very interesting impression.  It is "light taste" but medium bodied if that is possible.  The taste has some really great nutty brown sweet taste in the mouth.  I think that "light taste" is really the extra intense carbonation in the glass.  It is bursting with flavors of maybe some cinnamon and rich malty goodness.  Over all this was a great beer.  I would love to be able to find more of their samples.  I wonder if I can find this up north - anyone see it?

Thank you all for for following me and reading.  Please share with your friends and contribute to my posts.  Let me know if I can change/add/modify my post in any ways!  Suggestions and recommendations are welcomed.  I'm 89 days in and plugging away.  I'm doing this till the end!  And I'd love for someone people to get some entertainment in reading it.
