2.3/5  rDev -32%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

In Orlando, FL for a conference this week. I'm stuck with Bud, Coors or a bunch of lagers. I decide to go with the best made craft beer available.

It has a nice malty smell and an attractive hazy autumn color. It has a grainy texture to it I kind of like because it's unique. It taste decent at the beginning, but I find it getting skunkier the more I drink of it. I'm near the end of my second bottle and it's hard to finish. I'm going to need to do something to get rid of the harsh after taste.

The hotel I'm at is charging $8 per bottle! After dropping a quick $18 for two bottles I really wish I could find a local beer store. I wanted to like this beer, but it just doesn't work for me.

(Previous review, transferred from beer journal)

Napa Smith Brewery's Lost Dog Red Ale: Appearance: clear reddish amber; Smell: slight hop, slight malt; Taste/Mouthfeel: slightly hoppier than pale ale; bit of pine; pretty good.

Poured into a pint glass.

3.63/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

DATE TASTED: August 22, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Victory Hop Devil nonick... OCCASION: last night of camp thoughts--a good eight weeks...APPEARANCE: handsome reddish-brown body supports a thick off-white head that laces reasonably well; subtle bubbles... AROMA: sweet caramel and cinnamon; hops are light and aromatic--suggestive of soft pine; malts lend a Scottish allure...PALATE: like a brown ale, beginning with a solid malty backbone; hops tickle the teeth, but the malt holds the trump in the profile...TASTE: significant warming aftertaste; medium-bodied, almost an IPA; the alcohol is palpable... OVERALL: an intriguing purchase that may not live up to its bomber status; rounded enough to be a thought on St. Patty's day, but not powerful or substantial enough to demand attention on a non-holiday night; not much of a summer beer either; still, not without its merits or usefulness...
