Lost coast sure makes some nice looking beers. This one pours a nice dark cola brown with a rich tan head, good retention and lots of thick lace.

Nice roasted malts with sweet raspberries.

Same nice roasted malt with a bit of graininess. Raspberries add a sweet, yet slightly tart backing role. Hop is barely discernable.

Smooth and easy to drink.

Not the biggest fruit beer guy, but this one was very nice.

Pours reddish-brown with ½ inch of khaki head that settles into a light film atop the beer. Good lacing.

Smell is primarily raspberry with toasty caramel bringing up the rear.

Taste follows the smell: raspberry, caramel and malt.

Very smooth and drinkable. Medium carbonation.

This is a solid brown ale with raspberry flavor added. Simplicity at it's finest.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Hazy brown with one finger of light tan head. Head goes fairly soon and good amount of lacing.
Smell is big blast of raspberries. Later a bit of chocolate malt aroma.
Taste is raspberries immersed in a pretty decent Brown Ale. The raspberries dominate but the chocolate comes on after a few sips. There is some hop bitterness that helps beat down the fruity sweetness.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin like most beers of this style. Carbonation is low but fine for this beer. Easy drinking for sure. Bottle date was 6/13/13. Don't know if this is a best by date or brewed on date.
Overall a tasty fruit beer and fine for a warm summer evening which it is today.
