(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.

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...
