Lost Coast Downtown Brown Ale

It's been a while since I've had any beers from Lost Coast Brewery in Eureka, CA, so tonight I selected their Downtown Brown Ale. I have to confess that the first thing that caught my eye was the crazy artwork on the bottle. In fact, most of their beers have super bright colorful and unique labels. Downtown Brown is a very solid brown ale. It poured a medium-dark brown with a pencil thin head. It tasted of sweet malt, slightly nutty, and with a coffee-like bitterness. It's nothing extraordinary, but it's still very enjoyable. Lost Coast makes a number of other good beers, such as their Indica IPA.

I formulated Downtown Brown to be an easy drinking beer that goes well with pizza. That was my main concern, that you could drink a pitcher of DTB while you downed a pizza. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Wow, this was my first comment from a brewer! Thank you for your input! Now that I know your plan for Downtown Brown as a pizza beer, I'll have to get some more to go along with my next pizza. Thanks again, and thanks for making some great beers!
