COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is brewed from the second mash runnings of our Moon Dog Barleywine (available this November). Small beers are light in alcohol but rich in flavor. Our version is a deep amber beer hopped with German Northern Brewer and Bohemian Saaz and rounds out at 4.5% ABV.

On tap at the brewpub. Thin, clear amberish color. Mild malty/hop balance smell. Taste is very watery as expected with a mild malt flavor, but didnít remind me of a "bitter" at all. Not terrible, but too mild in flavor.

Thin yellow amber. No real aroma. Actually quite a decent beer. Taste is somewhat present - not medicinal or metallic at all. Average overall for me - but one of their best at Big Dogs. Worth a try.

Draught at Big Dogís Cafe and Casino in W Sahara Ave., Las Vegas
Amber color. Light aroma. Dry mouthfeel, some malt, thin body; the final is a bit metallic but showing some interesting hop too.

This is pretty doog. Better than the only other Small beer Iíve had, Anchors. Subtle spices and hops, itís quite easy drinking. Now just waiting for the barleywine.

Sampler. 4.5%. Copper with a light head. Malty aroma like a Scotch ale. Tastes like a second running of a Barley Wine. Makes me want to try the Barley Wine. With the lighter flavours it comes off much like a Scotch/Irish Ale.
