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-pours an off white head and amber color. Aroma is mild medium malt, nutty. Taste is medium malt, nutty, faint hops-grassy/earthy.

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 didn’t 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.

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 I’ve had, Anchors. Subtle spices and hops, it’s 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.
