Cask, Occasional & Bottled;
A bright amber ale, smooth initially with a slight hint of the Munich malt coming through from the grist. This is complemented well by the stronger refreshing taste from this well hopped beer. Named after the unusual mural of a headless dog at the front door to the brewery.

Bottle shared by jaghana Outre-Rhin 01/2015, merci. Ar) weird gooseberry, pollen. Some minerals, chlorine? Goes into a watery mix of gooseberry lemonade, earthy fruit peel, like domestic physalis. Amber ale? More like a thin mild.
