I wasn't to fond of this beer. It was a bit bitter. I would not recommend this beer.

When the server starts the conversation with, "Sorry it’s not cold enough," you know this one won’t be confused with a top 100 beer. Such was the case. Amber color with an aroma of caramel and toasted malt. Some caramel and toasted malt flavor with a quick hop bite at the end. Meh.

12oz. Pours medium copper/amber with a small ring of lace. Aromas of light caramel, bread, toasted grain, a slight earthy hops. Flavor is watery and bland. Some caramel and toasted grain show...but not much. Meh

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Andrew! Pours amber with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and grass. Taste is citrus, caramel malt, grass, and pine. Just OK.

DocLock (7829) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2012
Bottle from Blue Dog. Pours deep coppery toward mahogany with 1-finger splotchy off-white head. Nose is hopcitrus, earthy spicy brown sugar. Tastes hoppy, malty, a bit vegetallic, with a spicy hoppy peppery finish. This one, with some fine tuning, could become a little brother of hopback amber, which is what I think they were going for.

Á strange metallic aroma from the pour. Looks nice, amber with a small head. The flavor is quite bland. Finishes thin. Not much to recommend here.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a large white head. A fruity and dusty nose. The flavor is somewhat odd but nice: sweet caramel; light fruit; very dusty; dry. A bit bitter and maybe some butter creeping in. Not bad.
