Pours amber honey w/ a shallow creamy froth. Aroma is flowery w/ slight dry hay. Medium nectar, light on the residual effers. Flavors are dried hay and malty w/ a hopy character. A nice bittering on the finish. Overall: not impressed but descent.

12 oz bottle: Med amber color with tiny off white head. Aroma is malty, fair amount of caramel, touch of herbal, slightly piney hops. Flavor has caramel, mildly chewy malts, faint herbal hops. Finish is well balanced, with a mild bitterness.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Poured to a copper color, with off-white head that diminished quickly, yet left good lacing. Kind of a strange beer, regarding aroma and flavor. I detected aroma of hops and dark fruit (plums, figs), yet taste was what I expected more of a pale ale, citrus fruits, dominated by grapefruit. I enjoyed the flavor, yet the finish tended to be sour. May have ben a bit old. I’m sure I’ll have the opportuinity to have another, and will re-rate if finsih is markedly different. All and all, still a good beer-drinking beer.

DuffMan (7996) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 4, 2006
Rich orange amber with a decent head. Terrific resiny grapefruit aromas accent a nicely malted beer. A fragrant and flavourful American pale ale that is a nice example of the style.

The pour is a copperish amber with a light tan head. An aroma of light citrus and malt greet the nose. A grapefruit flavor with a strong malt background is the flavor the is perceived and a moderate finish on the palate.

Slightly underrated if you ask me. This is a very crisp and refreshing pale ale. Pours a copper color. Head is standard for a pale ale. You get clean citrus flavors such as lemon, orange and a litlte bit of that grapefruit hoppiness that you find in many pale ales. I like this brew because it’s absoutely perfect for drinkin’ on a hot summer day while mowing the lawn. Not the best pale ale out there, but far from the worst. Despite Flying Dog not having the best name out there, I say you should try this beer.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Reddish. Smooth, crisp and refreshing. A solid beer and nothing more than that.

Hoppy and hanging. Pleasant appearance, goes down okay but not before leaving a deposit in your mouth to remember it by. Typical collegiate pub potion with lots of beery flavor. Not a bad brew… but not worth the $8 I paid for six of them.

mjg74 (2824) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottled. Pours a medium amber color. Fairly hoppy aroma. A little malt. Fairly hoppy spicy flavor with a little bit of maltiness as well. Not great, but still, not bad. Bitter finish.
