A friend gave me this pale ale. The head was white with lacing. The color was clear copper. The beverage was very inviting. The texture was smooth but the bitterness was thin ,with some citrus. The beer just failed to wow! me. I have had other flying dogs that were much better.

WhiteSoxFan (152) - USA - APR 25, 2006
Bottle. Pours deep copper, tiny bit of amber. Very clear. Nice, creamy off-white head. Hangs around a little while, laces nicely. Aroma is of some sweet malts, a little bit of hops, not very strong. Flavor is good and very nicely balanced. Good bitterness with some malts to balance it out. Not a lot of hop flavor, but it was more pronounced as the beer warmed. Palate is light to medium, a little bit of a creamy feel, good amount of carbonation. Good, not great APA. Very drinkable session PA. I like it, but there are others I like better.

beerlover82 (230) - Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2006
Deep amber with almost no head and poor lacing. Slightly malty and sweet aroma, taste. A little thin-bodied. Very refreshing on a hot spring/summer day after mowing the lawn, but so is the cheap mass stuff.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2006
Bottle (Utobeer): Amber clear with a short lasting beige head. Strong hoppy nose, tasty light caramel. Toasty nuts and lovely grapefruit / citrus. Clean hoppy ale. Refreshing.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2006
From bottle. Copper pour with white head. Sweet malt and lightly hoppy nose, with a metallic undertone. Initial flavor follows nose, but thin, and then disappears. Some bitter in the finish. Not especially good, but this was one of my gateway beers.

I nice compilation of flavors. Hoppy enough to be a PA, but not so hoppy to turn away. Easy to drink and a great taste.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2006
Bottle from Utobeer. Pours a clear copper with a fine creamy white head. Heavily herbal aroma of Cascade hops. To taste this has a fairly sweet malt base with lots of hop character but not much of that translates into actual bitterness. A little pepper, marzipan and I see where others detect lychee. Disapointingly watery as you progress down the glass. I prefer SNPA.
