Pours deep amber with a moderate, fluffy white head. Smells malty, hints of toffee and caramel, with some decent bitterness. Tastes bitter with some solid malt sweetness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Flying Dog Doggie Style Classic Pale Ale finishes with a touch of lingering bitterness.

Had some warnings this brand wouldn't be very good. You must have gotten a bad bottle like I did with Bell's Oberon. This stuff is very good and is very sweet and bitter like a pale ale should be. Nice head. A little Lacing. I think this is a very good brew.

I love this beer. I like ordering from a cute bartender, not failing to mention that it’s my favorite. Drink it at the Blake St. Tavern down the street from Coors Field in Denver. That’s where it’s brewed.

I love this beer! I think this is hands down one of the best commercially available American Pale Ales on the market. True to the style this beer pours a beautiful amber with an off-white head (which unfortunately does not last long enough). The aroma is profoundly hoppy, but the bready malt still comes forth in the taste against the bitter hops. On draft or in the bottle this is a great example of what a pale ale should be!

To me, this Pale Ale is all about balance - with surprising depth in taste without being overbearing. A new go to beer for virtually any occasion. However, hop-heads will be underwhelmed by its lack of bite - and will be better advised to check out Flying Dog’s (Colorado Style) IPA.

From the bottle. Aroma is very hoppy and nice. Flavour is hoppy, and bitter. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lively Carbonation. I do not recommend drinking from the bottle, it hides to much. Overall a great pale ale, love it! It even burps really nice.

Ça attaque sec dans la bouche ! C’est herbeux, y’a de l’agrume. Le palais se laisse tapisser et on a envie d’y retourner aussitôt.

Passion fruit on the nose, light body with huge fruity hop presence. Easy drinking. Dangerously so.
