I really want to like all the Flying Dog beers I try, but they all have this strange behind-taste (that’s not even a real term) that just bothers me constantly.

Small tan head, fair retention, little lace. Nice looking clear red brew. Malty, grainy nose, lightly fruity. Medium body, light creamyness. Mildly sweet malt flavors, faint caramel notes, light hop spiceyness. Finish is reasonably dry, malty.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2004
Bottle at Andy’s. Brownish and clear. Tan head. Cooked vege and carmel aroma. Malty carmel and disjointed flavor.Got a little better as the glass was consumed, but it seamed like the fermentation was just slightly off on this one...

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2004
Medium copper color (though my tasting glass was more narrow than it should have been) and dusty white head with thin lacing. More carbonation than I anticipated and a bit too much for my tastes. Mild citrus and brown sugar mixed with a hoppy aroma. Uninspiring flavor. Pretty basic strong ale but without much real character. My first beer from Flying Dog and not one that will have me charging out to sample another any time soon.

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Poured a dark amber color with a small, off white head and left nice lacing on the glass. Toasted and caramel malts, lots of citrus hops in the aroma. Roasty sweet caramel, light citrus bitterness. I was expecting worse, and was pleasantly surprised. Alcohol content was well masked.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 4, 2004
Reddish-copper. Nose is unimpressive, stale toast and a few hops. Flavor pretty similar, not enough malts to give any sort of a winter warmer feel to it, just a bland amalgam of generic beer-ness.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Deep amber with ruby hints. Citrus aroma though plastic seems to be dominate. The flavor is light citrus hops and a big hit of plasticy malts. Medium to light body. This is a mistake.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 3, 2004
120z bottle 047B05 for date. dark brown color...no head retention. Smells of malt and weak coffee and that continues through the flavor. Hops make a short appearance, but this is all about the malt. Malt-heads will dig it. Some weak coffee(roasted) character is probably its most defining feature. OK, but just another medicore winter brew from a "big" micro.

This is not one of Flying Dog’s best. There is an attempt top capture the fell and taste of awinter beer, but his one has lacked both. There aroma is malty and stale. the flavor is present, but in an undertone sort of way. I would like to have a more complex winter beer that makes you feel good. This one does not execute on the promise of feeling like your skiing K-9. They need to re-execute on this recipe.
