3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 Pretty good lager. It reminded me of a less hoppy version of Brooklyn Lager. Ends very smooth and dry, with a slight bit of sweetness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is an attractive beer - dark amber color. Very faint
non-descript nose. Clean malty taste with a moderate
bitter component. Smooth round mouth feel with slight
butter tones. The paper finish (again from Flying Dog)
gets negative points from me. Definitely a new world
interpretation of a Vienna lager. OK beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2006 Nice appearance, with a bright copper color and a frothy head. Smooth with a rich malt bill. Surprisingly complex flavor; caramel-like, toffee sweetness. Toasted aromas. Dry finish, with a little evident alcohol in the back. Some earthy/woodsy/smoky flavors in the back... and some in the aroma. Kept me interested.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Out of the 6 Flying Dog’s I tried tonight, this one has the best label. Typical lager with a somewhat bitter taste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An overall average beer with an average, yet pleasant, aroma. It also has an average, yet pleasant flavor, but it finished with the distinct taste of rubbing alcohol. It is a good thing to be average sometimes, but next time, I think I’ll skip that last sip.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber, so-so head. Exceptional nose of malt, pears, brown sugar,vanilla. Very soft in mouth, lush with flavors of caramel, malt, broen sugar and others. Pretty complex with a nice hopping all the way through to the end. Not your typical lager.

A rich carmel colored with a fine milky carmel aroma. Well-balanced, nice springy hops. Soft in the mouth with medium effervescence. I like this brewery.
