A light yellow color with very little head. Not much aroma, and not much taste either. Acidic finsh like everyone else mentioned, and a very light texture. Not very exciting, but not really offensive.

Clear/blond color. Frothy white head. Sweet at the start, finish is dry/malty. Drinkable, but not a great beer.

I agree with Gusler’s review: Pale, sweet, kind of light with and acidic finish. Drinkable, but not a great beer.

Has a wheaty aroma. Pale, golden color with very little head and poor retention. It is a light-bodied beer with some bite to it (hence the name). You could do a lot worse. Good session beer.

Very understated aroma and flavor. Very pale color with surprisingly good head retention and lacing. A nice refreshing beer but lacks character.

I bought a variety pack of flying dog beers, and this one was by far my favorite. I wasn’t terribly impressed by the brewery honestly. If I were to buy flying dog again, it would most certainly be this particular brew. Give it a shot...you may have another opinion.

I have to admit, Flying Dog’s creative artwork drew me in. I bought a six pack in Charlotte, NC. I loved it... haven’t had any luck fiunding it since. It’s a good, refreshing beer. I normally prefer darker beers, but this one did the trick for me.

different, yet somehow boring. not a bad example of a style i dont much care for. i dissagree with comments about this being the brewery’s best. their lager and porter might not stack up that high against other lagers and porters, but they’re better than this. Good summer beer.
