Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Bright and copper. Light but still lacing. Tangy and quite citric. Sucks the moisture right out of your mouth. Delish. (#4276, 10/4/2011)

A translucent amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, butterscotch malt with faint British hops. In mouth, a nice honey laden malt, lingering over smooth Cascade hops, a bit light but good. On tap at the brewpub, August 13, 2011.

at G2B pub in Durham. another on the list of how I hadn’t rated this yet, oh well, Good aroma, sweet, citrusy, lemon & orange, little caramel malt. Clean golden orange color, small head, little to no lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Lite body, smooth oily mouthfeel, bitter sweet finish. Nice easy to drink pale ale. aroma is best part for me. nice citrusy notes. always happy with a Pilot mountain.

A copper color with white head. Aroma is faint with citrus and caramel. Flavor is bitter with mainly lemons but little else going on. Very one dimensional. Aftertaste is a little odd. Very average

dark red, very dark for an apa. nose of medium/high crystal malt and some citrus hops. solid bitterness before a ton of crystal malt that is balanced by the citrus hops, but the taste is muddled. the residual sweetness is high for the style and the bear is not very drinkable

Reviewed from notes. Pours a moderate copper color with a white head and a pretty good amount of lacing. Nose is light citrus and herbal hops. The taste brings some pale malt as well as a slight bit of citrus. A light bitterness in the feel. Easy drinking but somewhat lacking. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-11-2010
