Poured a nice white head. Very yellow in color. The taste really stands out from the appearance. Yellow fizzy beers can be great!! Myriad of flavors, nice hop finish. Very pleasant beer!

Biblical billoughy white head out of the bottle. Fresh pineapply, yeasty fragrance that gets your attention. Occluded, sweet nectar that gets ya sip after sip. There is also a candy like quality to the flavor. Very much like a lemon drop or a cherry flavored hard candy. Very nice beer. This is a style Iíve not had many to compare to. I would rate this a superior beer and the 2nd best of its category for now.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Light, washed out honey color with a slightly off white head. Nose offers light nutty malt, grass, hay, and zesty lemon. Very clean. Flavors arenít really huge, but are very pleasing. Notes of fruit, lemon, and pepper. Overall, a touch on the sweet side. Pleasant hoppy finish. Props to Drew for hooking me up with this tasty little brew!

another very unique brew from the guys at Hair of the Dog. When buying this brew you expect something more hoppy with maybe a western hopt style. However at first smell you know its something more, something completely different. very small white head, lacing slides down glass as you drink. Golden Orange color. This brew is very very smooth. the hops and pale malts give off a sweet fruityness, that is different but definently not overwelming. I like this brew very much. Thanks guys.

FlacoAlto (4100) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Pours a clear straw gold color with an off white head. The aroma is of grain, hay fields, and perhaps a hint of lemon. This is a clean straight forward nose. The beer is sweet up front with a nice fruity middle that ends with a bit of bitterness. Luckily the beer has much more flavor than the nose suggests. There is a fair amount of hop flavor in this beer, it picks up what would otherwise be a clean straight forward ale. This is pretty good stuff.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 11, 2004
Clear golden with a big white head that is long lasting hops and yeas in the nose. The taste is wheat with some frutit and sweetness of the malts. Oretty good with a fizzy body. Adam was better. A lot

Iíll catch hell for this but this beer didnít impress me. Amber body with foamy white head. Aroma was hoppy and a bit funky for me. Was true to a saison. Some spiciness and a hint of sweetness. Malt, perhaps. The mouthfeel was okay. The taste started well but the finish was foul. That put me off. Havenít been impressed with HOTD products.

Bottle. A very nice, soft ale. Honeyed, spicey, lightly grassy. Nice and refreshing and as i said before soft. Definitely not as assertive as their other beers, but still very nice.

A bit tipsy from the Doggie Claws, I opted for only half of the Ruth. Certainly lighter in body, the aroma is bubblegum and banana. Light and refreshing, like an highly hopped American Wheat, ala Gumballhead. A bit more yeasty and estery though. Itís hoppy at the end with some really pronouced lemon rind flavors.
