Dogbrick (11513) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2009
Sample at 69 Taps in Akron. The beer is a cloudy amber-orange color with a thin off-white head that burns away quickly. Stringy lacing. Grainy malt and caramel aroma with a touch of wheat. Light, clean body with a nondescript wheat and malt flavor. The finish is sweet and malty with a short wheaty aftertaste. Below average overall.

Poured at the Jupiter brewfest. I guess this is a fair effort to make someting a little drinkable from a shitty company. Hazy amberish color. Flavor is malty and grainy. No hops to write home about. Meh.
