Tap at HDG. Pale brown beer, thin white head. Aroma is very malty. Soft earthy malts and a bit of spicy/woody hops over the top. Flavour is also fairly hoppy with spicy hops, toasty malts and a soft earthy finish. More ale-like than any other lager I’ve had, but it certainly hits the spot.

Dogbrick (7578) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Sample at Fette Sau. Clear pale brown color with a thin beige head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, nuts and mild earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Draught at the Fette Sau, New York, NY.
Dark reddish amber colour with small creamy off-white head. Mild malty aroma with sugary sweetness, brown sugar and nuts. Toffee and sugary sweetness, sweet maltiness and mild nuttiness in flavour. Too sweet for me.

Brewfest NY 08. Man i wish i was able to write down notes at the fest, but it was pouring rain and I had an umbrella in one hand, and my drinking glass in the other. I remember this being below average. Obviously need to try it again.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2009
Tap at Croxley. Pours a deep ambery brown with a nice lasting head. Aroma is nutty dark chocolate, herbal and floral hops. Flavor is a touch sweet- caramel and toffee malts, herbal and lightly grassy, nutty light roast and slight dry dark chocolates, tea-like and English overall with a clean crisp aftertaste and finish. Ok.
