3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz Bottle. The pour was a clear reddish brown with a light orange hue and a large (2-3 finger) light tan creamy head that had great retention and produced excellent sheeting of lacing.
The aroma was of a sweet dark bread malt and a earthy Brett yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (lime), a mild spiciness and a slight fruity ester.
The taste was malty sweet with notes of caramel and citrus from the start, and then progresses with a slight tart yeasty presence, a mild fruitiness and a light bitter peppery ending. The flavor lasted an average time following consumption with a mild tart spicy taste left to linger.
Mouthfeel was just under medium in body and extremely creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation.
Overall this was an exceptionally well made brew that was bold, flavorful and possessed a nice sweet, spicy tart flavor. And you gotta love the name...

What a uniquely strange beer. The smell nput me on my ass. It is malt, wheat, grass, star fruit, alcohol and molasses. Taste is even stranger. Strawberries, peaches, grapefruit, yeast, grass. This really a unique brew.

This one is well named because it tastes like crotch. Would make a pretty nice sour ale had they added a bit of lemon flavor. As is, it’s kind of like sweat mixed with seltzer.

Reviewed from notes verbatim on 9/23/10
A: Low head, but persistent bubbles creates a small foam cup. Brilliant clarity. Copper color.
S: Sweet, hints of caramel, floral: tulip. Good ESB smell.
T: The beer is an ESB for sure and has a sweet tone to it. I really like this ESB.
M: Well balanced medium body with moderate carb.
D: I really enjoy the sessionability of this beer. Laughing Dog usually spends their time making high intensity beers. This one is subtle and nice. Strong work.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Pours hazy rich amber with small off-white head. Dark, sweet aroma of malt and fruit with a clear alcohol note. Sourish and bitter flavour of hops with a note of yeast and malt. Watery but avceptable, although not well-balanced. Sourish, nearly bitter aftertaste. OK.

Pours an amber color with an off white head that leaves decent lacing. Aromas of honey, wheat, and a little malt. Flavors of malt, wheat and sweet fruit (grapes and apple) a pleasant complex flavor.

Nice beer. Had at a beer geeks tasting. Rated this beer using a different program and unfortunately I'm not able to transfer my comments here.

Aroma is sweet licorice and mint with a hint of peppery spice...yeasty too...I'm scared I may smell a bit of dog poop too. Of course I still tasted this stinky amber cloud of a beer despite its confusing olfactory introduction. And...tangy spice with yeast and peppers. A bit of sweetness. Strange.

Smells like the crotch the dog is sniffing on the label. Consistent with the crotch theme, it tastes like nuts. Not a bad beer, but not really my style.

From the bottle, love the name of this one!! Pours an amber color with a nice fruty and malty scent to it. Taste is slightly fruity up front with English bittering hop flavor in the aftertaste. Nice ESB, I’d get this one again for sure.
