Dogbrick (11470) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Sample at Mongoose vs Cobra. Clear copper color with a medium foamy white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt and mild hops. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet malt, earthy hops and slight fruit. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Average overall.

Should be renamed "Big Bore." An ordinary amber ale that’s forgettable. Somewhat hopped.

I was not impressed with this beer. It had a metallic taste to it that threw everything else off. Not much flavor here for an amber beer.

Amber colored with white disappearing head. A very malt-dominated brew with a sweet (syrup and butterscotch) nose and taste. A bit too much, but it at least gives it a decent body.

OldMrCrow (2403) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2006
On tap at the Grove in Austin.

Pours dark amber with a decent head; the aroma is caramel malt and a hint of grassy hops. The flavor is a barely sweet, slightly sour+metallic hoppy throughout, providing a rather uninspired amber lager that I’m in no big hurry to revisit.

travita (4847) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2008
On tap at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth. Copper in color with a decent off white head. Smell is malts, some hops, and a little roastiness. Good balance in the feel and taste. Taste is malty and some fruits.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 11, 2008
Draft at Ginger Man Austin. Poured a clear medium orange color. the head was off white and left some lace behind on the glass. Smelled of spicy malt and some brown sugar. Light bodied and dry with an earthy fall leaf note accompanied by grassy hops and dry grains. Fairly thin.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2011 Pretty amber pour. Nice flavor but it still maintained the metallic aftertaste typical of microbrews.3.6
RE-RATE 1/19/11 Tap at the Addison Saucer. Pours a clear, amber orange color with a very small head. Aroma is dry and grainy with some light caramel Malts. Flavor is dry, with a earthy, leafy flavor. Some sweet malts kick through near the end but finishes with a dry bitterness that isn’t too welcoming. Great till the finish.

Very average all-around. Medium amber with a medium head. Malt and grain aroma, fading taste.

Tap at Flying Saucer. Nothing to get excited about. Did have some malty aroma, but the taste was flat.
