2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, purchased 2/23/15 from Habersham in Savannah. Been afraid to crack this one open because most of the Thomas Creek stuff so far from my haul has not been great. This one is not outrightly awful, though, judging from the first sip. Caramel malt, mild toast, mild citrus and earthy hop. Mostly just caramel malt, though. More of the hop flavor comes out as I start to take a few bites of my pizza with this, really helps bring out the remaining flavor. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Medium-plus body. Light slick texture. Smooth, kind of crisp, light carbonation. Mostly clear orange amber color. Little ring of off-white head, and a few bits and ropes of lace. Mostly a caramel malt bomb, but not bad overall. Not as sweet as I expected, good touch of bitterness helps balance things out. A good pairing for my leftover pizza.

Old rating. Average pale ale. Amber colored. More of a bready, malty variety. Some decently bitter and bright hop characteristics. Eh.

Malty with touch of hoppiness, good balance! Smell is also quite malty. Smooth taste, good medium beer!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mostly clear, medium tan-bronze beer with a small white head. Standard US longneck, decent label. Sweetish grain-malty aroma, a little honey and a little husky. Aroma profile comes through in the flavor, slightly astringent especially when really cold. Moderately to slightly heavily bittered. Some woody and vanilla tones, especially in the finish and aftertaste. Medium body. Overall, a fair pint but nothing outlandish. Lazy Dog Growler, Warner Robins.

Not a bad attempt but falls flat in comparison with the great pale ales out there. Low on bitterness, rounded fruity character, a bit watery.

Honey malt. Bitterness in the finish but more of a malt focus. Would be great for bratwursts.

Cask sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a slightly hazy golden brown with minimal white head. Aroma of light pale malts and grassy floral hops. Taste follows, light and easy, kind of more of an English pale ale than an American. Not bad, but nothing great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Warner Robins, Ga - Lazy Dog Growler - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium copper pour, tight, snow white head that sticks around a while. Aroma has some yeasty accents, a touch of pear-like fruitiness. Nice light bitterness with a light citrus touch, some honey sweetness, a bit of cake mix sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice textured feel to it. Pretty solid.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Syrupy, sherry-like American caramel malt with limp spinach leaf and compost pile hop rawness and faint hints of pine and citrus. Medium body, low carbonation, acidic but still flabby. Bottle. Slightly oxidized.
