Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2010 Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear brownish-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Caramel malt aroma with a bit of hops in the background. Light to medium body with sweet malt and caramel flavors alongside a lightly bitter hop flavor. The finish is sweet and malty and does not last long. Average brew overall.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - NOV 27, 2008
On tap at the Red Car Brewery. A deep red color with a small head. Clear. Aroma is a little carmely and a little hop aroma. Taste is clean and balanced. More rich caramel and a hint of roast in there. Very drinkable. Not overly sweet and drys in the finish. A nice beer, but I want a little more caramel and hops.
