Looks like your typical macro lager with an average amount of head/lacing. Aroma is sweet, corn/vegetable, a very light hop. Flavor has a nice herbal, slightly grassy hop, mild bitterness and some malt followed by a sweet sugary flavor and maybe cabbage. Bland for the crowds at Akron U sporting events (where the brewer is reportedly hoping to sell this). I had hoped for a little better knowing that Thirsty Dog brews it and it’s $10 a sixer at your local Acme.

12 oz. bottle. Appearance-Pours a clear gold generous white that vanishes quickly leave some lacing. Arom-Light spicy hops and malt. Taste-mild sweetness at first finishes dry with a hop bitterness. Leaves a somewhat puckering aftertaste for a little bit. Overall not a bad beer for what it is.

I both sampled this at the brewery and tried it from the bottle. Aroma was slightly hoppy, not sure what else was there. Taste was a tad bitter, aftertaste was stronger. Palate was almost medium, lively carbonation. This is the first and currently only brew from RooBrew" if anyone is curious.

Bottle. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Aroma of creamy malt and veggies. Malty flavor with a bit of hop crispness. Unimpressive and the vegetal note has to go.

Sample @ Blues&Brews. Neon yellow pour with a little bit of carbonation. Smells a bit sweet and grassy. Inoffensive but the color kinda put me off.

Dogbrick (11617) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2009
Sample at 69 Taps in Akron. The beer pours a clear golden color with a thin and creamy white head that diminishes steadily. Spotty lacing. Mild hops and wheat in the nose. Light body with flavors of pale malt and nearly flavorless hops, plus a touch of corn. The finish is lightly hoppy and short. Pretty bland and uninteresting overall.
