On tap. Dark cooper color with white head. Malty taste with a slight biscuit taste. Dry aftertaste. Nothing special, but drinkable.

Another Thirsty Dog offering with a distinct caramel flavor. Not what I expected from a ’Golden Lager’, but worth a try. Only my second taste from Thirsy Dog, and will continue with a strong tradition of a recommended beer. Balto is something more than the regular and expected and, with that in mind, definately welcome.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2005 I found this beer to be sweet but yet very smooth to drink since it’s like a typical watery lager. The carbonation was lively and the aftertaste was not bad.

Color is golden, and cloudy. Aroma is lightly sweet chocolate, with a lager softness. Flavor is pretty much the same. Abrupt finish. Not very refreshing though. A decent, run of the mill lager.

Poured from the bottle with a decent sized tan colored head. Medium sized body, with a hoppy bitter aftertaste. Surprised this was a Vienna. Thought it was a hoppy lager. Not bad, nothing special though.

this is a great beer most won’t get to try this but if you ever see it buy it it is a slighly sweet caramel lager that that has a smooth taste and very pleasant aroma

This one left me with a good impression however it was a bit in limbo and here’s why. The aroma was that of sweet caramel. The flavor though wasn’t what I was expecting since I had OLH first. Like OLH and it’s strong chocolate flavor this one lacked the strong caramel flavor. It is there you just have to find it. Still it’s one I could get more of.

Nice color. Carmel flavor with light hops. Very weak finish; woulod probably avoid in the future.
