We were surprised by the advertisement for this one - obviously aiming at the low carb freaks - this beer only has 2% abv. It looked very inviting - sparkling clear light golden, small head; good lacing (all of my beers on 5/29/04 had great lacing, must have been the stars). Taste was "hop water" - this was a well hopped beer with virtually no malt. Hints of lemon/lime and a clean finish. Considering that I was the designated drive/tour guide for the day, I actually enjoyed this pint quite a bit.

On tap in Copely. Pretty golden color with a big bubble cream colored head and a nice hoppy nose. Very watery on the palate. It has some hop flavor but no body. Tastey but pointless.

This beer is supposed to cater to the adkins-crazed and calorie counting beer drinkers out there. It is supposedly modeled after Golding’s Retriever but with less calories and alcohol. I think the fact that someone crossed out some words on a flyer for the beer so it read that the beer was "for pussy bitches" about says it all. The beer looks good enough, being brownish-amber with a thin light beige head and quick lacing. The aroma is very subdued, with only the slightest hint of hops to be found. Light-bodied, and despite claims that it retains the flavor of the original this beer is beyond mild. There is almost no flavor except for a hint of hops and sourness. The finish is weak as well. I guess that is Thirsty Dog’s idea of a session beer, but it is not mine.
