COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Occasional & Bottled;
A bright amber ale, smooth initially with a slight hint of the Munich malt coming through from the grist. This is complemented well by the stronger refreshing taste from this well hopped beer. Named after the unusual mural of a headless dog at the front door to the brewery.

Pours cloudy Amber with small white head that doesnt last. Crisp, fresh, fruity, hops and barley. Faint aroma, mostly barley malt. Some caramel sweetness and hops in the finish

Nice balanced beer and very easy to drink. Medium bodied, subtle aroma and hop taste. Tastes of caramel and biscuit with a medium clean bitterness. Better than your average beer.

Golden appearance strange taste rather chemical. Fair strength is only redeeming feature but nothing exciting. Disappointed. This was on tap in Witherspoon Belfast Dublin road..

flying_pig (1466) - SCOTLAND - AUG 3, 2016
500ml bottle from The Linen Hall, Enniskillen (2.99):
Quite a disappointing Hilden beer if Im honest, I was expecting a bit more from the brewery with this one if Im honest & it just seemed far too light at times with both the taste & the nose seeming somewhat subdued & weak. There was some pale malts & the off background fruit coming through alongside nice helping of citrus but it all seemed a touch bland & flat at times & it was wasnt one that I particularly enjoyed sadly.

ManVsBeer (8951) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2015
Bottle just called Hilden Headless Dog. Amber with a very thin head. Well-balanced with a very light fruitiness in its hop and asome light malts too.

Flaska inkpt i Dublin, tack snlla frun! Doftar brd och smrkakor, typiskt brittiskt. Blommig och lite karamellig smak. Tja vad skall jag sga, tusen nyanser av brittisk pale ale. They look the same and taste the same....

Bottle purchased in Derry, shared with Linh and Scarlett in Donegal, Ireland July 2015. Pours a clear golden body with white lacing. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with notes of pal malt, soft grains and corn. Zero hop profile.
