Draught served too cold and drank too fast. Mild nose, light sweetness with some hop character. Orange-brown with little head. Well-balanced but unimpressive flavor, sweet with a slightly dry bitter finish. On the thin side, not really enough of a body to make up for the lack of flavor.

This is a texan treat!! This brew has a unique bitterness, quite delicous! Minimal head here, when you drink this you can sense the wort flavour...a refreshingly different beer! :::: Re-rate 1/2 a year later....Sunrise Orange..little head..slight honeycomb-off toffee smell..caramel bitterness, and the bitterness coats the mouth nicely, good! rated 3.6 ...scores changed in response.

Aroma is a nice caramel, but the pleasantries end there. The flavor is rotten tomatoes, stale whiskey, and flat Coke. This is wort, not beer. The picture for the beer shows a dog, which I am assuming is the beer’s namesake. Put the poor fella down- he’s suffering something awful, fellas.

Poured amber with a thin off white head...aroma is well balanced...taste is somewhat sweet with a nice bitter finish...

Tap. Poured slighly murky and golden with a short head that didn’t last. Exciting aromas of hops and doughnuts. Slid over my tongue like a cilantro jell-o shot. Finished quick and slighly bitter.

Murky amber/orange with not much head and a little lacing. Not much aroma, maybe a little fruit from the yeast and some malt. It has a balanced malty flavor, but a little thin in the body. Watery but clean finish. A little age and some carbonation would do wonders for this beer.

Pretty average I will say. Had side by side with a pint of IPA. Not bad, but rather lacking. Just ever so slightly watery. This noted. I don't think it would be too great an effort to make this into a fair session ale if the time was taken.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - JAN 2, 2003
RE-RATE: Reddish-orange, average head. Decent aroma, some pleasant hops, slight mint. A little bland but the crisp hops are nice. Slight spicy-vanillla taste. A little more punch and this could be a decent ESB. We might have had a bad batch the first time around. ORIGINAL RATING 5/15/02: 3-4-4-3-7 How do the people at LJ's make all of their beers have absolutely no smell? Quite bland, a little sweet and slightly hoppy finish that I couldn't notice again after the first sip.

The first sip almost has taste, then it's pure water after that. ..........

As sad as it is to say, I could not tell the difference between this and the pale ale. Nothing distinctive or special about this beer at all. It was like rotten ginger ale.
