Tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy orange pour. White head. Soft citrus meat on the nose. Also soft texture. Slight hop bite late. Okay.

Slightly hazy pale golden colour. Nose is sort of apricot-like but without the sweetness that I sometimes get from beers with this flavour in it. Moderate bitterness with some nice fruitiness.

I’ve drunk my share of lucky labs, and this is one of their best. Well balanced hop flavors of resin, lemon & a peppery spice. the aroma sticks more with the resin, plus caramel and alcohol. Clear amber with minima lwhite head (all the beers here lightly carbonated.) light and refreshing in the mouth. clean finish. Today they just called it Top Dog with 6% alcohol.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear deep golden. Aroma of apricot and orange. Dryish with clen, crisp mouthfeel. Nicely hoppy, yet easy going and very drinkable. Medium bitterness.

motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 20, 2004
on tap at lucky labrador. light amber appearance with a persistent head. some pine and school desk in the aroma, plenty of butterscotch flavour and a hint of menthol. just lacking a bit of bitterness

[email protected] Labrador. Spicy US hops, lightly aromatic. Caramelly/toffee, but not overdone at all, a tad bit dull compared to there other beers, but it was still OK.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 This one rocks. Orange with a nice head. Yummy yummy in my tummy sweet citrus burst. Floral and fruity with exceptional balance.

Draft: mild malt nose some carmel. Orange copper color. Good malt hop mix. Carmel comes to mind. Clean, kinda creamy. Not bad. Didn't wow me either though.

Tap. Hoppy floral aroma. Quick bite. Slightly malty. Was that the smell of dog in this beer? Oh, that was the 50 dogs that were hanging our outside the bar. They even had a band playing.
