3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft, on premises.A good hop bitterness, though its 38 advertised IBU’s are not much more than their helles. Slightly cloudy dark yellow body under an off-white head with mucho lacing. Finished off with a good, bitter aftertaste. Closer in style to an American ale, as hennes mentioned, though not quite as malty.
On tap: The aroma consists of light fruit, citrus, and a touch of florals. It’s a transparent amber with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is a good amount of soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate fruit and a touch of caramel. The finish has mild florals with a touch of citrus hops. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2015

Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a very hazy gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has woody and musty grains with light pine and grass underlying. Flavor is similar with woody grains and a bit of pine and grass bite in the finish.

Draft sample. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate balanced hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.

(Tap @ Redwood Lodge, Flint, MI): Dark brown-blackish color. Frothy off-white head. Chocolately roasted, malts. Coffee taste. Some alcohol taste. Dogbrick (13751) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Sample at the brewpub: This brew is a cloudy amber/orange color with a thin light beige head that lasts awhile. Sheets of lacing coat the glass. The aroma is hoppy with a surprisingly spicy bouquet. Medium body with a nice combination of floral hops and spices, as well as a touch of fruit. The finish is citrusy hops with a mild lingering bitterness. Pretty good all around.
