Pours a lovely golden yellow with a slight bit of chill haze and a scant head of white foam that fell pretty fast. Nose is bread that has been drizzled with a bit of honey. A light grass that is sweet and a vergence on nuttiness that I find a bit exciting. Nose is clean. Taste is beautiful. Rich malt that is not heavy just resilient and expansive. A drizzle of sweet honey and a a nutty quality that takes you by surprise. Tantalizing. The malt seems to be peaking in every possible way without becoming something it shouldn't be and so are the hops. The grass in this one is not perfunctory, not an afterthought. The grasses on this are as sweet and rich as the malt. They lend balance and the slightest bitter. It is as though they are some kind of exotic and verdant perfume in this drink. The malt is round yet crisp and dry. The body of the beer is medium and it too is crisp with carbonation. The finish is dry and leaves a bit of it's honey and nutty sweetness behind with those sweet grasses that seem to be billowing in the warmth of the summer sun.

EXcellent!

Labrador Lager from Thirsty Dog Brewing Company, my ifrst from this nearby brewer. Poured from the bottle into a glass, this brew's got a 1.5 finger thick, off-white head. Decent lacing for the medium amber body.

Smells like biscuit malt, maybe a slight bit of earthiness . Rich with grains.

Tastes like biscuits quite a bit, yes. The malt is on point here with being not too sweet, but not too bland. Clean finish from Labrador Lager from Thirsty Dog.

A very crisp and clean mouthfeel with this brew. This would be very capable of washing down any food greatly during a meal.

Overall, a very respectable 3.75 for Labrador Lager from Thirsty Dog Brewing Company. This was very refreshing and clean. I will buy this brew again!

Labrador Lager brewed by Thirsty Dog Brewing Company with an ABV of 6.0%. This brew pours out a dark amber color- almost brown- with a small, white head. This is a filtered brew you can see right though it. The smell of this brew is sweet with some grains. Reminds me of sweet brewed tea. Nothing bad about this brew so far.The taste is clean, sweet, smooth ,and refreshing. You pick up on sweetness of this brew. Labrador Lager is a real nice balanced brew. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. Mouthfeel is nice, smooth and sweet. Overall I'm giving this brew 5 out of 5. This is a great brew with a great taste. I will buy this brew again...
