Poured into a tulip. two-finger bone white head dissipating quickly, no lacing. Tons of carbonation streaming off the bottom of the glass.

Blueberries of course dominate the nose with some bitter hops coming through and a light pale maltiness supporting the background. Aromatics are surprisingly good.

Light, crisp blueberries go pretty well with the hop selection, which are tangy and citrusy as well, but very understated as one would expect from this kind of beer. The maltiness comes through mid palate which is actually pretty smooth and sustains a clean mouthfeel throughout.

I was actually pretty surprised by this. It is definitely not my type of beer but seadog was actually pretty refreshing and a nice change of pace.

Disclaimer: A buddy and I split a growler of Pliny the Elder last night so maybe my taste buds have been ruined for the week. Either way, seadog was a nice change of pace but I think there are better fruit beers out there.

*I didn't know this was retired. My 6 pack appears to be fresh*

A- Hazy amber color, but it looks golden in some lighting. Hazy amber is the real color. Head was just like a macro lager. It died fast. Not gonna win over anyone in it's appearance.

S- Big blueberries and malty, grainy notes. It's kind of like a blueberry pancake. That seems to be the typical note in blueberry beers I've had. There is also a syrupy, almost artificial, kind of sweetness in there. Faint butterscotch as well.

T- Butterscotch and sweet blueberry. Maybe some pale malt to go with that, I guess. Some grains. Some bitter and lightly sour notes before it finishes fairly dry. Nothing is off-putting. But not a whole lot to write about.

M- On the light side of medium. Very crisp! It is refreshing and clean tasting. Less carbonation would have been better. Carbonation is almost like soda water.

Overall this isn't too bad for a blueberry ale. Beers with blueberries seem to taste better than other beers brewed with fruits. I can see having a beer like this with brunch or a light lunch. It's not bad at all. It's just a simple beer is all.
