3.38/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into pint glass during Portland Mighty Mites small beer festival~
Seems the other reviewers had growler sealing problems... Poured with the same hazy gold hue but with decent head that quickly dissipates leaving a nice bit of lacing. Very pilsner-like aromatics. Focus is on the yeast and malts, very light and fresh aroma. Palate is clean and simple. More emphasis on the lager-like flavors. Finish is short and simple.
Overall a very good session beer and one that I enjoyed. It's not the greatest beer in this style, but it's a nice effort.
(Also posted this review under Little Dog - Fred since many people here are reviewing the Fred and Adam Little Dog under this umbrella)

I'm afraid I can't pinpoint which batch this Little Dog was the second runnings of (best guess Fred, if any) - it was advertised as simply "Little Dog" on the HOTD tap room menu, an "English mild ale, tasty and drinkable, 3.2%"
A: light-golden bread crust, fairly clear, nice glow.... not much foam or lace to speak of
S: mellow-moderate sugar-sweet cereal aromas.... very mild mineral quality and woody/grassy hops
T: they called it "moderately hopped" and I wouldn't disagree - hoppy-bitter more than I'd expected.... soft, almost doughy, biscuity, cereal-malty, bold-toasty malt constitutes its backbone... hardly mild in flavor... one could tell the alcohol is lacking though, extremely mild fruity ester in the background, great balance though for what it is
M: noticeably round up front but immediately washing out clean and quite light.... fortified, minerally spring water?... crisp and smooth
O: what a score, whatever batch they washed this off of.... follows the "trend" of local "milds" I had out there - soft-bready foundation with a punch of bold toasted grain and earthy hop dancing upon it
