A: Poured a light gold color with good carbonation leaving a nice white cap

S: Weak citrus, sordove musty and bitter

T: Pretty much citrus, and pretty one dimensional. Lots of off putting hop bite on the end.

M: Light body, carbonation was to much for this lighter bodied beer.

O: Average. Second runnings of Doggie or Fred may be good for some but not this guy. Not a fan and I prefer the first runnings and I dont see how this could be classified as an APA either.

12oz. tulip snifter on tap at the tasting room.
from notes.

Arrives in a HotD snifter, burnt orange body with lighter orange edges, slightly hazy and a quite thin white head that dissipates quickly.

The aroma is of light citric hops and a biscuity malt backing.

The taste is a lot more balanced then the nose, but follows the same profile.

Fairly low carbonation, near flat. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, but the low carbonation gives the impression of a more watery body.

A decent beer, but in my opinion not quite as enjoyable as the other Little Dog offerings I have tried.

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)

On tap at Hair of the Dog in a nifty little tasting glass that beckons for me to purchase it. Sorry little fellow, your tulip shaped friend is only a dollar more and is much more practical.

A: Prominent smoke character brings to mind smoked apple wood bacon and beach wood. Some citrus hops shine through, as does a little bready malt.

F: Flavor is an interesting combination of smoke and citrus hops. They coexist nicely. Lightly bitter, with a touch of bready malt. Finish is a combination of bitterness and smoke that lingers.

M: Upper light body, moderate carbonation. Mouthful is a tad thin.

Overall: An interesting and well crafted beer, but not one I desire to drink again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in a tulip glass. Half finger of head on a cloudy, medium straw colored body.
It smells like wet grain and hay, in the best possible way.
The taste is nice: wet grain and mild bitterness.
Fizzy texture with moderate carbonation and medium body.
Pretty good flavor and drinkable.
