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
