Beer added by: Viggo on 11-16-2009

Barking Squirrel is a 5% ABV amber lager with a distinct rich burnt orange colour and subtle noble hop aroma. Its medium body, pleasant hop bitterness and caramel malt sweetness makes it smooth and drinkable with a slight hop aftertaste.

Mooseheads foray into the craft beer market. "Craft beer with attitude." Poochy is here. On tap at Volo.

Pours a clear amber, orange highlights, thick white head forms, slowly settles to a thin ring, some lacing on the glass, looks nice.

Smell is solid, very malty, some biscuit, light floral, caramel sweetness, toast, not as clean as most lagers, and I'm not sure if they were going for a vienna or not.

Taste is similar, solid malty base, biscuit and some toast, lightly bready, some floral hopping, simple but nicely made, balanced finish, I would dig a some more hopping.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. A pretty decent entry into the craft market for Moosehead. Could be more "craft" but I was relatively happy with the quality of this one.
