On-tap at Rosie McCann's in Santa Cruz, CA. On to the beer:
Wood polish brown mixed with orange and red hues. Good webbed lacing clings to the glass. The nose is nutty, offering up notes of toffee crisp too. And Turbodog's flavor is nutty as well. Nutty with a side of graininess, a kiss of hops, and a vague crispness. With a lighter medium body, this ends up as a respectable, working man's brown ale.

This is the best beer I have ever had. I heard great things about Turbodog, and went to my local market, which has a "Build your own 6-pack" thing for 9.99. I got a Turbodog, Purple Haze, couple Shock Tops, and a Cherry Chocolate beer. I refridgerated my Turbodog and angle/straight poured it into a 20 oz. mug. The head is incredible! Super retention, very foamy, bit of lacing. The smell was great, hints of chocolate malt, no cloying, bit of sweetness. It pours a very dark brown. I drank the first gulp...heaven. No over the top alcohol taste, despite it having a higher ABV than most beers. I felt no biting carbonation and the sweetness was not overpowering. I recommend Turbodog to everyone. A+!

A - brown ale, creamy head, patchy lacing, fairly dark brown
S - malts, red wine, there's a unique smell here that's almost like grape
T - sweet malt, mild hops, some roasted flavors, sweet toffee, very mild hops
M - very balanced on the palette, medium bodied
O - solid English Ale, really balanced balanced malt and hops and an interesting aroma like red wine which i find really nice.
