This beer was a middle of the evening experiment, as it was the first time I remember Rich O's having it on tap.
Beer was a fairly light and clear copper with a medium white head that left heavy lacing.
Smell was light and airy with a very mild hop characteristic mixed evenly with malt.
Taste was more substantial than the smell but not much. Balanced mix of malt and hops with a lingering after taste of english oak.
mouthfeel - medium carbonation but not much else to report
overall, this is what I would call a good lawn-mower beer. Great on an extremely hot day when you need a thirst quencher, but lacking in substance.
Serving type: on-tap

A relatively plain lager. Nice, amber color. Smell is pretty unappealing. Taste is plain, comparable to more main-stream lagers such as Yeungling or Sam Adams. Flying Dog is an excellent brewery, specifically in regards to ale, but this lager falls relatively short of what I've come to expect.
