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

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present, acquired at the local Binny's in a mixed six pack. Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Pours a nice clear amber lager with no bubble action, and a wonderful fluffy two finger head that dissipates rather quickly. Scattered lacing.

S - Smells of pale malts, faint juicy hops, slight hint of some kind of spice perhaps.

T - Crisp malts and clean finish paired with some very nicely sublte grassy pine needle hops and a dry feel, yet with minimal bitterness. Smooth and refreshing. Somewhat of a hoppy sweetness on the back end, also.

M - Feel is slightly dry and resinous with some piney aftertaste present for a little while. I guess I would say it has somewhat of a creamy aftertaste going for it also, a little bit.

Overall, definitely a very light refreshing lager from Flying Dog, the first lager beer I've had of theirs, and I would be looking forward to another for sure. A modest 4.7% abv, a perfect sippin beer for those lazy hot summer days. Reminds me a bit of a lighter version of the Redhook Long Hammer IPA. Definitely a Flying Dog beer I'd have again.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #64 (May 2012):

LOOK: Great lacing, clear pale gold and bubbly

SMELL: Floral, hop oil, leafy, bready, crackers, clean, faint spiciness, Asian pear

TASTE: Crisp snap, lighter body, hop oil, soft herb, dried grass, walnut skin, moderate bitterness, spicy; grainy, dry finish

Pretty easy to drink, though the finish does become a bit too grainy and bitter without anything to accompany it. We applaud them for brewing something that is yellow and fizzy in a sense, something “craft beer” needs a bit more of, as it should not be forgotten.

Poured into a pilsner a clear light golden with a large fluffy crown that settled ever so slowly leaving multiple broken chunks of lace behind.Mild toasted grain,iron,and lightly sweet caramel malts in the nose,it's not a clean nose wich to me is a good thing.Toasted bready malt with some herbal hop notes on the palate,again mild caramle and iron finish out the flavor profile.This is a damn nice lager here,Iam gonna be drinking this on Monday while out grilling.

12 oz can. Pours clear light golden with a medium pillowy white head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet bready caramel malts and noble hops and a little fruit.

The flavor is sweet bready toffee malts with a medium spicy noble hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with some spritzy carbonation and a little watery.

Overall, a decent fairly well balanced lager - still a little sweet for me.

A 355ml bottle with a BB of June 2013. Picked up some time ago from Trembling Madness in York. I love Ralph Steadman's art, though the label on this brew is a trifle disturbing. Is the dog attempting to suckle at a giant pair of tits, or a different part of the anatomy?

Poured into a straight pint glass. A bright golden colour with faint haze and good carbonation. Yields a decent head of white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding. Aroma of light malt with hints of noble hops, grass, very mild pine and earthy yeast. Dry and rather subtle.

Tastes of light malt with a crisp bitter finish. Notes of grass, peppery noble hops, earthy yeast and a whisper of pine. Surprisingly dry, with a moderate bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and unusually tingly. Nice carbonation and decent body. Slightly astringent, with an aftertaste of bitter noble hops and yeast.

Pretty good. Not the best craft lager I've tried, but a distinct cut above any macro crap. The noble hops and earthy yeast add depth to the aroma/flavour, but both seem too restrained. In particular, the flavour doesn't linger and falls flat as you finish a mouthful. A decent brew - worth trying if you come across it.
