Got this in a growler from Elkton; an easy to drink amber ale; with a very nice head, that stays

Despite the gimmicky 'doggie-style' name and art work, this is a pretty tasty everyday ale.

Pours a fairly thin amber color creating a decent white head. Maintains a thin layer of foam throughout the glass. No lacing noted.

Nose is predoninantly restrained citrus west coast hops with some faint piney/orange notes.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp and thin. A good refreshing ale

Taste revelas a nice balance between lightly toasted malts and some aggressive citrus/piney hops. Finishes smooth, moderately bitter and crisp.

Pours a darkish copper with a fairly small head that is retained well and leaves some lacing. Smells of citrus and piney hops with a buttery note in the background. Taste is hoppy, with plenty of floral hop presence and citrusy fruitiness. The finish is very dry, with a slightly sour note that lingers on the palate. Mouthfeel is crisp and rewarding, with the aforementioned dryness in the finish giving it some distinction from most other pale ales, and the drinkability is very good. I'd barely noticed how fast it was going down until it was gone. A classic example of the American-style pale ale.

Color: slightly hazy brown with some amber

Smell: well balanced. mostly malt sweetness with a little bit of hop

Taste: reminds me of an octoberfest. mostly malt throughout with just a hint of bitterness

Mouthfeel: low-med body with moderate carbonation. goes down real easy

Notes: i dont know, i think it might be better with just a little more bitterness. just a little. but this is a great easy drinking pale

Pretty good pale ale.

I always thought I wasn't a fan of pale ale's but now I'm coming to find out they aren't so bad (or I was just drinking bad beer). The hops were good, nice spicey bite, but just enough to give you flavor. I didn't have to milk this one because of too many hops it went down smooth.. I'd try another.

Overall an above average beer in my opinion.. if you can get it take it.

Poured from a 12 oz. brown bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass.
A: Copper amber color. Fluffy/foamy white head, retains well. Medium carbonation. Rings of lacing at the top.
S: Small hops, citrus. Kinda wheaty/grassy too. Oddly a little medicinal.
T: Watery, some citrus/floral hop tastes and a bit of grain.
M: Watery and refreshing with a slight hoppy nip, which is nice.
D: Okay. Easy to put back but not altogether enticing.
