Flying Dog Amber Lager

Old Scratch poured a reddish copper color, with a thumb width, off white head. The nose is dominated by big bready malt, with light fruity esters and a light yeastiness.

The body is smooth, bready malt, with a faint sweetness, and a few toasted notes. The hops start to peek through on the backend. The beer finishes with a light dryness.

Overall, this is a solid sessionable ale, perfect for the Fall weather. There is nothing spectacular here, but it serves its purpose. The best part of this beer is its balance, it is almost perfect. Worth a try, but nothing to go out of he way for.
