Flying Dog Doggie Style Pale Ale


Doggie Style is flying high after the New York Times rated it their #1 pale ale after a recent tasting.
Flying Dog's Pale Ale poured a clear, amber color with a two fingered width, off white head. The aroma is malty, with a light nuttiness to it. The body is smooth, medium bodied, with some light fruit sweetness and a little more of the nuttiness from the nose. The backend offers a hoppy balance before leading to a dry finish. The beer left coated rings of hanging lace on the glass.
Overall, this is a very nice pale ale. I would be hard pressed to call it my favorite but it offers plenty for the drinker to savor while staying a bit restrained. A nice beer to try.
