    Early on in their history, was this not Flying Tire’s flagship beer and marketed as a kolsch? It is a clear golden pour topped by a white frothy head. Lacing is minimal. The aroma is grainy with hints of light fruit and European hops. Mouthfeel is average. Flavor is grainy malt with a bitter finish. There is definitely a Kolsch influence here.

    I'm not a fan of golden ales, and despite high expectations from this brewery, this didn't help matters any. A clear golden pour with a medium sized white head. Aroma is grassy malt, some light fruits, a hint of yeast, and dark fruits. The flavour is grainy malt with a bitter finish.

    Golden/straw color with a bright white, fizzy, soapy head with decent size and average retention. Small amount of lacing left on the glass. This beer is mostly hazy and became more clear after it warmed. (chill haze?) This beer smells clean and fresh. Picking up some faint, but well balanced notes of wheat. Some dry biscuits and bread. The aroma needed a bit more "kick" I thought. The taste was bready and brought out the wheat flavors. Some subdued sweetness of lemon and only minor touches of orange. Very, very, very small amounts of bitterness. Medium to medium/thin mouthfeel. Left some traces of flavor on the palate. Not a whole lot however. It is crisp and smooth. Very refreshing. This woud be a great brew for Spring and Summer. Very easy to drink and refreshing. The beers characteristics are somewhat subpar however. Nothing bad, but nothing really outstanding either. It's solid and easy going.

    A pretty poor representation of Kolsch... pours weak, carbonated clear yellow with grassy aromas - medium white head that dissapates quickly and produces no lacing. Grassy tones invade the flavor as well. Thin in the mouth. Moderate hops and malt but smacks of so many mass-produced clear yellow beers... Bud, Miller, Coors. Not worthy.

    Light golden yellow, ample carbonation. Small white head that disipates quickly. Thin mouthfeel, not much taste. Very smooth, and easy drinking. Wouldn't pick it up again.

    12oz bottle, shaker pint glass. Pours a clear pale gold with obvious carbonation. Thin white head vanishes quickly, no lacing. Nose has a light sweetness with a little citrus. Tastes like it smells, very low-key but nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing, nice brew for a hot day at the ballpark.

    Pours out in a clear golden colour with a small white foam. Grass, biscuits, straw and mild lemon in the aroma. Medium to lihjy-bodied with touches of biscuits, straw, wet grass and mild lemon. Rather short finish of straw, grass and dough.

    fizzy yellow beer...doesn't arrogant bastard warn us of such beers? a combination of a brewer i don't particulartly care for and a style i don't care for = a pretty sub par beer. Huge surprise.

    Comes out of the bottle a clear wan straw-yellow, but with a very thick and fluffy, it not persistent, white head. Aroma is about average strength, malty with a touch of hops. Flavor is mostly malty with a little hop zing. Texture is pleasantly smooth so it goes down pleasantly. Not Flying Dog's best, but OK.

    This brew poured a golden color with a small sized white head which left a decent lacing. Aroma is on the sweet side with a hint of orange. Malts are fruity. There is just a touch of hop bitterness and spiciness. Light and refreshing. A drinkable summer beer. Mouthfeel is medium. Finish is clean and smooth. Overall, nice for the style.
