    This is pretty damn cool for a small beer, and a hopeless one at that. Aroma and flavor are crisp...pilsner like but with a fruity squashy kick. So very easy to drink and good even among the big beers.

    On tap @ Hair of the Dog. My starter beer at HotD. Light golden pour, short white head, some lacing. Lightly sweet malt aroma and initial flavor, very mild, no noticeable squashes, but still very drinkable. Like I said, great starter beer for pretty early in the day.

    Sampled on draft at the HotD Brewery. Sipped this one while discussing it with Alan Sprints and learned that it was brewed using no hops at all. The tannins in the squash provide the bitterness. Perhaps if the squash is in the full boil, then that's why there are no noticible squash characteristics. This beer cost more to brew than any other Hotd brew. An enjoyable beer and a good conversation.

    Light brown color. Medium head. Aroma is malty and fruity. A medium bodied ale made with squash. OK…. Malts are fruity and sweet. Slighlty spicy. Nicely balanced. Very smooth and esy to drink. This would make a great session beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

    Pours and looks like a macro lager/pilsener. I didn’t get much aroma of squash. It’s tangy, highly carbonated & quite drinkable.
