Old Scratch Amber Lager - Flying Dog Brewery
Flying Dog's Old Scratch Amber Lager. This is one I've read great things about and was very excited to try. Pours a hazy copper with a decent head. The flavor is light caramel and fruity, but not citrusy. The finish is a little dry and almost tastes like butter. Perhaps more like butterscotch. Very smooth and drinkable. Another very good all-day beer. I'm not blown away by it, but I do like it and would certainly get it again!
To quote Flying Dog, quoting Hunter S. Thompson, "Good people drink good beer." Indeed!
