Flying Dog Classic Pale Ale

Style: Pale Ale
Brewer: Flying Dog Brewery
Location: Denver, Colorado, USA
Alcohol: 5.3%

The namesake drink of the Flying Dog Brewery is mildly hoppy with an aftertaste that occasionally boarders on the sour end of the spectrum, especially when consumed from a glass. Because of this, I recommend drinking straight from the bottle. Goes great with pasta dishes of the non-acidic variety, such as a beef stroganoff.

Perhaps the best aspects of the Flying Dog series of beers are the labels, as each style of brew is decorated with it's own original painting by tab-dropping artist, Ralph Steadman.

Overall score: 8.1
