Flying Dog Under Dog Atlantic Lager

This 4.7% ABV lager is from the Flying Dog Brewery of Frederick, Maryland. The drawings on their bottle are from Ralph Steadman, famous illustrator for Hunter S. Thompson. There is a quote attributed to Hunter on the bottle, "Good people drink good beer."

The beer pours a clear and pale golden yellow. There is an inch of pure white head. The aroma is golden grain, straw, grassy, and lager funkiness. The taste is grassy, grain, straw, a touch of sweetness, followed by a bracingly bitter finish. It drinks crisp and dry. This is an excellent American lager.
