Flying Dog Old Scratch Amber Lager (355ml Bottle)
Ideal for the Lager drinker who prefers amber beers, the "Scratch" is a smooth, malt-accentuated lager. Brewed in the "Steam-Style" tradition, scratch is a so-called hybrid beer that is fermented at medium temperatures to develop some ale and lager characteristics.
Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, with some hints of light malts. Nice amount of caramel and hints of chocolate and toffee. Very good for a steam beer.
Style originating in 18th century California, where brewers without access to refrigeration produced beers using lager yeasts and warm temperatures. These still retain some of the rounded character inherent in all lagers, but with a dose of ale fruitiness.
