Black Dog Ale

$4.00 for a 16oz pour at Taco Mac on the East-West Connector, Austell, GA, USA.
Advertised there as an English Amber – whatever the hell that is! Do these people have a CLUE? Anyway – sent one in a frozen glass back, and it’s still served too cold.
When it warms, this was much better than I was expecting. A simple pour with good clarity, a bronze body and some half decent lace.
Biscuit malts dominate with a nicely balanced finish. Some hops in the ending. This reminded me a lot of a simple English bitter, and if I could have removed the carbonation and made it warmer this could have been a nice clone of a simple ESB.
Drinkability was pretty good, and I enjoyed the relatively low ABV simplicity. Tasty would be the word. Half-decent, I would visit it again.
