Checking in with one more brew from Bone Up Brewing that I wanted to showcase this week.  This one caught my eye because it reminded me of something they released a little while back that I really enjoyed.

Beer Name: Uni-Dog

Brewery: Bone Up Brewing Company (Everett, MA)

Style: Red Ale

ABV: 4.6%

Description: Best enjoyed while “fearfully scurrying away from a cat,” this red ale was brewed with Massachusetts grown Rakau hops and named in honor of a departed Pyrenees named Domino.

Appearance: It poured to a light caramel and amber colored body topped off by a firm line of white foam.

Smell: Subdued malty sweetness.

Taste: Mild caramel and citrus sweetness upfront followed by a dry, malty finish.  There was also an underlying toastiness throughout bringing a smooth, even presence to the beer.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Hype: Not a whole lot, though seeing this beer did remind me of how much I miss the dog-themed glass I had from them that met with an unfortunate accident.

Overall: This was a tasty, no nonsense beer that really found a way to hit the spot.  Perhaps not the flashiest of brews, it was still a nice beer to kick back and relax with.
