Flying Dog Old Scratch Amber Lager
McGrath's in Harrisburg had Old Scratch Amber Lager from Flying Dog on tap so I gave it a try. The beer is amber in color and has almost no aroma. The taste is sweet and malty, with a crisp hop accent. The finish remains sweet despite the bitter hops and is thoroughly enjoyable. The alcohol content is 5.5% ABV. The Old Scratch is one of my favorite beers on draft at McGrath's and I will be sad to see it go when the keg is kicked (which has happened since I got around to posting this review). However, I plan on picking up a case of it in the future.
