Flying Dog Numero Uno

Numero Uno Summer Cerveza is the new summer seasonal from Flying Dog Brewery. This beer was originally released last June as part of the Brewhouse Rarities series. I didn't realize I'd had it before until I started drinking it and then I had the "flashback" to last year. As previously, although it isn't the type of beer I'd normally drink, I did enjoy it.

The beer pours a bright golden yellow with a thin white head. The aroma is that of grain with lemon and lime zest. The overall flavor is toasted malt with a refreshing citrus twinge. It finishes dry and clean.

This might also be a good beer to keep on hand to share at those summer cookouts with your less than adventurous friends. It's much more flavorful than the popular swill that requires a lime wedge (or salt) to be palatable.

At just 4.9% ABV, Flying Dog Numero Uno Summer Cerveza would make a good beer for those warm summer afternoons. It's light bodied and goes down easily. I cracked this one open as we sat down for a family movie night, and I think I finished it before the opening credits were done.

The beer reviewed here was a promotional sample from the brewery. My impressions are provided of my own free will.
