Dog Bite High Gravity Lager

Dog Bite High Gravity Lager comes in jumbo 24oz cans that feature a fearsome three-headed dog and an equally fearsome 10% alcohol. It hails from Rochester, New York. It's brewed by the Rock Wall Brewing Company.

Dog Bite pours an ever-so-slightly hazy, bright gold colour with an off-white head. It has quite a faint aroma, with some fruit notes and some boozy warmth. There are sweet fruit flavours of apple and pear, backed against a warm, boozy base. Though it's potent for a lager, it doesn't taste overly strong. It makes for a dangerous drink, since it'll go to your head without going to your taste buds. A bit more hop body might be nice, but I'm not inclined to mess with a lager this strong.

A potent brew with some subtlety, Dog Bite is a good'un. If you happen across it, you should give it a try, particularly if you've got a clear schedule. I'm also a big fan of the huge can.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
