Beer Review #56 Tire Bite Golden Ale

We start off Flying Dog Brewery week with Tire Bite Golden Ale. This beer comes in at 5.0% ABV and supports 16.5 IBUs.  The beer pours a golden color (shocking I know) and is perfectly clear. There is a fluffy white head to go along with it as well. On the nose this is a bit of malt, with biscuit and bread in there as well. There is also a slight hop nose, but nothing overwhelming.

The flavor is bready with a light malt sweetness. The beer is very crisp. The only thing that I found odd was that it finishes a bit sour, with some lemon flavors in there. Overall it was nice and light, just had a few strange flavors that I was not expecting.  The beer is light, but well bodied. I would say this is a solid summer beer. Light and refreshing but refreshing.

If you look around the beer review sites this beer has a very low rating. I don’t know if they changed the recipe or anything like that recently, but I don’t think it deserves the low ratings at all. Sure it isn’t something that is super unique or fully flavorful, but it is not supposed to be. It is a simple refreshing beer that fits in perfectly with warm weather. If you are looking for something light and refreshing and still has flavor this beer might be for you.

  1. Haven’t tried this one yet, but I know a lot of people drink this instead of lite beer. From what I recall, the calories per serving are right in line with what typical lite beers have. (I could recall wrong of course!)

  2. Yeah it really doesn’t hold a lot when it comes to a normal craft beer, but it is great for light drinking. There is more flavor in there any any typical “lite” beer would have and I think that is the point. Nothing flashy or special, but targeted at the people switching between macro and micro.
