"Fred" is described as a "Golden Special Ale" on the label, but RateBeerAdvocate consider it a barleywine. I didn't know this until I took a break to write my text review, but I wish I had known that going into it because I was expecting something in the Belgian strong pale ale style or something similar. Anyways, this is the last of the three beers by Hair Of The Dog I got while in NYC over a month ago. I'm not sure I understand the hype about this brewery.
