Barley's White Dragon (7/10)

Barley's Smokehouse offered this beer in June 2013.  I've finally gotten around to sharing the review.

White Dragon pours a cloudy orangey gold. It features a thin white head that dissipates quickly, leaving behind spotty lacing that lingers. 

The flavor starts kind of orangey and alcohol warming. Then, it gets a little piney hoppy after that. The finish is orange peel bitterness with some hops.

It's a beer that I like, but don't love.  Beer Advocate only has a couple of reviews, which give it 4/5.  Rate Beer has a couple that give it only a 3.6 out of 5.  I'm rating it 7/10.

Being that this is a Barley's original beer, you're probably not going to find it anywhere other than their Ale House #1 downtown by the convention center or at the Smokehouse in Grandview.
