3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home, which I assume must have come from BrewDog Aberdeen. It pours golden orange/yellow, with a thick white head. The nose is sweet fruit - apple, white grape, yuzu?, sweet orange, honey and spice. The taste is pine, resin, light fruit - apple, yuzu, citrus pith, straw and spice, with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty good stuff all round.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Pours golden with white head. STRANGE! Herbal aroma, sausages! Tastes of basil, massive basil flavor, some thyme, bit lemon. Initial bitterness, followed by balanced citrus and herb taste. Too weird!
