2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Ugly looking beer with no head. Unbalanced in both aroma and flavor. Bad chemical touch.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Wow, this is a pretty lager. Normally I can’t be bothered to comment on how beers look nowadays but this one is an unusually lovely looking lager. Thick, off white head, leaving behind lacing as it recedes, atop a dark gold body with streams of bubbles ascending. Has to be a 5 for a lager. Well, might look better unfiltered but 5 it gets.
Unfortunately there’s mainly grain on the aroma along with a touch of sweetness. The first sip takes care of any worries the aroma gives. Very full bodied, hint of sourness and a some snappy if not so strong bitterness on the finish.

Bottled@SBWF2009. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some other sweetish malts along with some mild hoppyness. Flavour is quite much the same in a nice balance.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the box that Brewdog sent me free! Clear golden colour with a nice big white head. Smell of citrus hops, with grapefruit, lemon, lime, all fresh and appetising notes. Good bitter hops in the taste followed by a suprisingly sweet malt body, finishing dry again. Fresh grassy hops. very nice. Refreshing like lagers should be, but tasty. Prickly carbonation. Yes, Brewdog have done it again.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. The arrogance is easily misjudged with aggressiveness. A pointless beer without any worth mentioning features than pointless.

Golden color, mostly vanishing head. Fruity, malty, a bit woody nose. Sweet malty, mostly hops, a bit Czech like bitterness. Quick finish. It’s just a lager - for being a BrewDog!

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden coloured with a big white head leaving quite impressive lazings. Aroma is bready malty, lightly but sharp hoppy, somewhat flowery. Flavour starts ok, somewhat flowery and malty but it ends on a terrible phenolic, burned rubber kind of note. Very chemical, metallic and off with a dry bitter unpleasant ending.
