Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2012
In short: A well malted and well hopped citrusy so-called “Bitter” that tastes more like an American APA/IPA. Good beer
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed fresh (probably fresh) one day after purchase in a neighbourhood country (Norway)
The look: Clear red-copper body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Pleasant moderately hoppy nose showing citrusy hops (all kind of citrus fruits) over some sweet malty notes. Aroma is both more malty and more hoppy than I would expect from a 4.5% Bitter. Taste has a candy-like malt sweetness (jelly beans) and red berries along with citrusy and leafy hops with strong resinous character. Well balanced beer with a tasty medium bitterness. With its rather substantial sweet malty body and a generous American style hopping, to me this 4.5% Bitter tasted more like an APA (even an IPA) than a Bitter (current ratebeer style is Bitter). Whatever it is, I enjoyed it, Brewdog can brew some nice session beers, please stop the 40% abv madness. The Alpha Dog is the leader of the pack, the one who gets to mate with all the female dogs of his territory, that’s so cool, I wish I was the Alpha of my area in Montreal, that would be awesome, I would love to have sex with all the female dogs in the area.

olsvammel (3556) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle through a friend. Fruity and sweet smell and taste. Easy to drink and pretty decent considering the low ABV. Doesn’t stand out though.

worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2012
Clear dark amber with a thin lastjng, lacy rather frothy beige head. Smells of dark berries like blackberries. Roasted malt, caramel and way to much hop for a bitter. Watery thin body. Moves it to more like an amber ale with IPA hops in it. Citrus, and hops. Medium oily body. Sweet berry malt start with a light veg and a bitter nutty hop dry finish. Bitter. The finish is rather off.
