Theydon_Bois (9912) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle at home - 23/09/12 thanks to Steve (Beers I’ve known). Hazy reddish amber with a big frothy off-white head. Nose comprises hops, biscuit malts, light fruit and toffee tones and a whiff of glue. Malt heavy in the flavour, toffee, biscuit and a little orange and fruit. Medium bodied, soft but quite evident carbonation and a little on the wet side. Drinkable but I wouldn’t be seeking this one out.

Pours clear golden color with a small head. Aroma of fruits, malts and grass. Flavor of mild hops, hay, caramel and malts, some mild fruits also. Boring.

0,33 l bottle, bought online at Brewdog-shop.
Poured amber-brown with a small creamy tan head. Moderated aroma with light resin, caramel, citrusses. Medium bodied with light caramel, grassy grapefruit bitterness. Drinkable, not a special one.

rjkreid (191) - SCOTLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Biscuit malt with hints to dark fruit mixed with sour apple and spice and a smokey note which is interesting. Quite a sweet brew which has hints of having hung about in the bottle to long. Reminds me of sweeter, less hoppy version of 5am Saint.

AshtonMcCobb (2912) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2012
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours a beautiful amber colour with a red tinge. The nose is of ginger bread and something tangy that I can’t put my finger on. The taste is of cake mixture, crunchy red fruit, possibly cranberries, then biscuits to finish. The palate is medium bodied with a tangy texture and a fairly clean finish. Overall, good but more interesting than good.

TyggaBrown (420) - NORWAY - SEP 5, 2012
The AlphaDog is great with fatty, heavy food, such as pork, and is perfectly heavy for an ale. It unfortunately lacks a little in taste and flavour.

SimplySike (961) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2012
33cl Bottle. Poors hazy amber/red with beige head. Aroma is caramel, malt, peache, apple. Taste a bit sour bitter, sweet. Mouth-feel thin. Desent beer, nothing extraordinary.
