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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle@home from Brewdog online. Pours deep amber-brown with fluffy cream head and sweet caramel, peaches and malt on the nose. Quite sweet up front there’s a pleasing hint of red apple and some bitterness followed by a snap of malt and a long drying bitter finish. Medium carbonation this makes a decent enough session beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (330ml from Peckhams, Glasgow):
Biscuit malt aroma to begin with along with the tiniest bit of skunk and some spice on the nose too. There is some light, grassy hops and a touch of citrus too.
Tanned head on top of a reddish amber beer. The head is part foam, part bubbles and slowly recedes to thinner,pinky sized foamy one.
Malts & spice to begin with, there is some light caramel and a lingering nutty flavour. There is a bit of fruit in there from the middle towards the end of the sip that includes some toasted bitterness and hints of tropical fruit and berries; a real change up from the nose but a nice one.
Medium bodied and with a sweet, fruity feel to it along with medium carbonation and a lingering wet, bitter aftertaste.
This one started slow with not much in the way of an appealing smell, somehow I was expecting it to be more fruity and stronger when it came across like an English bitter but the taste was great and just what I had been expecting. There is a good mix of fruit and malts that go down well and the beer feels great as well

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012 Aroma has citrus, caramel and nuts. Good aroma with nice nuances. Colour is ruby red, head brownish. Taste has slightly roasted toffee and nuts first but this balanced with hops. Nice and crisp so sweetness is not owerwhelming. Finish is long and dry. Medium bodied and medium carbonated. Easy to drink and enjoy, good flavors and balance. A good one.
