3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice crisp golden coloured body with an orange tint and a very thin white head - almost non-existant. Aroma of fresh malt, lemons, cleanser, a touch of sweetness and plenty of strong hops! Medium-bodied; Sharp malty flavour with a great amount of citrus fruits, alcohol and the perfect amount of hops noticeable. Aftertaste lasts quite a while - the hops and malt blend perfectly and show very well. Overall, a very nice beer - definitely worth trying if you can find it! I liked this one just on its own! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from the UtoBeer Market Stall at the Borough Market in Borough (London), England on 29-November-2008, sampled on Christmas Day (25-December-2008) at home in Washington.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle - - Olutkellari, Helsinki - -
Liver pate aroma, a touch of pepper. Slightly thin, but also sticky sweet palate. The liver pate carries into the taste too. Heads towards marmite or bovril as it warms. Definitely salty. Very dull. 1-dimensional sticky sweet hoppiness, nothing interesting, no crispness, emasculated. Better than the Sam Smiths India Ale we had at the same time, but that is about as positive as I can get. Both are hideously sugary. The line between the BrewDog brewers heads and their arses is certainly blurred.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clear amber colour with a lacing, small white head. Herbal hop nose. Good bitterness, quite herbal flavours, a touch of astringent metal that cannot be hidden. Medium body. Could do with a bit more punch- probably one Brew Dog brew that will not achieve cult status

330ml bottle from <i>Cornelius Beer & Wine</i>, Edinburgh. Pours a light golden body under a moderate, white head. Grass-hoppy to the nose. Plain floral hoppy flavour, ending with dry and smooth bitterness. Natural carbonation. Yeah, it really is a lager that actually taste something (Edinburgh 23.10.2008).

bottle at home, no head, golden colour, as far as lagers go quite sturdy, even though i wouldn’t have expected it to be quite as thin. lovely lager though.
