2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at Chris_o Pre GBBF Shindig 08. Pours without much head. Lovely orange gold to look at. Some odd meaty aroma. Not much in mouth and then some dry stinging hop on finish put more pork terrrine as well. Not one of their better efforts I think.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 5.4%. Quite hoppy aroma, a bit rough, hint of butter. Cloudy yellow colour. Very small white head. The flavour is malty and dusty, bordering on papery. Medium bitterness, a little grainy. A bit on the citric side, and tastes a little old, but OK drinkable.

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.
