3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2015 33cl bb 06/2014, bierpost. Finally, another below the critical par 4 standout sessioner. Enticing exotic aromas of maracuja & mango luring you into a juicy, light & still crisp dry pale/blonde ale. Simcoe? coming in with a quick bitter kick. Short finish, cliffhanging into the absent next bottles. Great, sessionable stuff fit for the Mrs & co. Another benchmark for Brewdog, I hasten to begrudge - the vapid boasting on the label (along with the import price) makes it hard to truly love their beers for being confident pinnacles and rejuvenators of quite a few styles. Rerate 2nd bottle 1 week later: have to admit that there is a distinct air freshener aroma to the hop profile, also spilling over into the taste and faint aftertaste due to low ABV. 4.1->3.9

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Sainsbury’s.
Bubbly off-white head, disappears quickly with little lacing, clear amber body. Load of hops on the nose, tropical fruit. Flavour is grapefruit, apple, grass with a slightly bitter aftertaste, lingering grass and citrus. Lots of flavour in there considering the low ABV. Mouthfeel is good, medium carbonation.

Drank from a bottle at home. A really tasty low-alcohol beer. There’s some fresh fruits and sweetness in the taste in addition to some hops. Really good!

In the Aroma i can find a hint of caramel and nice strong hops, citrus. Nice hazy orange colour with a white head. The hops play the main role here and the bitterness is rely good. Light body with a nice medium carbonation. A nice refreshing beer low in alcohol.

#35 BrewDog. 33 cl. bottle @ ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske. BBF 02/05/2014. Appearance is dark textbook amber with a stable off-white head. Nose is typical BrewDog hop-profile, herbal hops, pine resin, pretty hoppy but not brutal mixed with some caramel malts. Taste is full of Brewdog herbal hops, some pine, faint mango mixed with caramel malts, hint hay, resin, crystal, oily, some sugar that balances out,… Easy body, hoppy. I am not a big fan of the BredDog hop profile but this carries a nice hop profile, is very balanced & easy to drink. This is a nice sessioning brew & would be pretty nice if sold at an appropriate price. This is comparable to their Punk IPA but way better, this makes their Punk IPa obsolete in my opinion. Lovely name.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy orange colour with a medium and creamy, light beige head. Nice fruity and hoppy aroma with grapefruit, grass, some caramel, oat, oranges and pine. The flavour follows up with more grassy hops and grapefruit. Slick and soft mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. Incredibly flavourful for a lower strenght beer. Wonderful and balanced.
