Previously known as Dead Pony Club.

Bottle and keg: Filtered

Ingredients: Spring Blend, Cara and Crystal Malts; Simcoe, Citra and HBC hops.

This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better. Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. Thats why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels. Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers. Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets. This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule. Perfect for drinking by the bottle, case or even keg.

Encountered in the Ship and Castle in Aberystwyth. Up to this point we had been supping Erdinger and freedom brewerys Ubu and Wild Goose like they were going out of fashion, setting the tone to be very much a Teutonic/pint with assorted hedge cuttings within type affair. Craving something to cut through the cream like malty wheat-fest of proceedings thus far, I clocked the unassuming Dead Pony Club snuggled between some radioactive looking VK and San Miguel. Up to now, I have been partly terrified of Brewdogs offerings. With a penchant for paint blistering abvs and a most unfortunate first contact in a room temperature bottle of Punk IPA during my undergrad days, I had tended to steer towards my beloved European offerings and anything Wychwood could throw in the public domain. More fool me. On a gamble and a desperate need for hops, I took the plunge and opted for the Celt. And my word what a win. At a extremely suppable 3.8, this hop hand grenade immediately threw citrus, pine and the essence of sheer vibrance in my hooter, demanding an immediate and very un-connoisseur like gulp. On the palette Dead Pony Club continues the citric theme with an incredibly grapefruity bittersweet taste, the hop elements immediately forthright with a smooth transition to an dry finish, practically begging another sip. The body is difficult to comment as this superseded an erdinger, understandably the pint of liquid weetabix still dominating the mouth feel palette. Overall? As you can probably gather this wee Beastie of a bottle did not last long, a superbly refreshing beer, the bittersweet flavour profile perfectly suited for either a sumer scorcher refresher or a low abv counter-foil to creamy curries. A winner in my books, happy supping!

Hazy orange beer, medium off-white head. Nose is citric hops, some earthy notes. Flavor is hops forward, grassy notes, citrus, caramel. Earthy hops and bitterness in the finish. Has more body than I expected for the ABV. Not a bad quaffer.

Bottle. Light orange colour with minimal head. The smell is very nice, fruity, citrusy, grassy. Rather mild, sweet and fruity taste with some herbal tones. Followed by a bitter finish which is quite heavy, but not very long-lasting.

Bottle, 0.33l. Clear light orange color with big, frothy white head which leaves nice lacing on the pint glass. Lively carbonation. Fruity and citrus aroma. Taste is mild sweet followed by some herbs and strong bitterness. Overall delicious beer.

Aolidissima, rinfrescante. Ambrata, velature rosse, aroma di arancia e pompelmo oltre ad un po di caramello. Estramente dunk, appiccicosa al palato e piena di agrumi. Croccante e buona, s lascia bere con molta facilit

Kolor: Złocisty, piwo jest lekko opalizujące. Piana: Obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, ale niezbyt trwała. Koronka śladowa. Aromat: Słodkie owoce tropikalne wymieszane z żywicą. Intensywny i bardzo przyjemny. Smak: Wytrawne, pełnia niska, ale piwo nie jest wbrew moim obawom wodniste. Goryczka niska (mogłaby być dużo wyższa) i krtka. W smaku więcej jest żywicy niż jakichkolwiek owocw. Jest przyzwoicie. Wysycenie: Średnie do wysokiego. Jak na mj gust trochę za wysokie. Opakowanie: Fajna puszka z nowej serii opakowań Brew Doga. Brak składu na minus. Uwagi: Dobre APA z fajnym aromatem i niezłe w smaku. Niski woltaż na plus. Na minus zdecydowanie piana i za niska goryczka.

On tap: Orange / light brown haze colour, with creamy stabil white head. Visualy medium carbonation. Aroma is sweet, prevails notes of fruits. Taste is also Friuty sweet, with notes of oranges, mango, pineapple, etc. Finish is bitter and slightly dry. Malt sweetness and hop bitterness are medium and they are very well balanced. Surprisingly good beer for so low abv.

Nonshaugen (44) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2015
Session ale for hop lovers, 3,8% ABV make it light and very drinkable. After a bottle of this you just want one thing -- another one. American C-hops all the way through, lively carbonation. Oh, yeah, could be drinking this almost all day long.
