330 ml. bottle. Pours a bright golden colour, qieth a two fingers head that leaves a good lace and ring. Smell of hops, herbs, grain and some citrus. Medium to full body, fizzy carbonation. Taste of grains, herbs and citrus. To me, a really great lager that does not pale in comparison to Urquell or Budvar.

KeefOz (991) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2015
BB 18/07/15. Poured a clear amber colour with a one-finger white frothy head that retained well and laced OK. Carbonation low and medium. Aroma of grain and light malt is typical of a lager. Taste is bitter/tart; not nice. Light body. Long tart finish. Not nice. A very disappointing beer from Brew Dog.

MrBlueSky93 (105) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle from Brewdog. Boring beer. Nothing Fake about it, it’s a lager, a boring, flavourless lager. True to the style, no individuality, light hops, crisp finish, slightly grassy. Not much more.

Part of my 2013 backlog, and tried at the Strait and Narrow, Lincoln. Pale golden colour with a white head. Aroma has biscuity malt. The taste was sweet, with a slight bitter finish.

[6397-20140628] Tap. Mild grainy yeast aroma. Clear, orange body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Bitter yeasty hops flavour has a light undercooked sourdough bread note. Medium body. Tasty. (7/3/8/3/15) 3.6

Hop_Hedonist (273) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2014
I dislike lager and as this is no ’fake’ but true to the style, I dislike it - no flavour, not crisp just meh. Could be a mass-produced pale lager from anywhere. Can’t believe BD produces a shit beer like this. Shame on you.

mkel07 (3822) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle from Wine Emporium 181114. Not really a fan. A bit too pale lagerish for me. Clear in the glass with lots of wet straw aroma. Okay on a hot day.

Pale golden color, clear; white head - malty taste, cereals, maybe some citrus notes - taste is slightly sweet and medium bitter - light body, rather thin texture, average carbonation - long bitter finish.
