COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled;
Oblivious to accountant’s interfering and conventional corporate wisdom we do not cut corners like other Lager producers and use malt substitutes like corn and rice to keep our costs down. Our Lager has 100% malt base providing an fresh, sharp initial sweetness and a body and flavour, which endures where others prematurely disappear into a watery bland grave. A combination of the finest German and New Zealand hops add subtle tropical fruit notes and add complexity and depth to this most statuesque of Lagers.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2007 Aroma hits you with peppery bittering hops with caramel and biscuity malts. Taste is really bitter, carbonation is perhaps a bit much grassy peppery long finish. RERATE: Cask at blackfriers. Possibly one of the most attactive beers iv ever seen, perfect crustal clear with excellent lacing. Aroma has brewdog grassy, citrus, slightly cat piss, bready biscuity malts. Taste is excellent, again typical to brewdog, bittering, grassy dry super drinkable.

Bottle, at Chris´s, october 07. Golden, shinny color with a medium, fluffy white head. Aromathic, spicy hops aroma. Peppery, flowery hops flavor with a slight malty note. Medium mouthfeel, full hoppy spicyness with a dry, perfect balance. Excellent cross between a czech and german lager.

berkshirejohn (4645) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2008
[330ml bottle.] Golden straw with a quickly fading white head - moderate carbonation - intense floral hop aroma - sharp hoppy flavour to start with, developing a thick and malty body with tropical fruits - then a sharply bitter finish like a good bitter orange marmalade. Better than the average lager!

johninmelb (1126) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2009
Very enticing honey orange nose. Pours a deep golden copper with a pale head. Good lacing on the glass. Flavour is great on a sunny afternoon - initial sweetness and tropical fruit from the malt giving way to a long, bitter, moreish finish. Another great brewdog beer.

bottle from realale limited. Hop galore, very grassy nose with lots of leather and cardboard. lightest yellow, big bubbly white rim. Very very dry for a lager, but in a very good way. Sturdy backbone with a grassy finish. lovely beer.

Bottle. [thank you Mum and Dad for bringing this from Scotland]
Pours a very pale ywllow with a slight greenish hue. A small creamy white head settles on top - lots of bubbles reaching towards it. Aroma is very butterscotch and weak flowery hops. Lively andspritzy mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely hopped, very flowery and a little caramel. Finish is very dry - wonderful lager.
