3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ BrewDog, Camden. A crystal clear golden one with a nice medium sized off-white head. A bit low on the aroma, but I get hoppy and grassy tones. Also hints of caramel, zesty melon yeast and that’s it. Yep, it’s an imperial pilsner alright, but still I don’t find it too boozy or sweet. Alcohol hit’s the taste buds first, then some clear yeasty thing that continues. Light sweet in the finish. 20.07.2012

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
250ml from tap at the BrewDog bar in Manchester. Bright golden body with a small, bubbly white head. Aroma of grass and pine with a subdued hint of alcohol. Hoppy taste offering notes of pineapple and lemon and bitter, dried fruits towards the ending. Integrated, but noticeable alcohol. Rather unusual for a pilsner type of beer. Fine partner to my cheese platter. 07.07.2012.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint at Brewdog Camden. It pours a clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma is mainly hops and booze. Some floral quality to it as well. Taste is lightly cereals, some flowery notes and hops. Booze is quite obvious but in a good way. Body id quite full with good carbonation. Overall, interesting but not my favuorite style for sure.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
11th June 2012
At Brewdog Camden - 2 ruinous halves, the second courtesy of Keen Massey - cheers mate! Clear gold beer, good white head. Smooth palate, soft bit with a crisp trailing edge. Nelson Sauvin skunk. A little pine, grass and mild orange citrus. Subtle tropical fruits and then floral notes with a trace of mint. Subtle red fruits in the finish. A wonderfully complex beer, every mouthful full of interest and so dangerously drinkable with that minty coolness. Superb!

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at BrewDog Camden. It pours clear golden yellow, with a thick white head. The nose is rather complex: Brasso, grass, wood, dough, hay, perfumed, sweet ambergris, sage and floral notes. The taste is grass, orange, underlying white sugar, dough, straw, herbal, hay, resinous hops and lemon zest, with a bitter-dry finish. Well-hidden alcohol. Medium body and fine carbonation. Interesting nose, but this is not my sort of thing.

On keg at The BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh. Pours a lemon yellow colour with a fair white head. Aroma of lemon, pine, pineapple and alcohol. Similar flavours and mildly bitter with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lingering pineapple and alcohol. Nice and hoppy. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at BrewDog. Slightly hazy yellow, bubbly head. Slightly perfumed nose, touch of caramel and lemony hops. Similar flavours, sweet and syrupy, not as bitter as anticipated. Boozy finish. Ok.
