Keg at BrewDog Camden, London. Pours a bright, honey-yellow with a soft, white foam head. Lots of fresh hops in the nose, with a character very typical of BrewDog - lightly pissy with some grass and ripe citrus, orange. Nice flavor, quite bold and sweet, some strong sugars, white bread malts, grass, ripe orange, wet pine. Full bodied, slightly syrupy with fine to average carbonation. Warm to finish with definite alcohol notes, plenty of resinous pine and grass, some old urine, overripe tangerine. A very strong, sweet, interesting beer. I would never guess this is a lager.

Golden with white head. Nice big hoppy aroma, pine, grapefruit, little pissy, lemon, little mustiness, little floral. Taste is a bit less sharp, malt more present and some lager yeast character comes through, still quite hoppy, citrus. Not particularly bitter, quite balanced. Alcohol nowhere to be seen. Very nice

Keg at BD. Pale piss yellow. Very appealing nose. Possibly Motueka? Flavour is surprisingly smooth. Melon is a good shout. Soft sweetness with much less bitterness than you might expect. The 10% is a real iron fist in a velvet glove. Would never have guessed it. Perfumed lager. Maybe a touch of parma violets. Delicious.
