3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
20th October 2009
Clear brown beer, frothy creamy head. Neutral watery palate. Moderate carbonation. Surprisingly hoppy! Bitter fresh grapefruit. Pretty well flavoured for it’s abv but inevitably a little thin bodied.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In bottle at Craig’s BrewDog tasting. Pours a dark golden colour with a thin yellowish head. Aroma of pine, pineapple and caramel. Similar flavours and nicely bitter. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. A grassy bitter linger. I prefer this to the 0.5%.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml botle. Best low abv i tried ever. High hop concentration makes it tasty. If not told some may not guess is a low alcohol one.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle in Oslo. Hoppy, citrusy aroma. Taste was watery bitterness, no balance. Serves as proof that good beer needs alcohol presence.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
awesome selection from secret santa, thank you a ton for this one! wow, what a damn interesting brew. damn impressive for 1.1% imho. dark red pour with and orangeish khaki head that leaves nice lacing and spotting. sure the body is a tad thin, but bolder and fuller than i had thought. its fairly hoppy, though a tad old at this point i think. lots of bitterness still present though. this would make a wonderful alternative for a sipper at ball games or other events. delicious super session beer.

2.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice brown with slight off-white head. Nice strong malty, hoppy aromas. Strong maltiness with nice hop balance; like an extra pale ale remincent of sierra nevada pale and arrogant bastard (without the arrogance)...a very flavorful/aromaful beer that just lacks a bit of the body...and alcohol.
