3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The bottle looks simple, but good. The beer in the glass very dark, nice head. Starts surprisingly intense with bitter-dry notes, intense hoppy, earthy-scratchy. Dominating bitter notes also in the finish, doesnt get washy. The taste at all is not my favourite but I’m impressed how complex a 1,1% ABV beer can taste. Great!

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle@Home. Light golden, white head. Aroma with lots of hobs, pine,grapefruit, orange and pineapple. Taste is highly bitter with pine, grapefruit and not much else. Pretty good for a beer with such low ABV, but lacks some balance to really work well

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, copper colored beer, a beige head sits patiently on top. The aroma has lots of piney, resiny hops, some peaches too, leaving the malts in the far, far back. There’s some malty caramel sweetness in the flavor, balanced, or rather drowned (in a nice way), by piney hops giving a certain bitterness. Medium body. I could wish for more bitterness in this one, which is certainly the best beer I’ve had at such a low ABV. 100521

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. (Sampled November 2009) coppery orange brown color with a thin tan head. Loads of grapefruity hops in the aroma, with a decent amount of balance from the malts. Minerals in the flavor in addition to some of the citrus hops. Clearly very bitter, and different. I give a lot of credit to Brewdog for how drinkable I found this extreme experiment.

Redish color. Aroma is metal and hops. Taste is quite unbalanced, bitter and dry. A bit boring.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gnarly beer. Good amount of dark roast to it - aromas of chicory. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but not surprising for the ABV. By far the most flavorful low alcohol beer I have ever had.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
[330ml bottle, Cornelius Beer & Wine, Edinburgh] Quite a dark russet pour, aromas of hops, blackcurrant fruit and a bitter astringency. Initially a real assault on the palate, as a bitter bomb it’s like drinking pure hop juice, but after a while you adjust and start to get used to it. The problem is, having a total lack of alcohol there’s no sweetness to offset the ‘hops n’ water’ and it never stops being extremely bitter. As an Anti-Portman Group protest beer it delivers – but it’s my tastebuds that are doing the most protesting. [02/11/2009]

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep brown pour with a very light head. The nose is herbal and very spicy with a lot of soft caramelly maltiness. Pine and lots of bright hops. It’s very thin-bodied (as might be expected) but has a lot of pine and citrus. A little bit of resinousness. Intensely bitter with little else to balance it. It’s pretty interesting, but I’m not sure I really dig it.
