This is Never Mind the Anabolics. A 6.5% India Pale Ale infused with creatine, guarana, ginseng, gingo, steroids, maca powder, matcha tea and kola nut. It is about time the greatest sporting event on the planet was not sponsored by fast food companies, sugary fizzy drinks producers or monolithic multi-national brewers. A burger, can of fizzy pop and an industrial lager are not the most ideal preparation for the steeple chase or the dressage (for human or horse). So we decided to give the athletes something that was going to make them happier and better. A way to relax before a big event and at the same time increase the chances of winning. This summer, revive the spirit of the people’s Games from the comfort of your favourite bar. Never Mind the Anabolics takes its lead from the relentless marketing campaigns of global fast food chains and international mass production breweries that replace the sporting spirit with a fast buck, a greasy burger and an ugly plastic cup of insipid, fizzy, yellow lager. Dedication, training and passion are things of the past; Kick back, put your giant torch down and let our performance enhancing ingredients do the hard work. It’s not the taking part, it’s the winning that counts

Bov (10215) - Bienne, - NOV 17, 2012
from Erzbierschof - hazy copper-amber beer with a solid beige foam left; aroma of tea and berries; medium-bodied and gently sticky; some astringency and with a dry and fair bitterness; slightly metallic and with long hoppy tones of red fruits

milo91hd (154) - Lecce, ITALY - AUG 5, 2014
Ricorda molto la classica IPA della brewdog, con un bel coloro ambrato limpido e una buona schiuma, aroma e sapori forse sono un po troppo mischiati fra di loro, comunque buona

Iz okay. Petit goût de biscuit et amertume pas trop intense (bouteille passée date depuis un an et demi). Légers arômes métalliques et poivrés. Pas tellement à la hauteur des produits brewdog.

Eructoblaster (3290) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy amber body with a thin off-white creamy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with flowery, caramel, and herbal hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries piney, yeasty, and citrusy notes. Ends with a long bitter finish. Enjoyable.

ej (925) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2013
Pours a rather clear, dark golden with an inch of offwhite head. Intense bubblegum-ish aroma, mixed with some hints of spice and grass. Taste is weird, kinda medicinal at first, then finished with a bitter and somewhat dry aftertaste. Body is close to light and carbonation is medium+

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle from BrewDog, Newcastle on 27 July 2013. Purchased by my cousin some months before, as I hadn’t tried it. Unfortunately it was a little past its best and had lost most of the hop notes. Poured a hazy orange with a thin, off white head. Aroma of muted hops, some spice and orange rind. Strong butterscotch flavours with a little of the lingering hop resin bitterness.

mikkos (282) - FINLAND - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle, best before 25-07-2013. Dark ruby with a white medium head. Aroma is like a Dipa, sweet caramel malts with a fruity hoppy feel. Clearly the hops have faded away now and the caramel malts is the thing now. Some floral hops and glueish smell there too. Mouthfeel is a bit oily, carbonation medium. Bitterness is moderate and rather long. It's still pretty ok, just lacking some punch and the fresh hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
