2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Brewdog. Pours clear golden with a big, fast diminishing white head. Aroma of grassy and herbal hops. Taste is moderate sweet, with a decent dry bitter end, herbal and grassy hops. Fizzy mouthfeel. Not the best from Brewdog, to put it mild.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Kris Wines. The pour’s deep gold with a large, creamy white head. Attractive. The nose is soft biscuit, cereal, some caramel and general sweetness. The taste is toasted bread, some pear and shortbread. Lightly hoppy crisp finish. Spare, light body. A bit syrupy. This isn’t completely dialled-in, but it’s a pretty decent effort. Overall, an OK pils.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at BrewDog Shoreditch. It pours clear golden amber with a thin white head. Earthy and grassy notes in the nose. Some hops as well. Similar flavours in the taste with a fairly dry finish. Medium/thin in body with good carbonation. Nothing unforgettable.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 I dont like this beer. The poorest i have had from Brewdog and surprised they even felt that this would be popular as a potential permanent beer. Its Irn Bru in colour with a head thinner than a beer mat. Its all hop aroma, ans some initial hop taste. This then passes and leaves not much else behind. Pointless.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden clear body and off white head. Well hopped, tropical fruits and a present light malt base. Taste is lightly disappointing after this start, white bread malts. Clean start, light bitter, bit of cardboard taste unfortunately. Almost like they used poorer quality ingredients than usual (which I’m sure they didn’t). Good aroma, okay taste. Holds up fairly well. (33cl bottle from Chris)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33cl, kindly donated by Christian (Bièrerie). A clear yellow beer with low head. Nose is on grassy hops and fresh hops. Aroma is just slightly malty and sweet with a nice fresh hops bouquet on grass, herb, earth and light lemon, very nice, typical continental hops, good and refreshing. Like this even if less impressive than Dead Poney.
