"You know you shouldn’t."
Ingredients: Maris Otter, Caramalt and Munich Malt; Motoeka (Belgian Saaz) and Amarillo hops.
A titillating, neurotic, peroxide, punk of a pale ale. Combining attitude, style substance and a little bit of low self esteem for good measure; what would your mother say?
The seductive lure of the sassy passion fruit hop proves too much to resist. All that is even before we get onto the fact that there are no additives preservatives, pasteurization or strings attached. All wrapped up with the customary Brewdog bite and imaginative twist.

A dry lager-esque, hoppy beer of cloudy blonde colour. Reasonable but not a BrewDog best. Rated by BrewTom

On tap at Tadg’s, I wouldn’t really call this a golden or blonde ale, it is more of an APA. A clear gold with a white head & solid body. It has a good balance of hoppy flavor with enough malts to offset any bitterness. It is easy drinking and the kind of beer you’d go to on a daily basis, easier on the palate than the punk ipa.

Jamedra (384) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 14, 2013
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je příjemné chmelové. Pěna je jasně bílá, jemná, vysoká a průměrně držící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť má příjemný sladový střed s nádechem citrusů, lehký sladový okraj a příjemně jemný, hořký finiš který průměrně drží. Vcelku se jedná o velmi chutné pivo s dobrou pitelností.

ElManana (135) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - OCT 15, 2013
Pours a nice, clear golden with a small, frothy, white, film head. Pleasant soft aroma, with malts and fine pine hops. Lively mouthfeel and a bit thin. Flavour is quite hoppy, weak malts balance. Good dryness, though.

Butelka 0.33L. Jasnobursztynowe, opalizujace z bujna jasnokrenowa paina, ktora szybko się dziurawi, jednak pozostały kozuszek znaczy szklo. W aromacie lekko karmelowe, slowode, miodowe, lipowe, mocno owocowe - estrowe, delikatne nuty chmielowe i chlebowe. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie z wyczuwalnym miodem lipowym na finishu skontrowanym przyjemna lekko ziemista delikatna goryczka chmielowa. Cialo i wysycenie na poziomie sredniem. Piwo dosc slodkie jednak bardzo pijalne i orzezwiajace. Zbalansowane.

This is a blone ale from Brewdog, so you should expect lots of hops and fruitiness and some resemblance of an American IPA. And well, that’s exactly what this is. Very nice.
