Nicely hopped, but a bit light body. Still a pretty good beer for such a low ABV. Great sauna beer.

Cask at The Bow Bar, Edinburgh. Pours a clear amber with a good white head, very smooth body with hoppy herbs and a longish aftertaste. Berries on the nose. Possibly passion fruit. Not bad. Very smooth.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy, warm golden beer with a white, creamy head. Inviting, fruity and quite hoppy scent with notes of citrus, grass and light caramel. There is aa slight malt sweetness in the mouth and a nice dry bitterness at the back of the tongue that’s very refreshning, with hints of resin, citrus and abricots. With a low ABV and a nice price (around 2 euros) this is a beer that I should always have in my fridge..

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Five on five faultless in appearance. Big pillowy white head rises up and out the glass. Holds so well atop a sunny gold body that is awash with fine streaming bubbles. Grassy, fruity nose with notes of vine-clippings, rocket leaves, passionfruit, peach and pine needles, absurdly clean. Bright hops on the palate, a lot of passionfruit, sharp raspiness attacks the sides of the tongue with a big bitter peak on the swallow. Nice light body, very soft, very creamy mouthfeel, long, long bitterness in the throat as it heads south. Not much malt backbone, mildly dusty, earthy mid-palate, slightly floral, perfumy linger also. A little pine, not too much like the aggressively piney Hardcore IPA which didn’t work for me. I like it, subtle fruit sweetness balanced by a dry, dusty edge and heaving bitter, raw hop flavours, very nice. Brewdog’s back in my good books with this one!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. The blonde tried to escape from the bottle so I had to rush to the glass. Pale blonde. Thin white lasting head. Soft grassy hop scent. Nice sessionable beer with lots of hops and solid malt. A good beer and as a bonus only 4.1%. Citrus, passion fruit (if they say so) and malt. Tastes like more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy orange with a thick white head. Bold hop aroma with subtle yeast notes. It smells like an over hoped Belgian blonde. Nothing trashy about how this beer tastes. Very hopy with an excellent citrus bitterness that permeates the brew. Very drinkable. It tastes amazing. A Trashy blonde is exactly what I am looking for.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden yellow, medium-thick and highly presistent white head, very good lacing. Nose is mice funky hops, a combination of spiciness, and greenness, with a distinct peppercorn note that I really like. Underneath the hops is a clean, unassuming, apple-scented grain bill that works well, clean and inoffensive. Flavors were more bitter than anticipated, though that’s not a bad thing, some winter fruits, lots of funky bitterness, cedar, and spice. Very round and easy to drink, and at 4.1%, I think I’ll have another...
