COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg, occasional
previously available cask conditioned
"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.

DSG (8423) - Tel Aviv, - FEB 2, 2011
Bottle. Clear golden with a medium white head. Hoppy aroma of tropical fruits (mango, passion fruit, lychee), some citrus and a bit of malt. Nice hops flavor that dries out quickly towards a lingering bitter finish with grass and grapefruit notes. Medium-bodied. Nice stuff.

lusikka (7102) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 2, 2011
330 ml bottle. Batch #371.
Pours a clear yellow colour with a large, very lacy, white head with a very good retention. Aroma of pleasant passion fruit and some hops. Flavour of passion fruit, floral hops, caramel malts and also some grass. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel. Pleasant hoppy finish with some crispiness too. Very good for such a low ABV brew.

Huib (55) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2011
Smell of fresh, fruity hops. Floral, hoppy aroma. Taste starts bitter but gets smoother. Very refreshing. Gonna buy more when the season gets better. Liked the 5AM saint better though in this genre.

Orange hazy, creamy white head. Smells of honey, tea, pine and some malts. Taste is medium sweet, quite woody. some honey as well. All in all better than the aroma. Medium to heavy bitter finish, pine and resins, some green tea. A quite drinkabe one, a bit too sweet maybe, the hops are really nice and the pine is very nice. A re-rate was really necessary here...

Bottle. Light Hazy golden with a thick white head. Smells of herbs and flowers. A nice balance between sweetness and bitter and the bitterness is pretty nice and long lasting. In Norway this is on of the better beers you can get in a normal supermarket

tiong (4723) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2011
330ml bottle from K-Supermarket Kamppi, Helsinki

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.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2011
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..
