3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Thick creamy medium white head, lacing. Amber body.
Aroma: Aroma is frightenly similar to macro lagers, but some fruity hoppiness saves the day.
Flavour: Much better than the aroma lets on, fruity, blackcurrant, passion fruit and resinous and a pronounced bitterness, very pleasant!
Mouthfeel: For a beer with as low an ABV as this it still has enough body to balance the bitterness, it is crisp and lively yet smooth.
Total: Well down Brewdog, will be several of this tasty beer this summer!

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the looks, yellow with a white head, you could easily mistake this one for a dull lager. It’s not. The aroma is full of elegant and pleasant passionfruity hop aromas. There are also some more light fruitiness in it. Decent bitterness that is in good balance with the rest of the beer. The carbonation is soft and the beer is overall elegant.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fun mild. Obtained from the brewery itself. Pours blond with nice foamy white head. The aroma, I agree, was buttery. The taste was a good hoppiness, a bit below average mouthfeel. But very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge, very fine, just off-white head over chromate-golden, clear beer. Milky nose at first, with some faintly-familiar unknown herb. Then, nice hops with some C-notions impose, making it nearly IPA-like. Hops come out in the taste immediately, but peter out in a spicy, dry way. Revived with every sip, however. Light MF, creamy texture mainly thanks to the tenacious head. It lacks maybe a bit of alcohol and/or cakey malt to beef it up. Still, rather appreciated it.
