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.

blipp (6957) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Cask. Pours orange with a white head. Floral hoppy aroma with some crackery malts. The flavor has a nice balance of floral and citric hops with pale malts and a touch of sweetness. Nice.

ComradeK (1070) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2010
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy light amber, with a medium, yet dissipating head. The aroma is a pleasing mix of grassy and floral hops. There is a very strong initial hops hit, which moderates into a slightly sweet floral flavour. It finishes with a smooth caramel malt flavour, which neatly balances out the predominant hops. This is a lovely bitter. It doesn’t look like much, but it has just the right balance to be a really delightful drink.

Spab (2799) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2010
330 ml bottle from Premier Wine & Spirits (Halifax). Pours a slightly cloudy yellow/orange with smallish white head. Dusty citric/floral aroma with light, sweet maltiness. Strong taste balanced between citrus and floral hops with more subtle pale malts. Lasting dry bitterness in finish. Pleasant.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Blonde with a white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy, some background maltiness. Taste has a typical bitterness, lightly maltiness follows, drinkable but nothing to write about on a beer site.

tmrmwel (1284) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2010
Bottle, batch 89. Pours an unclear golden yellow, with a medium head that quickly disintegrates. Sweet aroma of pine. Tastes very good, with a hoppy bitterness that attacks straight away, before leaving place for a lightly roasted, caramelly malt, and a sweet hint of sap. Light body, with a quite lively carbonation. Finishes of with a good, dry bitterness that sticks long into the aftertaste. A fabulous bitter!

abstractbeer (239) - NORWAY - JUL 24, 2010
Bought at a local supermarket. Pours a golden orange. Quite bitter aftertaste. Nice fresh, citrusy aroma, but overall way too bitter for my taste and therefore slightly disappointing. By no means undrinkable, just not quite my taste. I’ll try it again later with some food, maybe that’ll be good!

Furseth (2022) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2010
Bottle: Clear yellow colour, big white head. Aroma of dust and lots of sweet maltynes, and a dry hopy ending. Flavor had a smouth mouth feeling of malts, grassy,bread and a nice dry medium hopy finish. Thin body.
