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.

fiulijn (14770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2011 2011-02-02, bottle, batch 305, bb 08-10-11, ~4 months old, 7-4-7-4-15=37
Hazy deep blond color; creamy head. The aroma is very nice even before reaching the glass: bread, manure, cereals. Lean and dry mouthfeel; dry malt flavor, with tones of cereals and bread, but also lightly crispy; very strong hopping, with some aromatic qualities. Long and dominant final. Very good.

2009-06-20, draught at Nya Tröls, Malmö, 6-4-8-4-14=36
Blond color; generous head, yoghurt-like. The aroma is light, some malt, sweaty hop. Good malt flavor and toffee, very dry, with good hopping and high bitterness (maybe too harsh at the end). Extremely enjoyable as thirstquencher; it could be better only if the hop were a bit fruity.
