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.

330 ml bottle. Slighthly hazy golden yellow colour, thin white head. Aroma of malt and sweet tropical fruits. The flavour is malty, fruity, with a nicely aromatic hoppy finish. Very tasty and enjoyable for such a low ABV.

0,3l Flasche. Angenehmes Ale; fruchtige Komponenten kombiniert mit schöner Malzigkeit.

MarkoNm (755) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours a fairly clear golden color, topped with medium white head. Malty aroma with some very mild fruity and grassy notes. Malty and sweet at first, followed by a bittery and slightly herbal finish. Mild and easily drinkable.

GuideDogSaint (481) - Xiamen, CHINA - NOV 8, 2014
330ml bottle from Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours hazy golden with a thin white head. Fruity aroma with an unpleasant overtone. Bitter finish. Dear me, what has happened to this beer? Used to be one of my favourites in cask and even the bottles were good. Major disappointment.

Hopmaestro (194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2014
Nothing really wrong with this one, but nothing really great either. Pretty boring aroma with laidback fruityness and malts. The taste lingers on the lower side of hops and theres a pretty thin malty backbone. Mid-bitter ending.

graham_murphy (330) - - OCT 27, 2014
Simple enough. Plenty of citrus and grassy notes from the hops. Mild carbonation. Neither sweet nor overly bitter. Not sure I’d call it a pale ale - somewhere between a lager and a saison for me.

danlo (1322) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2014
330ml bottle from Brewdog online store. Clear pale yellow straw colour, white foam head leaving lacing and hoppy fruity aroma. Malty taste with citrus zest, hoppy notes, dry bitterness, Light bodied, watery mouth feel, soft carbonation, and a sweetish strawy lingering bitter finish. Quite drinkable

A light hoppy aroma and a rather boring taste with medium bitter finish. Average carbonation. Hazy golden with a nice head, good lacing. A good bottle to offer to friends as it won’t offer many surprises.

Alengrin (2436) - BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2014
One of Brewdog’s more ’ordinary’ beers, with thick white head and golden blonde colour with greenish hue. Pale malty aroma, buttermilk (diacetyl), grassy hops, apple. Light, malt sweetish aroma, a bit lager-like, apple, lots of diacetyl resulting in a smooth and creamy mouthfeel, grassy hop bitterishness in the finish. What a difference compared with their anarchistic experiments - but very well made.

Bosbouw (1379) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2014
Heldere citroengele kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt niet zoveel, beetje hop, beetje pilsachtig. Smaakt bitterzoet, citrus, hop. Verfrissend.
