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.

Berries, cherries and grapefruit are strong in the pleasantly sweet aroma. Deep copper blond body is topped by a generous foam of off white, fine bubbled head that coats the glass. Strong bitterness offsets the sweet cereal malts and lingers in the aftertaste. Medium light body with fair carbonation.sampled on tap at Dwaze Zaken in Amsterdam in September 2012.

This citrus taste gave the impression of cider more than beer. Citrus and bitterness was not ny combination ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

konungen (111) - - FEB 6, 2015
Guldig ljus klar öl med vitt skum. Tycker den doftar väldigt svagt, anar malt och ev lite frukt i den. Lättdrucken och ganska fräsch öl men lite tråkig. Antar att det ändå är en bra mellanöl. Flaska från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the archives. Bottle during summer. A very good refreshing blond ale. All good for the type. Balanced and smooth.

Kita (1277) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear pale golden color with medium creamy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus, passion fruit and caramel. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel and biscuit malt, follows refreshing fruity with light herbal bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Pretty boring for BewDog, but still palatable and sessionable...

VDuquerroux (490) - Airvault, FRANCE - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A dark pink mahogany beer with orange hues at the bottom of my glass ; big white lasting head ; some yeast sediments ; good lacing. Fruity < acid aroma (red berries, elderberry?, blackcurrant), herbs. Medium sweet, medium lasting "spoiling" acid, light bitter. Light sweet, thin silky texture, high carbonation, sweet-acid finish. Overall, not my thing : deceiving, definetely fruity but light, acid. I will have to taste this one again.
