Pint on-tap from Brewdog Glasgow (£3.95):
Fruity with a pale ale like aroma. Sweet one with some caramel malts following this as well as some grassy hops but they main aroma seems to be a sweet honey one that lingers throughout and is really quite nice.
Clear amber with a thin, bubbly head that holds well.
Sweet with plenty of honey from the aroma as well as some lighter hops and a nice caramel taste with some background fruits and a nice, light citrus flavours.
Medium bodied with a creamy feel and a smooth body that has a nice balance to it and goes down pretty well.

Nice, another good Brewdog beer that seemed more pale ale than pilsener, particularly considering the fruity flavours and honey throughout.

Hazy pale amber with grassy malt nose. Dry custard cream malt, balancing herbal bitterness, nice but dull. Better than 77 tho!

Medium bodied with prickly carbonation, a little on the thin side but not too much, bitter notes in the finish. Decent enough hoppy pils.
