COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after an antagonist movie character with a violent temper and a propensity for drooling, furthermore brewed amongst mad-ish Scottish dogs. Nevertheless is this beer far from mad itself. You’ll find it a very pleasant, peaceful and a loyal Pale Ale – woof.

Hazy orange pour with a white head. Nose is floral and piney with some sweet citrus notes. Sweet bread and toffee malt notes, a bit of grass, and mild peach. Flavor is on the sweet side, but more in the way of the sugar and fruit kind of sweetness. Toffee and caramel malt, peach, and sweet oranges. Floral hops, mild pine bitterness, and some hints of grass.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2012
Shared bottle @Papsoe’s. Deep gold colored body. Lacing blond top. Light grainy and ashy(!) malt aroma. Loads of earthy and rather unfresh grassy hops. Taste substatially bitter. Light papery and quite harsh bitterness. Grainy malt body, light to medium full. Oily texture. Bitter finish. Quite one-dimesonal and simple. [14.07.12]

Leighton (18034) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2012
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration, Day Two. Pours clear, orange-gold with a fine, white head. Bit of orange citrus on the nose. Light sweet flavor, some dry orange, some rind, some dry and leafy bitterness, fain dry caramel. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately dry finish with some rindy citrus, toasty caramel. Pretty basic beer but it makes for a nice drinker.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2012
11.2oz bottle, $5. Mildly hazy orange-red color. Thin khaki / off-white head. Leaves some loose lace. Nose of caramel malts, some hop. As much as I don’t care for the price, this is a pretty solid pale ale, although not outstanding. It’s got a nice unique fruity hop profile: some citrus, little dankness, maybe even a bit of pine in here. Moderate bitter taste, little sweetness. Medium / lighter body, smooth but at the same time crisp carbonation. Definitely an above-average pale ale, a nice sessioner. Unfortunately, the price is way above average.
