3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Mostly caramell in the pretty mild aroma. Some faint citrus hops are there as well. Nice clean and bitter taste. The finish is nicely bitter as well and longlasting. The bitterness almost becomes spicy after a while in the finish. Light in body and somewhere between average and lively in carbonation which is a bit to low for a premium lager but suits me fine. A really nice lager with great bitterness

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle). Very obvious elements of grassy hops in both taste and aroma. The taste, however, is sprawling, unbalanced and uninteresting.

Yellow golden with light yellow foam. Malt, flower and meat in the aroma. Malt, sweet but growing bitterness in the aftertaste. A nice one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gyllengul öl med gräddigt vitt skum. Doften är blommig och örtig med inslag av citron och viss maltighet. Citrus mer framträdande i smaken. Lätt torr munkänsla. En mycket välhumlad lager men ändå balanserad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml Bottle from Brewdog Online Shop (£2.50):
Sweet grassy hops & citrus with a biscuit like aroma & lager malts. Light hops & an almost IPA like aroma with a combination of grapefruit and pine with some bitterness & lemon. It’s light & fresh.
Bright, medium amber with a thin, foamy white lacing that covers the surface with some sticking to the sides.
Fresh with some citrus lemons, some grassy hops & pine follow with a pleasant bitterness accompanying them. The malts from the nose are here as well but there are hidden slightly more by the hops. I could detect a little sweetness & some background fruits too.
Lively & quite with solid carbonation & more bitterness & hops than I anticipated, this one has hints of an American IPA in it & feature a big citrus tang on the tongue. The taste is clean, crisp & goes down well with a decent balance as well.
Quite an interesting offering that fell somewhere between the premium lager it is marketed at & a hopped-up American IPA with more bitterness & hops than I was expecting from a pale lager. It was very refreshing & lively with strong carbonation & a nice balance.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pale golden clear. Somewhat grainy pale malts on nose, lager yeasty character. After the grainy malty nose, this is surprisingly soft and smooth bodied. Very pale malty, dry, light bitter. But not that much hoppy flavours. Flavourful, crafty stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden with one finger white, fluffy foam with lacings. Aroma on one hand floral hoppy, citrus, on the other more pilsner like with rustic, light bitter, bread and malt. Taste is bitter initially, with floral hops and a clear citrus tone, develops a more elegant bitterness (zest and grape) on a fairly malt body despite the low ABV before finishing pilsner-like with a rough bitter-sweety taste, grass and dust. Light to medium body, medium to high carbo, kind of dry texture. Well composed.
