maeib (8621) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
Keg BrewDog Camden London. A mahogany coloured beer with a thick and tight whitish head. Sweet and hoppy aroma with a hint of woody spice. Same in the mouth. Chewy, hoppy and fruity. Quite complex and becomes over complicated.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 21, 2012
Light orange, small white head. Raisins, white bread, herbal, interesting. Mild bitterness, medium carbonation. In between of an IPA and flavourful Belgian white, or something. Bit hun thin, though. More of these Japanse beers please. Thanks to the great guys at the Brewdog Camden bar. (Sample glass)

JohnRMurdoch (3214) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 2, 2012
Bottle from BrewDog Glasgow. Unexpected dark brown collour with a yellowish foamy head. Hoppy chocolate caramel aroma. Hop & chocolate flavour. Quite smooth. Not a typical amber ale.

flying_pig (913) - SCOTLAND - MAR 21, 2012
1/2 Pint on tap at Brewdog Glasgow (£2.95):
Pine, roasted malts smell that is blended with a good caramel arona. Very sweet with a bit of brown sugar as well. The end is more pine and hops with some bitterness.
Dark amber colour, thin and bubbly white/brown head and slightly cloudy.
Caramel and roasted malts to start things off with, followed quickly by some piney hops and bitterness and a lot of sugary sweetness. The taste is rounded off by yet more malts.
Light and smooth with a good bitter hop feel to the drink and a nice, sweet finish and a touch of dryness right at the end.

Quite a nice, light and refreshing beer that was gone almost as quickly as I ordered it. The roasted malts and sweetness worked well and this one was a pleasure to drink.

Aroma: Bitter, bready aroma. Hints of cherry.

Appearance: Chestnut brown body. Small white head. Good lacing.

Taste: Roasted malts and berry fruits. Subtle coffee taste. Not overly complex, but nice balanced and very moreish.

Palate: Medium body. Light carbonation. Bitter finish.

Overall: Roasted malt flavours dominate the bitter hops. Well balanced taste.
