JohnRMurdoch (4190) - 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.

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.

harrisoni (16704) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2012
On tap at BrewDog Camden. very deep clear amber with lasting cream head. Some fruity malt. Rather a drinkable amber ale with enough hop on finish to remain interesting. Yes very drinkable
