Très bonne bière! Petit goût délicat mielleux! Merci brew dog! 77lager! Je la deguste entre ami Alexus (242) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2012
0,33 can bought from the local store. Compared to the other pilsner we have on the Norwegian market, this is the winner. It’s just how a good lager should be. Golden in color with a white head, which does not last very long...
Smooth tasting with fresh hops. Great lager from Brew dog! Jamedra (754) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 3, 2014
Plechovka 330 ml. Aroma je výrazné, květinové s nádechem zrajícího sýra na sladovém pdokladu. Pěna je bílá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá, lehce do oranžova a jemně kalná. Chuť má výraznější ovocné tóny na příjemném sladovém podkladu, finiš je výrazné hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí plně, má střední říz a je dobře pitelné. Tento ležák mě velmi mile překvapil, nečekal jsem příliš i když je to pivo od Brewdoga, ale naprosto splňuje všechny mě požadavky pro chutný světlý ležák. scotty (1208) - SCOTLAND - SEP 1, 2011
Good looking lager, deepish golden with a long lasting white head. Lovely malty palate with plenty of clean hop flavours, well balanced. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at the Smithfield Hotel. Perfectly clean dark gold with a superb white head and lace. Fantastic condition too. Superb fruity hop aroma. I swear there’s some Sauvin in there. The really good hop character follows on well into the flavour. Juicy and bitter with a good bite in the finish. Straight forward but adorable and hugely drinkable. Excellent stuff.

330ml bottle from Tesco. Copper coloured with white head that resolves to a thin layer. Lovely aroma - a mix of citrus and floral hops, a little butter and some peppery/spice in the background. The floral and citrus aromas carry over to the flavours with juicy maltiness and a big hoppy kick. Long bitter finish. A light, balanced palate makes it an excellent partner to spicy foods.

Not much pffft once the cap came off. Poured into a Pilsner flute, my initial thoughts are ’did it fail to condition in the bottle?’ or ’did it pass its youth disgracefully?’. It appears so viscous, oily, swirl the glass and a film is left clinging to the rim. The body a very sunny orange amber with a lot of fine proteins trapped in suspension, the minute carbonation is so slow to rise its as if they just don’t want to leave the beer. Head a mere ring of tight snow-white bubbles that by magic alone manage a little legs. Initial, subtle malt and barnyard hay nose with a yeasty edge, a little sulphury. This wanes to reveal notes of vine-clippings, fresh hop leaves and rose petals, a little cara-malt and juicy blood oranges. Sweet, juicy start in the mouth, short-lived as it shifts into high gear. Orange, guava and green papaya fruit add subtleties to the ripe, raw and meaty hops that fill the mouth with a bitter, camphorous and floral flavour that’s penetrating. Big peak and drop-off on the swallow, good aggressive bitterness that is in harmony with the subtle fruit esters and lingering notes of pine and vine-clippings. Toasted sweet malty notes build on the palate as it warms and transgresses the beer even further. The body is not too hefty and the carbonation a mere spritz to give it bounce and bring all that flavour out. This would make an evil session beer. I loved this one. An ingeniously well made Pilsener of the new breeds along the lines of Emerson’s Pilsner of New Zealand. Bloody good stuff!!!

AROMA - very nice, hoppy in a tropical/passion fruit way.
COLOUR - Golden brown.
HEAD - Light and lasting.
ATTACK - Passion fruit, malt.
MID PALATE - malty
FINISH - Smokey woody malt.
OVERALL - Very malty refreshing alternative to your average lager with that well know distinctive Brewdog flavour through heavy dry hopping of New Zealand hops. Nice lager but not one of Brewdog’s best creations.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2013 bottle @ eataly bologna. pours with a good head. good taste and well balanced bitterness. GoufCustom (2005) - HONG KONG - FEB 19, 2013
Batch No. 286 bought at Marketplace by Jason’s in Langham Place, Mong Kok.
Cloudy hazy pale golden yellow colour with dusty sediments; Razor thin head and white foam which fades in less than 20 seconds; Minimal lacing with active carbonation; Aroma of full malt, lemon, orange peel, grapefruit, and grass, reminiscent of Belgian white / witbier; Light and pleasant sweet taste of orange peel, malt, lemon and grass; Medium body, slick palate. Taste profile is dominated by Hoegaarden-like orange / citrus taste which is much more intense here, with a bubbly winery feeling throughout; Hop bitterness is subtle, lingering and right on target, rounding up with hoppiness and mild saltiness as finish. Very nice! Dry after taste, very crisp and easy to mouth.
Comments: my first BrewDog and what a genuine surprise! Its look and taste suggests it has strong elements of Belgian white - close to Hitachino Nest White Ale - and they achieved this without adding wheat and other adjuncts is truly amazing! In addition, it also bears some strong German Keller tendencies as in Ganter Urtrunk. To label it as a Lager is really an understatement. It has bits of everything and they add up very nicely for my enjoyment. You have to taste it to believe it. Highly recommended of course!
I am glad I choose this for my 100th beer review and what a bang I must say! Here’s to the 200th!
