Bright clear red - amber beer, fluffy off white head. Light hoppy nose. Light palate, inevitably a bit thin. Semi dry. Nice fresh hops - mild pine and marmalade orange. Trace of black tea. Mild minerals. Mild hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Decent low abv beer but it is thin.

foxo82 (884) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2012 On tap at BrewDog Nottingham. Dark red with a decent head. Pleasant aroma of grapefruit, syrup and hops. Aroma gives way to a taste that is far more bitter than the ABV would have you believe. Long bitter finish. However, I found it hard to drink - the quality of the aroma didnt quite translate into the flavour department, which was a bit washed out. Still, the best lower alcohol beer Ive ever had.
