Fin (10473) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2009
Bottle from Real Ale Ltd, cheers Duff, consumed 04-05-09 Pours light gold with a white head, excellent clarity and very fine looking beer. Some citrus intertwined with vanilla on the nose and a bit of cereal, also the lager malts show very well and there is a decent hoppy note throughout. Taste is crisp, really quite dry, nice bitterness. There is some grain but there is also a decent citrus burst and the maltiness is very decent, good hoppiness linger throughout, its a very nice lager.

Bottle@Øl&Mat 09, Oslo. A big, coarse-laced white head upon a brilliant, pale gold colored body. Superfresh citrussy and floral hop nose. Dryish, refined malt flavor, perfectly balanced by some prominent, citrus fruity, floral, and light resinous hops. Crisp and vivid in the mouth. Suitable light body. Bold hoppy finish. Oh my, a good one... The perfect session beer! jgb9348 (6194) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Nice crisp golden coloured body with an orange tint and a very thin white head - almost non-existant. Aroma of fresh malt, lemons, cleanser, a touch of sweetness and plenty of strong hops! Medium-bodied; Sharp malty flavour with a great amount of citrus fruits, alcohol and the perfect amount of hops noticeable. Aftertaste lasts quite a while - the hops and malt blend perfectly and show very well. Overall, a very nice beer - definitely worth trying if you can find it! I liked this one just on its own! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from the UtoBeer Market Stall at the Borough Market in Borough (London), England on 29-November-2008, sampled on Christmas Day (25-December-2008) at home in Washington. johndoughty (5400) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2010
Bottle.Golden with a creamy head. Slightly bitter with some maltiness.Medium mouth feel.An above average lager but not in the same class as some of their more exotic products. Worth trying though. suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Pours a dark golden amber. Not as bright as any other lager out there. Little to no head, with carbonation bubbling up the entire drink.
A slight hint of the presence of hops in the nose. Hint of malt and sweetness.
A little malty, with a sweet dryness in the finish (not much though). A little too sweet. And almost bland.
Decent mouthfeel, it isn’t overly thin. There is a bit of a dry feeling left I’m guessing from the hops used.
Decent enough to drink during a cookout or a big gathering. I could probably share this with my friends who are used to the big 2.

Bottle at ChrisO’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Clearish gold pour with a fine, white head. Toasty, aged malts in the aroma. Medium sweet flavor, some light honey, faint bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Slightly sticky finish, nice roasted sugars. Past its prime but not bad. NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2008
Pale golden colored brew. Hoppy aroma. Hopppy and fruity flavored. Nice brew. Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Bottle (batch #140) at The Rake, "What company Christmas party?" session, 4th Dec 08. Clear gold, light carbonation. Nose has hints of vanilla, flowers and a bit of the usual lager aromas. Soft fruity and citrus taste. Full, somewhat heavy mouthfeel. The strength is apparent. It certainly achieves its aim of being a very long way from a macrobrewery lager. larsga (7508) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2009
Medium offwhite head. Amber body. Fruity floral resiny aroma with grassy straw notes. Very harmonic and clean. Dry-sweet resiny floral grassy taste with strawy fruity honey notes. Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel. Dry strawy grassy aftertaste. Very nice. Mild and easy to drink. Girlfriend-approved, too. (0.2l taster at Øl & Mat ’09, Oslo.) mkel07 (5845) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2009
330ml bottle. Lively to look at with a nice golden amber colour and a steady short lasting white head. Aromas similar to an american pale ale with sweet notes shining through. Strong hop taste and a very strong aftertaste that sits in the mouth and doesn’t want to leave. Best of the 3 Brewdog beers that I have tried so far.
