COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled;
Oblivious to accountant’s interfering and conventional corporate wisdom we do not cut corners like other Lager producers and use malt substitutes like corn and rice to keep our costs down. Our Lager has 100% malt base providing an fresh, sharp initial sweetness and a body and flavour, which endures where others prematurely disappear into a watery bland grave. A combination of the finest German and New Zealand hops add subtle tropical fruit notes and add complexity and depth to this most statuesque of Lagers.

LazyPyro (1217) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2017
330ml bottle rebrewed for AGM. Crystal clear light amber gold colour with a small white head. Aroma: pale malt, faint citrus, caramel. Taste: sweet malt, caramel, subtle fruity/grassy hops, light bitter finish. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation, good mouthfeel for a lager though. Quite similar to BrewDog’s more recent lagers I think, though ironically this is less hoppy.

mR_fr0g (12132) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2017
Keg at Brewdog Soho. A clear golden orange coloured pour with a sticky white head. Aroma is semi sweet cereal leafy hop, orange rind. Flavour is composed of sweet Base malts, simple slightly nutty malts, orange rind. Maybe a hint of sulphur. Palate is a bit sweet moderate carbonation. Not such a crisp finish. Ok.

Heidbummer (656) - SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2017
Rebrewed fir AGM weekend. Pours crystal clear rose gold, biscuity aroma. Great first mouthful; all bitterness, dryness and some fruit. It fades a bit after that but it’s good stuff. Don’t remember it being this good first time around.

BlackHaddock (7356) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012
Brown 330ml bottle, best before 10-10-2009, drank on the last day of May 2009. Poured into a Corsendonk stemmed tulip shaped glass. Very slight haze to the beer, otherwise it was an old gold, mid-range lager colour. A white collar and wispy covering sat on top with some lacing as the beer was consummed. Good hop aroma, some mixed fruit in there too (apples and pears?). My nose picked up some yeast hints as well. Hops dominate the taste, is this really a lager? Not as I know it anyway. Rarely has a lager beer tested my tastebuds so. Well hopped beers often become very dry in the aftertaste, this became drier, but not overly so. Not cheek suckingly dry anyway, nor does it taste metallic or like cardboard, a trait I’ve discovered in some lagers as I circumnavigate the globe looking for the perfect pint. Very drinkable, but too hoppy foe me to have as a session drink.

Scopey (14778) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2011
Multiple bottles in the past from Brewdog online. It pours pale yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is sweet malt, sweet citrus and grass. The taste is grass, sweet malt, butter, some floral and distant citrus, with a big bitter finish. Medium body and moderate-high, fizzy carbonation. Not my sort of thing.

3.7
Odland (137) - NORWAY - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours golden with good white head. A crisp and hoppy flavour with some citric and tropical tastes. A bitter and clear flavor and finish.

JK54B (1602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2010
Bottled 0.33L at Ahven. Hoppy flowery nose. Pale head. Coppery colour. Syropy roasty and malty slightly fruity taste. Average hoppiness.

3.2
Muggus69 (2494) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2010
330ml bottle, bit out of date 24/07/09, dang. Pours a clean golden body with short-lived white head. Pleasant aroma of honeyed malts, dried apricot, and faint ripe melon and citrus hops. Quite full bodied, carbonation is subdued for a lager, clean texture. Grainy malt on the body, honey and light biscuity sweetness. Bit of lemony and stonefruit fruit hop flavour, slight grassiness on a moderately bitter finish with a lingering husky dryness. Pretty good lager, despite the age. Nicely flavoured and goes down smoothly.
