COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled;
Oblivious to accountants 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.

Miksu (5053) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2008
0.33 l bottle. Slightly hazy pale golden color with small head. Weird aroma with lemon, pineapple, tar fruitiness and butter. There is a tropical fruit nectar flavor with honey, medium bitterness and butter. Hints of petrol in the finish. Light bodied with soft carbonation. I like the idea of tropical fruits in a lager but the butter aroma and flavor really puts this off and there should be more bitterness as well as more german hops for a balance.

berkshirejohn (6410) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2008
[330ml bottle.] Golden straw with a quickly fading white head - moderate carbonation - intense floral hop aroma - sharp hoppy flavour to start with, developing a thick and malty body with tropical fruits - then a sharply bitter finish like a good bitter orange marmalade. Better than the average lager!

Dedoulequeen07 (135) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2008
Bottle at Blackfriars. A plae golden beer with a small white head. Tastes of citrusey floural hop and pale malt grain. Sweet malty character with a good grassy finish. Have to say for a lager this is got a good balance of flavour.

ritchie666 (23) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2008
Cask @ Bodega Newcastle 21/8/8/ a pale gold beer with a tight white head, nose is dried vine fruit and jam. Nice body with good carbonation with that raisiny fruit in the taste with lovely long balancing hop finish

Fin (10382) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle from Westholme Londis Stores, Goring -on-Thames, Oxon and then consumed at Cropredy Festival 2008 Pours light gold with white head. Hoppy and dry lager, and whilst this is absolutely fine it lacks the character and interest that the other Brewdog beers have.

chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2008
bottle- pours clear pale gold with large massive white head, nose is sort of skunky cat pee bit spicy, hoppy, pine, taste is really strong vanilla flavour and a touch of sweetness with a good doss of resinous pine hop and citrus rind,. really worth the try.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2008
(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Slightly hazy pale golden with a small white head. Sweetish malty nose. Medium body with rather sweet malts and a hoppy finish. Carbonation is rather low. A disappointing BrewDog. 250308

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 18, 2008
Bottle, pours a light gold with plenty of carbonation with a thin head. Plenty of citrus in the juicy malt aroma. A soapy palate, overriding the citrus flavours from the hops. The finish is tangy and dry, but also a bit grainy. Not for me this. Wondering if it hasn’t travelled so well.
