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.

Fin (10473) - 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.

2.5
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

2.6
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.

3.6
Tranquillity (2251) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2008
Bottled. Clear yellow with a tiny white head. Aroma very strong of butter. Taste butter as well, with a bitter, oily finish.

3.6
Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 12, 2008
330ml bottle, at home with renffisch, 17th June 2008. Good vanilla & grassy hop nose but a very light straw colour, which looks rather watery. Well balanced in the mouth though - creamy sweetness and dry floral hops. Lovely soft, long finish. I wish it came in a bigger bottle!

3.7
renffisch (891) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2008
bottle from realale limited. Hop galore, very grassy nose with lots of leather and cardboard. lightest yellow, big bubbly white rim. Very very dry for a lager, but in a very good way. Sturdy backbone with a grassy finish. lovely beer.

3.5
Rune (12587) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2008
330ml bottle bought at Utobeer, Borough Market. Rich rocky, white head with long duration and nice lacing on the glass. Late straw coloured body with a slight haze. Soft hoppy nose with smell of fresh fruits. Flavoured with initial tangy hops supported by hints of delicate malts. Rounded, dry bitter ending. Well bodied and moreish. One of my best lagers so far (enjoyed at home in Tromsø watching Eurosong on TV, 24.05.2008)

2.8
austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2008
Clear pale golden, small white head. Grainy malty nose with slight fruity hops. Slightly sweet malty flavor, exotic fruity hops and little grain. Clean bitter finish. Light and fruity, might try again to see if that grain belongs there or not.

3.1
TBone (17439) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2008
Bottled (BB 01/2009)
Clear golden color, small white head. Buttery, slightly diacetylic, Bohemian-pils like nose. Buttery, hoppy flavor with similarities to Mufloni NZPA’s hop profile. Nicely balanced, chewy malty pils. Good Urquell-imitation. Not exploding your mind, but good one.
