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.

flying_pig (1547) - SCOTLAND - MAY 27, 2017
330ml bottle from Brewdog.com (1.28 approx.):
This one turned out to be quite an interesting beer from Brewdog & one that started well with some nice caramel & bread malts to give the beer an early sweetness before some of the grassy hops & subtle bitterness started to come through. It was a very strongly carbonated beer that seemed overly gassy at times but was still pleasant enjoy, my biggest complain however would be the balance of the beer with it seeming a little aggressive at times & definitely a little dated too; that probably explains why Brewdog stopped brewing it in truth. Its on that Im pleased Ive managed to try but Im not sure Id go back to it again if it was a permanent offering either.
