21st Century Lager
Brewed with 100% malt and a juggernaut of hops, our cold-conditioned Kingpin puts lager back on top! Expect the first wave of robust, full-bodied malt character to hit you, followed closely by spicy, citrus notes that charge across the palate until an assertive bitter finish wins the day.

planky84 (3603) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2018
On tap at Brewdog, Soho. Amber pour with a white head. Lots of malt, grapefruit and nuts in the nose. More of the same in the flavour. Not too bad.

MrTipple (7282) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2018
10Feb2018 Sweet grain and bread malts, caramel, straw, bit of hay. Clear gold, tiny, creamy, white head. Light bitter. More sweet grain and bread malts, caramel, straw, cardboard, medium bodied, medium carbonation. Alright, but doesn't stand out in this boring style. Keg at BrewDog, Shepherds Bush.

Well it's definitely lager but had I drank blind I would have picked as a competent effort from a major brewer. So on this basis probably needs to deliver a much improved flavour experience (which it doesn't) and I'm not sure of the relevance given the strength and standard off the Brew Dog range.

kamanova_boy (536) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 27, 2018
Bottle from Damian. Pours pale golden with small white head, aroma bit fruity, straw, some malt. Taste is flat, bit fruity, bit malt, short finish. Mediocre.

ogivlado (8446) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 21, 2018
Bottled 330ml. -from Geant Albertville. Yellow/golden coloured, small white head, weak herbal nose. Grassy, light herbal hoppy, touch of caramel and light citrus with dry bitter finish. Pretty mainstream and quite ordinary lager.

Hokkisilla suoraan pullosta 1/2018. Well hopped but balanced tasty lager. Recommendable.

Zlotta (4244) - Hagen, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2018
Sampled from tap at 'Holy Craft Beer Bar'. Clear, golden amber with a white head. Sweetish, slightly fruit, a little resiny and a bit grassy aroma of mango, passion fruit and some pine with a touch of grains. Moderately sweet, slightly fruity, a bit grassy taste of grains, some passion fruit and a touch of mango, followed by a short, minimally bitter, a little grassy finish. Thin to medium body, smooth and a bit effervescent mouthfeel, almost flat. Very inoffensive, pleasant, drinks super easily, not that exciting though.

thejackpacker (764) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2018
Can from Brewdog. Dissapointing. Weird kind of fart smell. Strange floral flavour in the lager but not nicely hopped. Another example where a really good brewery slips up when making a lager. Not terrible though really but not worth any more than a bog standard lager.

2.6
ChrisOfstad (472) - Hamar, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2018 On draft at Brewdog Soho. Clear Golden with big white head. Malts, hops aroma and taste. Some sweetness.
