keg/ bottle 2012 Prototypes release.
A hoppy, dry hopped low ABV reasonably malty pilsner. At 4.2% this amber hued little gem infuses wholesome BrewDog hoppiness with classic lager sharpness. Best enjoyed whilst whistling the European Unions national anthem (does it have one), munching on a bratwurst and planning a weekend trip to Prague whilst listening to the Beastie Boys.

Ungstrup (36217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2013
Bottled. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, hops, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a bitter finish. The body is light.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Lovely fresh aroma hops up front, not in your face just damm pleasant. Medium body, lowish carbonation, has a slight diacetyl touch but not really unpleasant, fruity, spicy and aromatic with a rather low bitterness. A very enjoyable quaffer. 140113

gunnar (8662) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle from Brewdog. Pours clear golden with a big, fast diminishing white head. Aroma of grassy and herbal hops. Taste is moderate sweet, with a decent dry bitter end, herbal and grassy hops. Fizzy mouthfeel. Not the best from Brewdog, to put it mild.

jackl (7466) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle from Kris Wines. The pours deep gold with a large, creamy white head. Attractive. The nose is soft biscuit, cereal, some caramel and general sweetness. The taste is toasted bread, some pear and shortbread. Lightly hoppy crisp finish. Spare, light body. A bit syrupy. This isnt completely dialled-in, but its a pretty decent effort. Overall, an OK pils.

teorn88 (7612) - Rimini, ITALY - JAN 3, 2013
Tap at BrewDog Shoreditch. It pours clear golden amber with a thin white head. Earthy and grassy notes in the nose. Some hops as well. Similar flavours in the taste with a fairly dry finish. Medium/thin in body with good carbonation. Nothing unforgettable.

Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 I dont like this beer. The poorest i have had from Brewdog and surprised they even felt that this would be popular as a potential permanent beer. Its Irn Bru in colour with a head thinner than a beer mat. Its all hop aroma, ans some initial hop taste. This then passes and leaves not much else behind. Pointless.

erickok (5757) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2012
Golden clear body and off white head. Well hopped, tropical fruits and a present light malt base. Taste is lightly disappointing after this start, white bread malts. Clean start, light bitter, bit of cardboard taste unfortunately. Almost like they used poorer quality ingredients than usual (which Im sure they didnt). Good aroma, okay taste. Holds up fairly well. (33cl bottle from Chris)
