Bottle 0,33 L. A bit hayz yellow colour with big frothy, fully lasting, white head. There’s also very intensive carbonation going on. Mostly hoppy aroma of grapefruits, grass, herbs and some yeasty soapy and earthy notes, too. Taste is fruity sweet at the start, but it quickly turns into heavy bitter. Good, refreshing, summertime beer. pottygok (548) - Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2013
Aroma: Yeast aromas--cheese, perhaps--and hints of dry cereal. All very faint.
Appearance: Straw gold with a thin, white head.
Taste: Light sourness with hints of sweetness at the edges for balance.
Palate: Light body, thin texture, soft carbonation, long finish.
Overall: Meh...I’m really not blown away by this. It’s drinkable, and obviously some thought went into it, but I wouldn’t seek this one out again. ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 15, 2013
Világos, aranysárga színe van, habja vékony, buborékos, fehér és gyorsan búcsút int nekünk. Illata vizes szalmás, élesztős, zöld komlós, malátás. Ízében is ugyanezeket a jegyeket mutatja, szóval egy lager a sok közül. Könnyű, kissé vizes teste van és közepesen szénsavas. Utóíze kesernyés, száraz. Egy a sok közül, ami talán azzal hívja fel magára minimálisan a figyelmet, hogy kesernyésebb, mint az átlag lágerek.

This pretty and tasty lager pours a very light yellow with plenty of bubbly action. Not much aroma here but that is the only weakness that I detect. Robust and effervescent and a little dry too. Nice cereal taste as well. Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2013
Thanks Ogreface for sharing. Poured clear yellow with a small lacing white head. Some aroma of hay, malt and sourish yeast, light european hops. Medium bodied one with light malt, grains and yeast, some herbal-grassy hop in the finish.

Bottle from beernavigator. Pours golden and clear with white head. Herbs, citrus and brett on the nose. The surpricing slightly tart bretttaste puzzles me, herbs, flowers, limezest, little bitterness, dry finish, fresh, lots of carbonation. Not a hoppy beer, but crisp and refreshing with that herbal/bretty twist. Jimmythespoon (472) - - FEB 14, 2013
Pours a clear golden yellow. For what this is, it’s very enjoyable, crip and refreshing with the right amoun of hops to make it stand out. Good beer for this style. jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Multiple cans sunk while watching Kraftwerk @ the Tate Modern. Forgive me for not actually pouring the beer. Appearance defaults to a 3. The aroma’s light biscuit, graham cracker. Touches of tropical fruit. Maybe some honeyed apple. The taste is pleasingly hop-forward. This is certainly not a traditional lager. Nice tropical fruits. Some hints of mango and pineapple. General pale malts. Smooth white bread. Light body, active carbonation. Very easy to drink. This rates highly on the ’poundability’ scale. Overall, a nice little number. Maybe not a perfect post-workout beer, but it’s close... armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 9, 2013

There is one beer I always have plenty of in my fridge and beer cellar, namely the versatile, easy-to-drink, wife-friendly 77 Lager from BrewDog. Could a lager from the other doggy style brewery Flying Dog be as good? It doesn’t start out very well, the colour of the beer is simply too light and watery looking, I like my beers to look like they’ve got something to offer! The very light golden body is initially clear, but as I empty the bottle I get some particles and some yeast haze mixed in. The head is large, frothy, white, very long-lived and laces the glass excellently. The aroma is not strong with notes of pale malts, fruits and citrus. Not bad, but a bit boring, and very far from the rather intense, malty, hoppy and complex aroma of the 77 Lager. The taste is light sweet, light acidic and with a light to moderate bitter finish that is dry and too short. The flavours are subdued, with faint fruits, lemon, yeast and some quite sharp, almost sour herby notes. The flying dogs try to mask the very light and watery nature of the body with a lively carbonation, but I’m not fooled. It’s quite crisp and refreshing, and might be a better than average lager, but I’m still highly disappointed.
