Looks good. Maybe a shade lighter than some EPA's. More of a dull straw yellow. Slightly hazy, great head and lacing

Some malt sweetness, mostly heavy pine like hoppiness.

Taste is similar...who wudda thunk it? lol Thin plae malts that are totally bushwhacked by this wave of grapefruit peel and pine resin. The resin clings to the back of the tongue like a barnicle.

Not as light as I thought it might be given the lower ABV. Has a certain slickness to it.

Worth a try. More like an American version to me. Pricey stuff though..

A 330ml bottle with a BB of Nov 2011. Features a cool purple label with the usual Brewdog blurb.

Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. A hazy pale gold colour with light carbonation and indications of live yeast. Produces a huge head of white foam with remarkable stability; this eventually reduces to a thin surface layer. Lovely aroma; light malt with floral hops and notes of citrus and yeast.

The taste is nicely balanced between malt and hoppy bitterness - a well judged flavour. Slightly sweet, with plenty of floral and citrus notes from the hops. Mouthfeel is pleasingly smooth and tingly with a mildly astringent finish. Aftertaste of aromatic hoppy notes.

A very nice beer, and easy to drink. I was worried that it might be too weak or lacking in flavour compared to their other brews, but it achieves an excellent balance. Light and refreshing - well worth trying if you come across it.

Fantastic liner notes, errr, label ramblings - I'm sure my gf would love these sensibilities...

This beer pours a hazy medium golden straw hue, with two fingers of rocky, chunky off-white head, which leaves some spattered, random lace around the glass.

It smells of crisp white cracker grain, and lemony Saaz hops. The taste pretty consistent with the bready malt, a bit more lemon rind, and zingy grassy hops.

The bubbles are moderate, if a bit preachy at times, the body a fairly light medium weight, and it finishes quite dry, the hops holding sway, though now tempered in their Bohemian qualities.

A very Continental version of an English Pale Ale, the hops betraying the actual style. A nice sessioner, I would imagine downing a few of these to be a good start to the night.

A - A hazy golden fluid, a nice pleasant color to watch. Op top floats a white head that turn to fluffy slowly.

S - Pine, fresh cut grass and citrus!! If this is a blond, it smell definitely like an IPA.

T - Not to sweet upfront, more dry tasting than expected. I would say this is a blond in taste, very surprising. A tasteful body, fresh and slightly piny.

M - A real bitter aftertaste that follows after the medium carbonation has died. I mis a creamy slight sticky touch, which I do tend to like in a beer.

O - I like this blond, or should I call this a failed IPA?? What does it matter, it tastes good.

Fun mild. Obtained from the brewery itself. Pours blond with nice foamy white head. The aroma, I agree, was buttery. The taste contained a good hoppiness,and some fruitiness a bit below average mouthfeel. But very drinkable. A tad acidic in aftertaste. Nice one.

Golden pour with a small head.
Fresh, crisp, hoppy aroma of passionfruit, grapefruit and lychee with sweet caramel malt and honey in the background.
Flavours are similar in the way of fruit and a strong sweet malty hit, but the a solid bitterness comes out of left field and blows you away. Powerful stuff.
Light carbonation (could have done with more for a more refreshing finish) and body.

330 ml bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy gold color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both nice. The aroma is all tropical fruit and bready malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's some peppery spice flavor too. There's also a lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit slick and creamy with good carbonation. Drinkability is decent, too. Not a bad brew overall.

330ml poured from a brown bottle into a standard English pint pot.

A. A clear, sunny gold coloured beer topped by a finger thick white bubbly head.

S. Pungently hoppy. Hard to detect anything else apart from a slight sourness.

T. Quite a strong hop blast, some citrus notes and a dryish, long bitter finish.

M. Medium bodied.

D. Not a fan. Not enough complexity for my liking. Can Brewdog brew anything that doesn't smell and taste like their other beers?

Served on cask at the Horniman's pub in London.

This was a great cask beer. Quite hoppy. Heavy on the American hop varieties. Very floral hops. Foamy fluffy head. Quite easy drinking.

This was a very refreshing beer. I great lighter offering from Brewdog. I could drink this all day.

Bottle: Poured a bright golden color ale with a nice pure white foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of lightly sweet cereal notes is quite refreshing. Taste is not very complex with light semi-sweet cereal notes with a light dry finish. Body is slightly fuller then average with good carbonation. Refreshing and easily drinkable with limited complexity.

2.8/5  rDev -20.9%

This beer has quite a neutral taste, clean and clear. It's one of the more quaff-able Brewdog beers as it has a forgiving after taste and it reminds me of a good home brewed number. That said it is distinctly average across the board, the clean and clear taste ultimately lacks complexity and at the cost price it should offer more than just a slightly clearer generic taste. It also has a metallic taste which is not as strong as some other beers in their range, but it may put off some drinkers. I would say it is clinical in it's taste.
