A: Slightly cloudy copper with moderate carbonation of small and large bubbles. A finger of yellow tinged frothy head.

S: Hard water, iron, slight pomelo skin, pear, little orange, a little foot smell but all these really light, think like you’re using a nose microscope.

T: Really light, hard water, little fruitiness like mentioned above but subtle and subdued. Light crisp bitterness.

M: Light, crisp and dry.

O: My first traditional ale by Brewdog. Really well done, yet surprising from such a radical company. Got in Thailand, drank in Kunming Jan 18th, 2015.

Right away you notice the slightly opaque golden hue and large bubbles that give way to tiny pearls and dime size head that dissipates fairly quickly. The nose has a grassy citrus smell that accents a light floral hoppiness, but don't worry the hops are just hiding. A lot of those flavours come through on the taste, with the hops really starting to present themselves. The feel in your mouth starts off light at first but those hops start to stick around coating the sides and back of your tongue. Overall, I enjoyed this beer. At 4.1% alcohol this is a nice flavourful balanced "light" beer that isn't light on taste. Recommended for those that are looking for a lower alcohol beer that's different from the norm.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: standard brown 355mL brown bottle, typically funky BrewDog label.

Appearance: pours a slightly hazy amber in colour with a reasonable off-white head that lasts. Decent lacing too.

Aroma: plenty of grapefruit and pine hops, tropical fruits and some bready malts.

Taste: the grapefruit and passionfruit from the aroma are definitely present, along with some pepper spice and grass.

Aftertaste: a good dose of hop bitterness comes through afterward with a touch of malt.

Mouth feel: a moderate mouth feel with a lower carbonation. Possibly could use a bit more bite.

Overall: a pretty decent pale ale per the BrewDog norm. A nice combination of hops and bread malts. The price of AU$78 a case of 24 x 330mL (2014) seems a bit steep, but maybe a 6-pack every now and then.
