I've liked several beers from brewdog and i'm looking forward to this as well.

Great looking beer, quite dark, almost amber. Clear with great carbonation, good fluffy head. Smell is less dominant than expected: it's a bit of herbs, grass and some sort of red berries. Taste is not that sweet like it's suggested on the label.
It's light and crisp.

Very balanced with the malts are bitterness and fruityness from hops. Very pleasant.

A - Bright cloudy orange body under two fingers of white soapy head and then heavy lacing.

S - Hop forward, passionfruit and wheat.

T - Again, hoppy flavours with a moderate bitter bite, orange zest and passionfruit.

M - Medium in body and carbonation.

O - Another solid Brewdog product.

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.

Thanks for the bottle Phyl21ca

Hazy pale blonde colour, one finger of white head, lots of lace left behind. Smell is of bready/biscuity malt, massive hop profile, tropical fruit, yeasty, floral with notes of pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is quite fruity and bitter, malt is secondary here, grassy and earthy with notes of lemon, dry in the finish. Mouthfeel is dry, medium body, med-high carbonation, prickly carbonation, quite smooth. Really liked this one, good low abv brew, quite drinkable.

A: Slightly hazy golden. Pours with minimal head. Not exactly beautiful, but it works.

S: Hops, dandelion, cabbages, honey. Pleasant, all in all a characteristic profile and very very good.

T: Slightly too bitter for my taste, but still oh so refreshing and tasteful. Half lager, half IPA mix.

M: Clear in the mouth, no chemical-esque off-tastes or even the least hint of alcohol (not surprising when it is so weak). Would have nothing to complain about if the aftertaste wasn't so bitter!!!

O: Definitely an above average beer, just keep in mind that it is really fully loaded with taste and smell - not easy to drink by any means.

Have bought it several times and will buy again.

Picked this one up in Barcelona. 330ml bottle.

A - Pours a cloudy yellow body, similar to a Belgian witbier. Pretty nice fluffy white head and decent retention.

S - Smells similar to their Punk IPA: grapefruit, orange, maybe a bit of pine. Some sweet caramel hints as well.

T - Starts out with a nice citrusy hop bite. A good amount of bitterness, followed by a very mild sweetness and some caramel and bread notes. The finish is dry and bitter, with hints of pine, similar to that of an American pale ale. Pretty good for what it is.

M - Fairly light body to it. Not too carbonated and a little dry. Drinks very well. No hint of alcohol.

O - Overall, this is not a special beer yet still an interesting one. It's not super tasty or complex, but it manages to pack a surprisingly strong hop kick while still being low on alcohol. Well, if it's not an experiment, it isn't BrewDog!
