330ml Bottle from Brewdog Online Shop (£2.50):
Bright, medium amber with a thin, foamy white lacing that covers the surface with some sticking to the sides.

Sweet grassy hops & citrus with a biscuit like aroma & lager malts. Light hops & an almost IPA like aroma with a combination of grapefruit and pine with some bitterness & lemon. It's light & fresh.

Fresh with some citrus lemons, some grassy hops & pine follow with a pleasant bitterness accompanying them. The malts from the nose are here as well but there are hidden slightly more by the hops. I could detect a little sweetness & some background fruits too.

Lively & quite with solid carbonation & more bitterness & hops than I anticipated, this one has hints of an American IPA in it & feature a big citrus tang on the tongue. The taste is clean, crisp & goes down well with a decent balance as well.

Quite an interesting offering that fell somewhere between the premium lager it is marketed at & a hopped-up American IPA with more bitterness & hops than I was expecting from a pale lager. It was very refreshing & lively with strong carbonation & a nice balance.

The colour is pale gold (7 EBC), the liquid is clear. The compact three finger head is off-white. It sinks very slowly leaving lots of thick lacing.

The smell is smooth and a bit hoppy. Grapefruits, pine needles and newly cut wood. Crisp sweetness and a fragile hint of paper.

The taste is bitter and clean. The bitterness fades quickly leaving room for clean sweet flavours with some honey. Medium body. The aftertaste brings back the bitter notes with grapefruit and lemon juice. The finish is bitter-sweet and clean.

The carbonation is medium strong, the small bubbles short lived. The liquid is semi-smooth.

A clean and somewhat American lager. Or rather, a German pils with an American twist. Not bad at all, but not much depth.
