Half Pint at Brewdog Edinburgh (£3.50):
Reddish amber with a 0.25cm creamy head with some lacing on the sides & not bad retention, holding okay & covering the surface of the beer at least.

Subtle & creamy initially before some citrus & pine notes plus some floral come through. Sweet malts & faint alcohol with some caramel follow. It smelt quite juicy & refreshing with some grapefruit coming through as well.

Bitter & fruity with some pine, grapefruit & floral hops. A nice sweetness with some caramel and malts & orange plus citrus flavours & faint alcohol.

Smooth & medium bodied with medium carbonation too. Hints of alcohol throughout but this didn't take anything away from the drink & it was still an easy on to get through, with some nice creamy bursts in places & a decent balance overall.

Another excellent beer from Mikkeller, it's not often the fail to deliver but this one was particularly good with a great aroma matched by the taste with plenty of hops present & a good balance throughout. A very nice beer for a hot summer evening, & it's not often I get to say that in Scotland.

Alias: Green Easter

Solid beer. Not the best IPA, but it has all the right ingredients. It is overly bitter, but not the extreme. The mouthfeel is a bit thick. It is not very cloudy, but it has a nice cloudy yellow color. Definitively a beer that will fill you up.

Nice head, though not very carbonated.

Green Easter pours a turbid orange edged garnet with billowing tan colored head. Big clump lays claim to the middle of the glass, which is coated in a web of chunky lace. Smell: whiff of grapefruit, soft red apple, caramel, sweet orange slices. Muddled and balanced, like an NC ipa. Taste: also confused or just not very good... caramel, lots of it, cut by a thin bitterness...pith, resin, borderline medicinal. Great label, not great beer.
