Golden color with a thick thin head with decent retention.
Mild aroma with notes of honey, white bread and orange citrusy.
Flavor with notes of biscuit, lager yeast, floral and spicy hops, honey and oranges. Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness. It feels short of its 40 IBUs.
Light to medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Although flawless Pale Lager, I found this behind from what I expected (in matters of hop level). Several breweries are producing great Pale Lagers. This one is a pleasant barbecue beer.
Hazy golden color with off-white head. Aroma is grainy and mostly malt forward with some earthy hops in the background, similar to a helles. Taste follows with malt sweetness and some honey notes, floral hops on the finish with a bit of bitterness. Medium body with medium plus carbonation. A nice, balanced lager.
Chill-hazed gold with a tower of white froth that rings. 4
Dusty grain sack, some tin, slight pencil erasers and noble flowers. 4
Saltines, slight doughy sweetness, then vague lemon zest, pollen and hay. 3.5
Crisp, light, slight mineral. 3.75
Magnum and Perle
Here’s the issue: Brewdog, hop darlings that they are, should be and secretly want to be making a pilsner. And this is a lager. So where they talk about the hops, it actually just fizzles to nothing on the end. That’d be OK with some Helles sweetness, but that’s not there either. Also, watery with no snap. Add another to the list of aimless BD lager attempts. 3.75
From Club del Gourmet of El Corte Ingles El Duque. In Teku glass. After dinner. Sweet, with little hops, just some citrus ones that dont seem very fresh, orange with lemon notes. Cardboard. Flat and boring. Bb 27 Jan 18. If this is how 21st century lagers are suppose to be I prefer the old ones.
From a 330ml bottle.
L: Light amber/gold. Hazy with no visible carbonation. Thin, white head that disappears quickly.
S: Sweet, light malt. Nothing grainy. Nothing much at all.
T: Bit of malt. Bit of citrus. Short, bitter finish. Nondescript.
F: Watery, bland, lacks carbonation. Nasty.
O: What a waste of 4.7% ABV. Terrible. Marketing blurb is the worst hyperbole I've ever read on a beer label.
It could have been a good beer. But it lacks on many aspects. Its sweetness is not balanced with a crispness. The malt isn't very complimented by the hops but goes a bit against it. The fruitiness is the good part but it's a bit off. Pass your way
It's got a huge foaming white head which is good because
the very pale yellow body combined with a very wheat aroma gives it an unsettling piss comparison
The taste is also wheat with hops starting as the flavour finishes
