I believe this is made by combining 77 lager and trashy blonde...both of which are good in their own right

It's a clear golden beer with a good sized foamy white head and lots of carbonation. The is very citrusy and full of floral aromas, with some light hops. The taste is surprisingly malty and creamy up front with a subtle sweetish toffee before powering through some bitterness and ending the way most Brewdog beers do with lingering hops. It's very active in the palete with lots of carbonation. Overall I like it. It's nothing groundbreaking but it is a good solid drinkable beer.

This is the first beer I've added to BA and while it feels like a great achievement, I wasn't quite sure where to peg this one in terms of style, even after consulting Brewdog's website. I think an English pale ale will have to suffice for now, until a more knowledgeable soul can correct me. Anyways, poured this one from a 330 ml bottle into a nonic.

Appearance: Pours a nice light golden-straw color with a big three-finger head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Head dissipates slowly until it is just a film over the top of the brew.

Smell: Really crisp and enjoyable smell of citrusy hops. Has a nice sweet malt backbone to it, as well. I can't pick out many other specifics from the smell, but it smells promising.

Taste: Not as promising as the scent would have intimated. The hops really get lost in the taste and the malts come out a lot more. The finish is drawn out a little bit too much, especially considering the hops were disappointingly weak in the taste.

Mouthfeel: As with some of Brewdog's other beers, this one has sort of a soapy mouthfeel in the end.

Drinkability: This could be a nicely drinkable brew considering the low ABV, but the soapiness in the taste really just kills any desire I would have to crack open another one of these.

Overall, this is a decent brew that's for a good cause (a portion of the profits go to supporting the Prostate Cancer Charity). The smell is so promising with a really nice balance of citrusy hops and sweet malts, but unfortunately it doesn't translate into the taste. Still, though, it's for a good cause, so you might as well try it.
