330 ml. bottle. Pours a bright golden colour, qieth a two fingers head that leaves a good lace and ring. Smell of hops, herbs, grain and some citrus. Medium to full body, fizzy carbonation. Taste of grains, herbs and citrus. To me, a really great lager that does not pale in comparison to Urquell or Budvar.

Tried on-tap at BrewDog Camden in Camden Town, London. This beer started out as an April Fool's joke, but was brewed as a way to "reclaim" the wonderful European lagers that have been filtered beyond recognition.

Pours a very clear golden colour, very light in the body with coarse-bubbled, riddling carbonation. Head is a foamy white that collapses and settles out to very little. Lace forms in bits and pieces. Looks okay.

Clean characters to the aroma. Grainy with Saaz coming through giving grassy green notes. It doesn't have a great deal of complexity though, and it certainly has very little oomph behind it.

Clean entry on the front-palate, but from there it's downhill. Grainy, weak sweetness gives off honey characters without much balance. Slight crispness on the back tries to provoke some balance, but there's nothing doing. Weird coffee bitterness wraps it up. Feel is extremely light and crisp, but it doesn't have much to work with.

I started out feeling as though BrewDog has pranked themselves: they set out to prove what a good euro-lager could be, and ended up just proving how generic a beer they could brew. But in actual fact I fear they've just ended up pranking me—I paid BrewDog prices for something not significantly better than Carlsberg. Well played.
