Brewdog: Unfiltered Fake Lager (Scotland: Bohemian Pilsner: 4.7% ABV)
Visual: Slightly hazy apricot gold. Off white bubbles for a head.
Nose: Crushed hop oils. Spicy hops. Apricot. Menthol fresh.
Body: Frothy texture. Nice bitterness and greenery grip. Slight gritty feel at times. Grapefruit tartness. Pineapple. Spicy hops. Apricot. Toffee malt backing.
Finish: Some gritty hops and hop oil bitterness. Grapes. Slightly sour – elderberry. Goes into a very dry feel. Dried apricot. Greenery. Prickled nettles hop.
