                • Might I suggest Waggle Dance?



                  Fairly popular (should be in most supermarkets, definitely in Sainbury's and Tesco) and has a unique taste.

                  • OoOoo yeah, Waggle Dance is a nice drop, haven't had it in years either
                    I'm up for that

                    • Delayed Punk Review:

                      Initial impressions: Garish bottle, don't like their marketing or the brand image they are going for, but heard good stuff about the beer. Fruity and very hoppy on opeing wth a good fizz.

                      Appearance: Looks more like a medium coloured lager than an IPA to me. Similar to the American Craft Pale Ales such as Sierra Nevada. Lots of bubbles that lasted right to the end.

                      Smell: Very hoppy and herby. Almost fruity, but bitter with it.

                      Taste: It is a bit too heavy on the bitter hops. The overpowering smell makes it hard to appreciate the first taste. After that it gets much more pleasant though. Again I am reminded of the American brews, but it definately has some classic IPA in there too.

                      Mouthfeel: Light and refreshing for a real ale. About the right level of fizz for me and good with a mild chill so summer friendly.

                      Overall: 7/10 an interesting brew that does more right than wrong. This is the closest UK beer I have had to the American ones that are currently regular go to beers for me. Where it goes wrong is a little to heavy on te hops and the bitterness, and that is from someone who enjoys that flavour. Would happily buy again if on an offer, but would struggle to choose it over the American ones if I am honest. Anyone who enjoys this owes it to themselves to buy the following: Sierra Nevada, Samual Adams, Anchor Steam and Boston Lager

                      • I think we need at least x3 reviews to put an ale on the score board


                        I did manage to pick up some Waggle Dance on Saturday, review will be coming up.

                        Anyone else up for the Waggle Dance? (woah easy there Tystar)

                        • Bit late to the game but I'm a big fan of the BrewDog stuff, a friend of mine is a shareholder and we went to the AGM on Saturday, some very tasty beers to be sampled. My favourite was their 5th year anniversary beer, Dog A:



                          15.1% so a bit strong and being a stout, it won't be for everyone but it was surprisingly easy to drink. Made with chilli and did genuinely taste like coffee chilli chocolate.

                          They're also bringing out a new Pale Ale that is around 3.8%, as they lack some weaker beers apart from 5am Saint. It's called Dead Pony Club and is good also

                            I know I have had that before and like it.

                            • Was in a pub in the States that had 50 beers on tap, 5 on cask and another 500+ bottles. For the beers on tap, everything was stored upstairs and piped down to the bar in what looked like a giant alcoholic church organ. Epic.

                                You've just described my personal heaven. Madonna said it was a place on Earth, now I believe it!

                                Tried the Golden Goose IPA the other day. Wasn't bad at all, light and fruity with a mellow hoppy/malty aftertaste.

                                Still keep going back for my bottles of brakspar tripple though. That's a malty beverage if there ever was one
