Rare & Limited Bottles: #101 BrewDog Trashy Blonde
This is the first post in what will be a series dedicated to the appreciation of the finer side of Beerhouse on Long’s expansive beer menu. While we do promote having “99 bottles of beer on our wall”, we do have an extended menu containing a constantly revolving selection of rare and limited bottles from around the world. This series will be an in-depth discussion of these specialist beers, delving into the finer details of beer tasting.
The first on our list, the BrewDog Trashy Blonde, takes after its namesake in being a remarkably simple golden ale with a twist. This is a very sessionable beer that delivers where it counts while holding back a touch on the traditional BrewDog hoppy punch. It pours a dirty blonde colour and gives a decent head. The aroma is particularly malty with considerable caramel being offset by fruity scents of mango and passion fruit. The flavour is on the sweet side with notes of passion fruit and guava mingling with butterscotch and a finish of mild citrus hops. This flavour profile coupled with a low carbonation and a light mouthfeel makes this a very more-ish and easy to drink beer. Definitely one for the aficionados and newcomers alike!
