Dead Pony Pale Ale – Brewdog

From Brewdog out of Aberdeenshire, Scotland comes the “Dead Pony Pale Ale”.  The beer pours a golden colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of tropical fruits, floral hops and some malts but the fruit really shines above all else.  The flavour is of hops bitterness, tropical fruits, citrus, melons and malts but being a session ale it is understated.  The alcohol content comes in at 3.8% but with a pretty good hops kick.  I really enjoyed this session ale but I wish that I had more than one bottle brought back from England for me.

Commercial Description:

Get ready to gun it down the Pacific Coast Highway through a hop-heavy west-coast wonderland.  This ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll.  Bright and bracing, Dead Pony* has been crafted from an insane amount of west coast hops to deliver massive citrus aromas. Dive in and the toasted malt base soon gives way to a huge box-fresh hop hit washing tropical fruit, floral hits and spicy undertones all over your palate.  This is a session ale with balls of equine proportions. Laidback, but hop-forward. California dreaming for the craft beer generation.

*no ponies were harmed in the making of this beer.

    So you had to have this one brought to you from England? That’s too bad for the rest of us! I have enjoyed nearly everything from those guys that I’ve tried.
