Bottle shared by Paul at tasting at my house. Pours gold with off white head - very small. Nose/taste of smoked apple juice, smoked apple candy and light peat. Taste is watery with smoked apple. Lighter bodied.

Maxbier (198) - Maryland, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Not for craft beer drinkers. Aroma of diluted whiskey and sugar. Can't call this beer, more an alcohol delivery liquid. It tastes like sugar water mixed with cheap blended whisky. The finish is the part that makes you want to run for a tooth brush or mouth wash, artificial in flavor.

McTapps (3869) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a clear golden-amber colour with low ehad and medium body. Aroma of malt and grains with a hint of peat. Taste of torf, peat, light barley, light malt, mild hops, grains and roast. Hints of woods and bread. Not a nice beer, just too unbalanced and dusty.

MichaelAwesome (3871) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
Mit McTapps geteilt und kurz hinter der Grenze geholt. Dumpf, leicht malzig, etwas rauchig mit einer Prise an Getreide und Roggen. Im Abgang unangenehm und muffig, jedoch doch noch irgedwie trinkbar. Kein Zweites bitte.

peponi (300) - POLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Aroma: malty (sweet), there is some smokeness, honey. Appearance: clear golden color, poor white head. Taste: low bitterness, sweet, a little bit smoked (whisky malt), honey. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, sweet finish. Overall: There are some smoked notes, but this beer is too sweet.

PeatyPete (376) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014
Golden color with off-white head. Malty aroma equal like many alcohol-free beers. Taste is slightly sweet and has a smoky peaty aftertaste that fairly hangs.

danirock (1) - BARCELONA, SPAIN - JUL 18, 2014 does not count
Sorprendente, no tanto por la malta sino por el sutil toque ahumado de la misma. No para cada día.

rikstar (718) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2014
Op vakantie in Frankrijk gedronken juli 2014. Wat een bocht chemisch zoet.met in de verte een beetje bourbon, te slecht voor woorden. Heeft niets met whisky of met bier te maken

Calisky (601) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUL 16, 2014
Couleur brune claire, très légère mousse. Nez leger malt a whisky, sucre, caramel. Gout de malt a whisky, caramel leger. Bonne mais pas mon truc.

Can’t believe this used to be my favorite beer as a teenage student :) Basically mostly sweet caramel with a touch of toothpaste, and some mild scotch malt aroma and finish.Not dreadful but more of an caramel beer soda...
