Light amber color. Small head with good carbonation. Copper aroma. Taste is pretty mild. Scotchy finish from the peat-smoked malt. Finish is great, but the sweet caramel is too overpowering.

PeatyPete (360) - 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.

Sorprendente, no tanto por la malta sino por el sutil toque ahumado de la misma. No para cada día.

rikstar (679) - 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

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...

Used to be one of my favourite beers some 20 years ago, hard to understand why today. Sugary maltiness is more or less all there is to find. The 4 euros I had to pay on the seafront bar for this beer didn’t improve the tasting experience either...

Cunningham (4333) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2014
Appearance: Clear deep golden color with a small white heahat end up in a tiny layer. Some lacing.
Aroma: Mild fruity, malty and mild scotch.
Palate: Medium (+) body. Slightly sweet and a moderate bitterness. Average to soft carbonation.
Taste: Malty, raisins, fruity and a mild scotch.
Overall impression: Not my style. And I have never rated a beer that have 0 in style before. It was absolutely drinkable. Nothing wrong with it, but not anything to write home about either.
Personal stats: Can from Gundersen.

Can from a street market within the Latin Quarter of Paris, France. This is among the strangest beers I have ever had. It tastes nothing like it smells. The aroma is of stale pipe tobacco. But the flavor is sweet and mellow like watered down whiskey. There is an aftertaste of scotch, its subtle but still present. I dont hate nor like this. It is just very, VERY odd!!!!

Bouteille de 250 ml (6.6% ABV) achetée dans une SAQ. Dégustée le 24 novembre 1995. Bière ambrée (couleur whisky/cognac) limpide. Mousse peu, bulles fines. Arôme persistant de gazon vert chauffé, de cognac et d’alcool. Douce, léger gout de tourbe.
