Bottle at home, not what I expected. Do you know the Jack Daniels Mixdrinks with about 5% alcohol? It tasted pretty much the same. Weird sweet whiskey malt taste. I think the only positive thing about this beer is the colour.

I tried 0.5 lt. can. It is very sweety and tastes like caramel. I did not taste any bitterness. You don’t feel like drinking beer.

One of the original whisky type beers, there is still more whisky than beer here making for a very austere spirity type brew. Pretty inaccessible unfortunately.

PapaVillum (630) - Valby, DENMARK - APR 9, 2015
33 cl, flaske, 5,8 % ABV, BB 10/2015, nydt på Le Ketje i Nice i Frankrig, 9. april 2015. Gylden, let røgfarvet, men klar Scotch Ale med pæn stor hvid skumtop på 3-4 cm tykkelse. Svinder til kant og overflade efter en halv snes minutter. Aroma præget af maltsødme og en snert af whisky-noter. Smagen er præget af sødme og en meget let bitterhed. Sødmen er medium fyldig, og overdøver øllet. Dårlig balance. Kroppen er middel let, og konsistensen olieret. Karbonering på et medium niveau. Eftersmagen sødlig, kort og lettere kedelig. Generelt en kedelig og næsten for forudseelig øl, som højst sandsynligt er tilsat whiskysirup og dermed prøver "skaberen" ikke at skabe et nyt produkt, men blande to allerede skabte. Gå forbi!

Bottle. Pour is light clear brown with a thin head, aroma is sweet lemonade. Taste is sweet, some earthiness and malty notes, but dominated by sweetness. Artificial

Kita (1422) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 20, 2015
Can, 0.50l. Clear deep golden brown color with small frothy white head and average visible carbonation in palate. Aroma of caramel, dark fruits, butterscotch with smokey hints. Taste starts with heavy sweet caramel and butter, following is mild fruity, mouthfeel is warming, while finish is mildly bitter. Light to medium body, sticky texture and average carbonation in palate. Artificial syrupy wannabe beer...

Diabobale (276) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Una poco di buono. Una francese. Nulla a che vedere con le più famose scotch ale. Molto industriale, colore e sapore troppo artificiali

Fashawn (409) - Montesarchio, ITALY - NOV 8, 2014
Not a very Good beer. Clear brown with no head. Malt and scotch aroma, some sweetness with no tracks of bitterness. Normal beer.

Gorm (1700) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2014
Klar gyllen farve med lyst skum. Lukt av røykt malt. Smak av honning og mild wiskey. Søt maltpreget ettersmak. En god øl til desert. Import.
