COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewer’s Reserve No.3 has spent 800 days gently maturing in old Auchentoshan whisky barrels, adding a spirit-like edge to the beer, particularly on the nose...Brewer’s Reserve No.3’s extensive maturation time has infused the beer with delicious vanilla, warm honey and spicy ginger flavours. These combined with the rich malt body and pleasant sharp fruitiness derived from the beer, result in a wonderfully complex and very satisfying beer

Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2011 Cask, one-third pint as my final beer at the Great British Beer Festival ‘11, and my last drink at Earls Court Exhibition Centre, ever. Transparent amber body colour. Bright, shiny surface. Smell of whisky oak, notes of vanilla and a touch of dry bread. Half-tart plums and dried fruits in flavour sustained by woody dryness and whisky with a bourbon touch. Full bodied and rather heavy to drink. Good sipper, a tad too young, perhaps (London 04.08.2011).
