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

Cask@GBBF2011 (thanks Mika H. of BH!) Deep golden colour, small head. aroma is fruits, wood, some slight whisky sting (almost cognac sweet) with some vanilla and mild caramel. Flavour is sweet malts, some whisky sting, mild wood as well as some slight vanillaish notes. Pleasantly balanced already now, but will probably improve even more with time.

GBBF. Cask. Clear brown beer, no real head. Light semi dry palate. A little apple and then nice soft whisky tones. Some toffeeish malt. Semi dry finish with more even mild whisky flavours. Nice but possibly a tad young.

Clear amber color, beautiful with red shades, with too large head. The aroma is strange; there is some good beer here, but also a strange (although not hostile) aroma of goat cheese, very light ammonia, and then hazelnuts.
The carbonation left is quite low; the flavor is a bit malty but anonymous; it has a light woody and cheesy character, a shade of whiskey, and a remarkably empty final.
Nothing to sweat for.

cask at gbbf 2011 ... golden amber ... sweet toffee malt ... light fruity nose ... very sweeet ... juicy soft fruits ... light whiskey overlays .... soft easy ... but whisky isnt balanced in with beer, and whisky dominates linger ... maybe age will help.
