Werckmeister (1517) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 28, 2015
0,33l bottle at home thanks to my gf. BB 07/2016. copper / redish clear shiny color, small to medium big white head. smells of cardboard, light sweetness, honey, a bit peppery, spices. not too crazy about the smell. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes caramel, lightly bitter, some citric notes, tobacco, plums, some stale hops / a bit cardboardish again. finishes lightly bitter with peppery notes and some fruity notes. not a fan, drinks a bit harsh.

koshack (980) - Gdañsk, POLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Ciemnozłote, zmętnione. Piana drobna, biała. Opada do kożuszka na powierzchni. Aromat słaby, lekko słodowy. Trochę nut drewnianych. W smaku wytrawne, lekko goryczkowe. Ale tez słabo. Miało to być piwo wędzone-bardzo słabe. Po ogrzaniu wychodzi więcej nut wędzonych i zwiększa się goryczka. Ale nadal słabe jak na słodzie wędzonym whisky.

dnicolaescu (1513) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - DEC 20, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL. Slightly hazy deep amber, off-white sticky head. The aroma is full of aromatic Vienna malt and bread, very light spicy notes - could be peated, but it’s more like hops. Taste: very malty, not necessarily sweet, nice spicy hoppy finish. Had a beet of that vegetable/tomato off-flavour. No peat here, but it is nevertheless a very decent amber lager.

Das MacQueens Nessie Bier kommt aus Österreich - daher passt der Name irgendwie überhaupt nicht, sondern soll wohl lediglich die Verbindung zu Whiskey darstellen. Was dieses sog. Whiskey Malt Red Beer außer der duchaus hübschen Farbe noch mit Whiskey zu tun hat, bleibt mir verborgen - geschmacklich jedenfalls nix. Geschmacklich habe wir es hier mit einem normalen roten Lager zu tun - glatter Durchachnitt, nicht mehr, nicht weniger.

McSherman (427) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2015
Golden bis kuperfarben mit wenig weißem Schaum. Süßes Karamell, malzig und im Abgang eine etwas unharmonische röstige Bittere. Torf oder gar Whisky kann ich hier nicht erkennen.

Sebilinz (1361) - Linz, AUSTRIA - OCT 2, 2015
Bottle. Amber body with white head. Aroma is malty sweet. Taste is malts and sweetness. Aftertaste is nearly the same but with hints of malts.. Its funny how taste changes years ago this was an extreme beer for me.
