2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 33cl. A pale amber beer. Smell is heavy on bottom yeast (hazelnut) and metallic. Aroma is very low, low on malt, low body, low on whiskey malt, some caramel notes and very bitter specially at the finish. No hop character, very disappointing beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
F-king cool find at THE RHINO BAR Toronto. Deep flavorful pale and red malts, finishes with a crisp malty taste accented by some lemon and grassy hops, bready and full-palate to the extreme. Ballsy beer.

330ml bottle. Coppery to red in colour with a flat even head, reasonably clear. Smoky malt aromas are present but are not very strong and the aroma lets this beer down a bit. Mild smokiness in the flavour that is not overpowering but you can taste it.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This is a lightish lager is designed to display the qualities of the malt used. Unfortunately, though mildly interesting, the malt is nothing to write home about. It has a a slightly drier texture and grainier aroma than non-whisky malts; that’s about how far it goes. Past that, it’s a decent czech/german style light lager with a hefty price tag. Try a bottle if you’re curious what whisky malt is about, then let it rest forevermore.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Birra piuttosto dolce, aroma dominato dai malti, poca sensazione di torbato, non molto diversa da una bock un po’ robusta (ma non robusta in alcool: troppo leggera per la sua dolcezza. Not sure the new recipe was a good idea).
