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.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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).
