Vargatul (139) - Bucharest, - DEC 18, 2012
0.33 l bottle, from Auchan. Amber colour, claer liquid, short white head. Aroma has notes of malt, honey, brown sugar, walnut jam. The taste is bitter, the body is full, the carbonation is average. It has a licorice texture and a bittersweet aftertaste.

tricksta_p (3148) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is strong sweet malt, caramel, buttery notes and some alcohol. Flavour is unpleasant malty sweetness. Body is medium. I don’t like this at all, overpowering nasty malty sweetness. Onedimensional and unpalatable.

Aroma: roasted dark malts, malty, something like skunk. Appearance: clear golden-amber color thin white head. Taste: medium herbal bitterness, malty, some woody notes, stalky, quite dry, skunk. Palate: low body and medium carbonation, malty finish. Overall: Rather bland beer, nothing interesting.

Sdaniel90 (821) - Mexico City, MEXICO - APR 11, 2016
Bottle, 33cl. Deep amber/orange with a frothy tan head. Strong aromas of corn with hints of roasted malt, Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and creamy. Medium sweet corn and malty character into a fiery, dry whisky bitter finish, Disappointing, but pleasant.

Werckmeister (1837) - 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 (1219) - 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 (1685) - 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.
