hogan873 (449) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Clear gold body with a thin white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Sweet aroma...caramel and just a touch of smoke. Medium mouthfeel, nothing too exciting. The flavor is okay. Sweet...corn and caramel. Really no smoke. Just a minor bite at the end. Meh.

Drino (2) - - MAY 15, 2015 does not count
Aroma mediano, seco, malte sobressai. Boa aparência, bem consistente. Seca na boca, bem lupulada, lager típica. Uma boa cerveja para um dia quente. Nota 7.5.

Hugi (463) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2015
Orange/light amber coloured and clear with a full white head. Malty, bready and sweet aroma. Notes of peach and in the background maybe a bit smoke. Taste is malty, nuts, biscuit, caramel. Full body. Good beer, but not very much reminding on a whisky.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2015
330ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.com. Pours reddish amber. Sweetish caramel aroma. Taste unfortunately lacks the whisky malt flavours expected.. instead appearing rather dull with not a lot going on.
