Bottle from a Glasgow ASDA. Pours golden with a thin white head. The taste is fairly fruity citrus with smokey whiskey notes. Thereís a fairly unpleasant dry after taste. Not good.

UXO (411) - CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Pours clear medium gold with one fingers of dense white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, patchy minimal lacing (3/5). Nose is sweet malt, honey, faint whisky and oaky vanilla (5/10). Taste is aggressively sweet with faint whisky notes, finishing bitter (4/10). Light to medium body, moderate to low sustained carbonation, with a lingering sticky bitter and faint whisky finish (3/5). Iím not a big fan of scotch ales / wee heavies at the best of times, and this doesnít come anywhere near the best. Aggressive sugary sweetness and only a hint of whisky conditioning, on top of a sweet malt base and no hop character. About the best thing I can say about this is, at least itís not peated malt. (10/20)

The lightest touch of whisky Iíve ever experienced in a "whisky beer". Clear gold with a thin white head.

dragosani (49) - SPAIN - JUL 6, 2014
Botella 33cl Color tostado oscuro con poca (escasa casi inapreciable) espuma. Sabor y aroma de la cerveza quedan inadvertidos por el sabor a whisky, eso si, con toques a madera, demasiada sensaciůn de licor que se queda en boca en lugar de los toques a malta. Una cerveza que te deja sabor a whisky, no una cerveza con sabor a whisky, por lo que parece que te estŠs tomando un whisky un poco espumoso.

maledictum (646) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUN 26, 2014
(Bottle) pours light amber with almost no head. Red wine aroma with buttery, oaky tones. Notes of butterscoch, also a bit acid. Flavour starts really buttery/fudgey and sweet but continues pretty wine-ish with dry notes at the end.

zvsn (712) - ISRAEL - JUN 17, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 Clear copper with a frothy head. Aroma of sweet malts and whisky, some fruity hints. Taste - very sweet and cloying, caramel malts, medicinal flavors with alcoholic bitterness. Light-bodied, too strong sweetness makes it difficult to drink. Could be better.

kerenmk (2587) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle. Clear muted gold. Alcoholic, candy and a little oxidized aroma, rather sweet and alcoholic with surprising malty undertones and toffee taste that spreads in your mouth and lingers. Long finish, full body. Too sweet and heavy for me.
