Itsumishi (45) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2016
Poured from a stubbie. Nose is much like a dry English Ale, bready malt, a touch of banana, a little coriander, just a hint of whisky. Appearance is a typical larger. A clear gold beer with a light foamy head. Taste is heavy sweet and a little bitter. Palate is thin, watery, high carbonation. Kind of like a weird cross between a mild wiess beer and English bitter. Very little Scotch... Disappointing.

prawlie (1500) - ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle. Amber and gassy appearance. Malty, with an acidic aroma. Light fruitiness with hints of banana. An easy drinking beer but a bit disappointing overall.

SinH4 (3175) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2015
Cloudy golden-orange color with small white head. Aroma is bitter caramel, butterscotch and toffee. Taste is slight caramel, some earthy old world hops and toffee. Quite sweet and a bit honey. Feels light. Low carbonation. Not too harmonious and a bit weak, although quite drinkable. Combined with food, a ridiculous booziness evolves.

josanguapo (1148) - SPAIN - DEC 4, 2015
From Hipercor. In Teku glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 2x05. Less disgusting than expected. Maybe because its softer than other whisky beers. However, at the end it still becomes a bit tiresome. No foam.

Niller (1449) - Hammel, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2015

Shain (169) - ISRAEL - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle, 330ml. Pours light golden colored with white head. Scent of light sweet malt and some fruity notes. Tastes quite sour with moderate sweetness. Light hoppy bitterness. Flavors of honey, apple, citrus. Some fruity hops. Pale malt. Slightly earthy and very light smokiness. Nice medium carbonation. I wouldn’t be able to tell that it’s made with whiskey.

The_Osprey (6556) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2015
Bottle share at Leighton’s, BB Feb 2016, 7%. Dark yellow / pale orange, lightly sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is light with oak, wood, butter and plastic. Body is medium to light, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is sodawater, buttery, biscuit. Just a hint of whisky maybe. Fine I suppose.

Theydon_Bois (17221) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2015
Bottle split at LKS, thanks to Daniel, 03/09/15. Pale golden blonde with a moderate off White covering. Nose is caramel, paper, grassy, vanilla. Taste comprises much the same, sweet and rather bland, paper chase all the way through. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Dull ... wars of tim.

rayaron (1411) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle sample. Clear golden with small white head. Light sweetish aroma with notes of port wine, raisin and honey. The flavor is quite alcoholic, medium sweetness, notes of whiskey and raisin. Flat, medium-bodied.
