Bathory (458) - Bryne, - NOV 16, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2012 Pours a golden, hazy colour with almost no head. Aroma of oak, wood and caramel. Flavour are really much of oak, some spruce, pine and caramel also. Good a quite light body for a 7 %, but i really likr it. Smooth palate with soft carbonation.

prawlie (1375) - Berkshire, 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 (1600) - Garching, 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.

thmsboyd (188) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle BBE: April 2016. Chilled. Bright coppery amber body with a small white head. Low intensity nose, principally malty caramel with some doughy character. A touch of butyric, but generally fresh. Hard to detect any whisky on the nose. Heavy, fruity sweetness to taste, with a medium dry bitterness to follow. Some sourness. Quite full-bodied with a chewy texture, average carbonation and a lingering oaky finish. Overall impression is a bog-standard ale improved modestly by barrel aging (or similar). Not bad.

Scopey (10641) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle from Asda Bridge of Don. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is sweet, biscuit, grainy, light vanilla, white sugar, honey and some earth. The taste is sweet, sugary, white bread, earth, toasty grain, cereal, sweet whisky twang and honey with a dryish finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. I wasn’t expecting much and that’s what I got. Pretty sweet and not depth whatsoever. I would choose I&G over this. For real.

Reconqvista (339) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 7, 2015
Light oragen color with a consistent head. Smoked and wooden notes. Surprising citrus flavor with not much body.
