COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, Filtered, Occasional;
Yet another addition to the 1488 range - designed to reflect the original character of the beer which was once produced at the brewery sited here. Tullibardine 1488 Ales are distinctive, their characteristic traits beautifully balanced by a depth and complexity so closely associated with Tullibardine Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. This truly remarkable Ale is best drunk chilled, perhaps being chased by a dram of your favourite Tullibardine Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

Pours deep amber with a reddish hue like brandy. Great aroma Caramel, malty, very sweet, some wood and vanilla. Oak. it is very nice on the nose. Flavour is nice very nice malty, strong flavour. Very spicy and woody. Very malty, caramel flavours. This is a very nice beer. I love the Tullabardine scotch and now I must say I love their beer. It really tastes like tullabardine.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2010
Smells like a cask, more of wine than anything else. Clear and red, very nice, doesnít really look like beer. Hardly any head on pour, less lacing in the goblet. Sweet and wine-like, not foamy at all, a bit of yeast flavour but it finishes with the barrell flavour. Quite a nice flavour, though the flatness isnít something Iím used to yet.

VertBaconStrips (2083) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 19, 2009
A very dark amber, very little head - meh. Caramel, sweet, dusty grain, bread crusts, not much else. That was pretty disappointing for aroma but not a bad smell. The taste is sweet, lots of English hops, a touch sour, caramel, some oak - so so. Smooth feel with good bitterness. Looks like my money will go elsewhere next time.

DuffMan (6752) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear chestnut brown with a golden head. Aroma is is toffee with lots of buttery oak. Sweet caramel flavour, again with big oaky flavours imparting butter and vanilla, faint fruit and nut elements are here too. Pretty thin though, with a slightly papery finish. Just OK for me.

Cirrhosis (1209) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2009
Bla bla brown clear body with an ugly boring rocky cap. Iív once again been told what Iím smelling is Pete and some vanilla and chocolate. Smooth chocolaty taste with ash. So very thick feeling. Oak and tons of malt and more of that pete flavor keeps coming through. Meh good enough I guess.
