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.

DuffMan (6146) - 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.

presario (4533) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2009
Surprised that this series of beers shows up in Canada and there is only 1 rating. 500ml bottle. Thin dark copper coloured with a mocerate off-white head. Sweet malt aroma, light hops and a hint of the barrel. Tastes like a bitter aged in peaty, oaky scotch barrels. Definate whisky notes. Could get accustomed to the woody flavour.
