COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Reilly’s Oak Whiskey Red gets its distinguished flavor from aging in Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrels for up to one year. The aroma of bourbon jumps out at you, followed by delicate toffee. The flavor is rich and complex, with slight vanilla, oak and caramel. This medium bodied ale has a lovely pale ruby color and creamy, off-white head. The finish is clean with a slight warming sensation.

Awards: Gold Medal GABF 07’

Poured brown with reddish tint and a huge head. Aroma was bourbon with malty and grainy notes. The flavor was woody, oxidized, dry and slightly malty with warming alcohol. The flavors are enhanced as the beer warms. The palate is very smooth and fizzy. Overall this is a decent beer with a good presentation and the mellow flavors really intensify as the beer warms.

Bottle, your fucking kidding me this won GOLD in GABF07 Barrel Aged beers! What the fuck was the competition? Oak aged woodchuck?!?! Pours an amber red body with a tan head. A thin watery oak vanilla and light bourbon body with over ripe fruit and a bitter finish. Eh its okay but undeserving of its accomplishments...

Headbanger (3051) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2009
12oz bottle Label says Reilly’s Oak Whiskey Red 5/27/09 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bourbon, oak, and vanilla. Taste of oak, vanilla, little sourness, and slight bourbon. This light bodied brew is not bad wish it had more bourbon and it is not very well balanced. Not bad.

Rusty (1533) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Bottle courtesy of santa. Pours a nice reddish brown with a small off white head. Aroma is caramel, wood, malt and a touch of whiskey. Flavor is caramel, wood, a light sourness, a touch of whiskey. Fairly light bodied for a barrel aged ale but the sourness and whiskey gives it a nice tang. Different than I expected but still quite enjoyable.

RSRIZZO (1847) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Color is a deep amber with a slight haze and a very fine sediment. Carbonation is good producing a small tight head. Aroma of coffee and oak with a hint of whiskey in the back. Taste is rich and caramely. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a rich creamy feel. Finish come in sweet with caramel and vanilla then a light hop flavor and mild bitterness. After taste has a slight oak/whiskey flavor rolling across. This is a tasty brew with a full well rounded flavor.
