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.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 7, 2006
Draft @ brewpub: Fiery red pour with a small, diminishing head. A light whiskey note is evident in both the nose and body, adding an interesting element to the brew. The body also shows notes of wine, molasses, caramel, nut and toasted malts. I wish the body was a little more full, and these flavors were combined a bit more. This shows quite a bit of promise.

Dogbrick (7669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2010 Sample at the Beer ’N Rock Band tasting on 08/27/2010: The beer is a clear reddish-amber color with a thick and fluffy beige head that burns away slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Caramel malt aroma with a bit of oak. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt and caramel, mild hops and a hint of bourbon. The finish is malty with a lingering sweetness left over. Decent beer overall.

TAR (2445) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Draft: Brick red. Dense and sticky off-white cream. Pineapple and bready malt aromas with hints of whiskey, vanilla and caramel. Silky and creamy on the palate, but fairly watery. Slickly fruity esters soften the wood-derived tannins which lightly skim the palate. Bready malts abound, but fail to contribute any textural weight. Bright and succulent hop elements outweigh what little brashness exudes. Plums and bright peach acidity complement the tannins and underline the dainty vanilla sweetness. Vibrant malts prolong the brief but effective caramelized wood sensations. Finishes softly and well-rounded with pulpy peach notes and a balancing kiss of nutty malts. Suffers a bit due to the thinness, but this is delightfully understated, cohesive and well-crafted.

JaBier (4834) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle shared by Dogbrick. Clear red pour with a huge tan head. Caramel malt nose with a hint of cherry along with some oaky vanilla. Flavor starts with oaky vanilla, then becomes fruit before a bit of hop at the end. Aside from a thin and weak finish, pretty solid brew.

Pours hazy red with a foamy beige head. Roast malt aroma. Flavor is very oaky, perhaps a bit bourbon, and there is a roast malt with a touch of chocolate. Moderately bitter finish.

Seasonal just put on at brewery’s tasting room. Sour mash bourbon so getting that sourness from the abrrel. A hoppy red. Not a bad one.
