Bottle shared by Paul at tasting at my house. Pours gold with off white head - very small. Nose/taste of smoked apple juice, smoked apple candy and light peat. Taste is watery with smoked apple. Lighter bodied.

Bottle from supermarket. Not unforgettable but still kind of a funny beer...

330ml bottle into tulip. Courtesy of Bitterlady (bought in some supermarket in Noumea). Smells like creek water, earth, grass, and smoky peat. Lightly carbonated bronze beer with a bit of scummy foam on top. Flat and sweet, doesn’t taste of much. But the palate! Plastic sweet scotch whisky cordial is the closest I can get to describe it. And it lingers. I think this is what a burnt plastic bag tastes like. Weird, really weird.

From old tasting notes. Bright amber, red color. Brief beige head. Perfumy sweet smoked malt aroma. Intensely sweet, smoky mesquite malt flavor. Brief sweet malt finish.

Pas fan du principe de base de parfumer telle ou telle bière avec des saveurs d’un autre alcool, mais pour une fois l’ensemble fonctionne pas mal !

sonotono (266) - torino, ITALY - JAN 5, 2017
Ambrata chiara, schiuma fine e abbondante. Nella ricetta ci sono coloranti artificiali, che tristezza... Odore cereali, leggero erbaceo, sapore dolce, dolcissimo, stucchevole. Amaro non pervenuto.

VDuquerroux (1717) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - OCT 28, 2016
Bottle, 33cL. A golden orange sparkling clear beer with a medium white head ; ok retention. Smoke, sugar, roast, light caramel. Medium sugary sweet, round, light dry refreshing. Light to medium body, thin texture, light syrupy, average carbonation, sweet smoky dry finish. Overall, average. Not so bad, actually.

Piw (1153) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2016
500ml Dose. Golden und opalisierend mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Leichte Whiskysroma. Süß. Pappig.

nathanvc (537) - Brugge, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2016
Bottle from an Esselunga supermarket in Lucca. Pours clear amber/orange with a small off-white head. The aroma contains malts, peat, smoke, whisky overall, but also some caramel and sugar. It tastes medium to heavy sweet. Oily texture and soft carbonation. Good try but way too sweet and uniform.

PintjeFritz (357) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2016
No detail information about the malts, hops and drinktemperature on the can. Clear amber beer with a short cream-colored head, thin texture, light body, very sweet, malty, caramel, finish is long and malty sweet, more malt drink than a Scotch Ale (I have 0.5l bottle with best-before 06/2017 16:12 L6 181F)

djoeye (4615) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2016
Aroma; malt,caramel, roasted malts, grass, berries, notes of whisky. Look; clear amber body, off white head. Taste; malts, dark caramels, roasted malts with whiskey notes, grassy smooth mild hops - leading to a malty finish. Feel; smooth, fine, good body. Overall; nice.
