COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
bottle, special
Orach Slie (or Golden Nectar) is a variant of Schiehallion Craft Lager matured in casks from the multi-award-winning, family-owned Glenfarclas Distillery. In contrast to the punchy, dark Ola Dubhs aged in casks from the wild isles of Orkney, Orach Slie is a much lighter, easy-going beer that reflects the softer, sweeter malts of Glenfarclas which nestles in the rolling Speyside moors of Banffshire. Having trialled a variety of different beers, the brewers settled on a lightly-hopped, high-abv version of Schiehallion to perfectly complement the classic, honeyed-sherry malts of Glenfarclas.
Orach Slie pours a light straw colour and immediately displays a delicate malty character on the nose. It has a surprisingly robust, chewy mouthfeel that belies its light appearance, coating the palate with gentle-sweetness which in turn gives way to a pleasantly-bitter, drying (and slightly tangy) finish.

ALIBALI (1109) - Kiel, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2017
Stilbedingt sicherlich fast unmglich einen echt intensiven Geschmackskracher zu brauen. Hierfr ist, dieser nach Vanille und Aprikose duftende, Sud allerdings erstaunlich gut gelungen. Fassreifung erfolgreich!!! Die fgt dem erstaunlich honigmalzsen Wohlfhltrunk noch eine enorme und immer unaufdringliche Holznote hinzu. Toll & gentlemanlike. Passend zur wunderschn etikettierten Flasche. Pappanhnger selbstverstndlich inklusive. Das alles rechtfertigt trotzdem nicht den Preis der 0,33l Flasche. 10 soll sie normal kosten!!! Ich erstand meine kurz vor Ablauf des MHD beim BEERGIUM Onlinestore, fr schlappe 6,50. Immer noch zu teuer....

AROMA: cereal, honey, citrus, orange peel APPEARANCE: clear, golden, minimal head, white foam, TASTE: medium sweetness, lightly bitter, PALATE: light body, thin feel, lively, long whisky finish OVERALL: good balance of whisky and beer aroma given the lighter lager beer; bit too much sickly sweet going on.

Bozo_skeleton (1070) - Grenoble, FRANCE - SEP 10, 2016
Orange sombre et trouble, peu de carbo, pas de collet. Aromes Orange, bois, noisettes et whysky, pas tres intense mais tres agreable. Tres mince, on est plus sur ls saveurs de cereales. Si elle est un peu decevante sur les premieres gorges, elle prend de lampleur au fur et a mesure de la degustation et les notes de noix et de whisky sur la finale rehausse la sensation genearale

Idiosynkrasie (6864) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2016
330ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, amber colour with small, thick, creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Nuttily malty and fruity hoppy aroma, notes of apple and yellow berries, underlying hints of sherry, a very mild touch of liquorice. Taste is minimally sweet malty, a touch of honey, pear and yellow apple; smooth and soft palate.

Cervesa suau, destaquen els tocs a caramel i a galeta, a mida que sescalfa guanya protagonisme la vainilla i el fum. Cerveza suave, destacan los toques a caramelo y a galleta, a medida que se calienta gana protagonismo la vainilla y el humo.
