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.

Bottle shared. Clear golden with a very small off white head. Aroma of light whiskey, oak, light fruits, malt and toffee. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

ALIBALI (2122) - Kiel, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2017
Stilbedingt sicherlich fast unmöglich einen echt intensiven Geschmackskracher zu brauen. Hierfür ist, dieser nach Vanille und Aprikose duftende, Sud allerdings erstaunlich gut gelungen. Fassreifung erfolgreich!!! Die fügt dem erstaunlich honigmalzsüßen Wohlfühltrunk noch eine enorme und immer unaufdringliche Holznote hinzu. Toll & gentlemanlike. Passend zur wunderschön etikettierten Flasche. Pappanhänger selbstverständlich 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, für schlappe 6,50€. Immer noch zu teuer....

jvhemert (399) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 18, 2016
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 (1159) - Grenoble, FRANCE - SEP 10, 2016
Orangée 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 gorgées, elle prend de l’ampleur au fur et a mesure de la degustation et les notes de noix et de whisky sur la finale rehausse la sensation genearale

weark (795) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - AUG 19, 2016
Bouteille achetée Au Grain D’Orge - De couleur dorée limpide avec une fine mousse blanchee qui dure - Au nez beaucoup de fût, vanille, toffee, whisky, légèrement fumée, quelque notes de sherry, le fût donne beaucoup la bière pas grand chose - En bouche pareille beaucoup de fût et peu de bière, le sherry prend le dessus et apporte un côté fruité et cerise, la vanille est toujours présente la bière est croustillante et épicée- Corp léger, amertume légère, carbonation correct, crispy, final vanille cherry assez longue - j’aime beaucoup mais la bière rst trop discrette, le fut apporte tout

Idiosynkrasie (7539) - 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.

Mishnok (308) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2016
From 330 ml bottle. Honey like aroma with Amber colour and smooth body. Very nice drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle from LCBO. 6.1% alc./vol. Pours a clear deep golden Amber colour with a small outer ring head. Aroma of caramel, apples, and whiskey. Taste matches the aroma. Light body with low carbonation.
