inbirraveritas (1611) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 24, 2011
0.33 l bottle from "Sörspecialista", Bp.
Clear copper brown colour with a laceing and filmy remaining, off-white head and lively/fizzy carbo.
Smells sweet-sourish with some toffee.
Tasteing begins with a medium to thin mouthfeel and the sweet-sourish, clear aroma brings caramel, nuts and citrus along.
The metallic and citric finish is escorted by nuts, which leaves at last a sweet-spicy aftertaste behind.
Adequately balanced, rather average one. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2011

Clear gold body with a thin white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Sweet aroma...caramel and just a touch of smoke. Medium mouthfeel, nothing too exciting. The flavor is okay. Sweet...corn and caramel. Really no smoke. Just a minor bite at the end. Meh. anders37 (26878) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2010

Candied apple notes, malt influence but really lacking in any whisky personality. Very dusty mouth feel. Brandman (2963) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2010
