jodah52 (210) - Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2010
This is a lightish lager is designed to display the qualities of the malt used. Unfortunately, though mildly interesting, the malt is nothing to write home about. It has a a slightly drier texture and grainier aroma than non-whisky malts; thats about how far it goes. Past that, its a decent czech/german style light lager with a hefty price tag. Try a bottle if youre curious what whisky malt is about, then let it rest forevermore.

[email protected] Cafe Wallingatan, Stockholm. Reddish ambery brown colour with mediumsized off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts along with some fudge and mild berryish and smoked wet wooden notes. Flavour is quite much the same. A very mildly smoked beer...

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - MAR 18, 2010
Birra piuttosto dolce, aroma dominato dai malti, poca sensazione di torbato, non molto diversa da una bock un po robusta (ma non robusta in alcool: troppo leggera per la sua dolcezza. Not sure the new recipe was a good idea).

Lunkie (1850) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - MAR 6, 2010
Smoky malt aroma. Clear red brown colour with good head and lacing. Malt hop flavour. Fizzy palate.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - FEB 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear, light amber beer with a weak offwhite head. The aroma is malt, sweetness and toffee. The flavor follows the nose closely. The palate is thin. Overall this beer is below average.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber body with a white head. Grainy bread y malt body some cracker malts and some light woody tones. Bread crust, toast, with a light metallic tone. Not much of a smoke if you ask me.

Dedollewaitor (15724) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2010
Bottle @ Odense Tasting. From Flensburg. Pours clear golden with a smalll off white head. Sweet malts, caramel, bread and a whiff of corn and grain. Medium bodied. Amazingly boring. Clean

Davros (2930) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2010
Pours amber with a dismal head. Smells like Heineken - loads of grassy Euro hops. Too grassy, almost skunky. No smoke whatsoever, although there is a woody note, almost peaty. Same story with the taste, this could pass as a grassy, pale lager. The only interesting point is that same faint woody hint. Very watery, too much carbonation.
