"Whisky Beer"
A superb balanced beer with ’smokey’ overtones from peated malt. With a measure of English Whisky from St. George’s Distillery in Norfolk, it is rich in flavour.

pootzboy's rating

500ml bottle - decants a lightly hazed honey-gold ale with a small bit sticky cap that lasts modeately and laces the glass. Aroma is smokey-musty with grainy undertones - like a Bamberg rauchbier but more restrained. Meduim body, slick mouth feel. Ups front this ale has a wonderful 3way balance between the peat smoke, malt and resiny hops - nothing overpowers anything else, mid palate these 3 flavour form a dulcet amalgam mid palate - it then goes on to a fast finish with hop resins and light astringecy from the smoke riding just over the malt- lingering smokey bittering. All in all a very good smoked beer which is not too over powering to have 2 or so. But where this beer really shines is when paired up with sronger tasting cheeses and foods like blue cheese or old cheddar or mutton stew - first rate as a food pairing brew.

Light opaque yellow, white lacing foam head. Light smokey aroma, some smoke tones in taste. More oak dominated than whisky in taste and aftertaste. (Rotterdam 201702)

Bijl (593) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2017
Goudgeel, helder, heel weinig koolzuur, snel zakkende schuimkraag. Aroma: Graan en zoete mouten , iets gerookt, boter, brood/biscuit. Smaak: Behoorlijk gerookt, zoete pale mout, karamel, graan. De whisky krijg ik niet echt mee... alleen het rokerige als een turf gerookte whisky en iets oak.  De basis van dit bier is een zoetige Engelse Bitter.  Brood/biscuit en granig/boterig.  Geen hele goede dit! Lichte body, waterig en een rokerige bittere afdronk.

0.5 l bottle. Pours hazy, deep golden with no head. Something was off with this: it was watery, thin and lacked every aroma and taste.

Piw (1108) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2016
500ml Flasche. Klar und golden mit minimaler Schaumkrone. Komische Aromen. Bisschen Vanille, Gewürznelke und Kräuter. Bitter im Geschmack mit dünnem Körper.

PintjeFritz (323) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2016
Nice bottle but without any information about the malts, hops and drinktemperature. Clear amber beer with a very small cream-colored head, smell is light sweet and after vanilla, flat carbonation, thin texture, bitter, long finish and very bitter, (I have 0.5l bottle with best-before 20.07.2017)

Clear amber color. Medium carbonation. Lots of smoke, toffee, caramel, fruity British yeast character, little-to-no hop aroma. Has a bitter smokey flavor, malty start, but finishes completely dry. Has some fruity tones in there too. Can be a bit too harsh. I actually hated it on first taste, but it grew on me. Tastes like a good british bitter with some smoke added. Not bad.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
- helle bernsteingelbe Farbe mit geringer Schaumbildung - leicht würzige – aber leider etwas undefinierbare – Aromen - auch geschmacklich bleibt das Ganze irgendwie indifferent, nicht fassbar und ohne eigenen Charakter - auch der Abgang bleibt geschmacklich nicht fassbar und wassrig Fazit: Seltsames Gebräu

ERB92 (734) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2016
Aroma of caramel. malt,bread, grass and a hint of smoke and fruits. Amber with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Overall a nice ale with a plesant smokey finish.

Karstenborg (1044) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2016
Dark golden with a small white head. Aroma is malt, oak and bread. Taste is caramel, bread and malt

Fules (1186) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 1, 2016
Kicsi, gyorsan apadó, de vékonyan megmaradó hab, kissé homályos borostyán szín. Malátás, enyhén whisky-s illatok. Malátás alap, enyhe keserű, és minden egyebet elnyomó füstös-hordós, kissé olajos whisky íz. Utóíze a korty folytatása. Testes, kellemes ital.
