50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Mild butterish and slight wooden dry aroma. Sweet malty flavoured with a distinct wooden touch. Not much whiskey flavours, but certainly wooden. Lasting sweet and malty finish. Lacks some depth to be really interesting.

Ungstrup (37208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a beige head. The aroma is primarily of whiskey, but also with a light touch of smoke as well as lemon. The flavor is of whiskey and citrus, leading to a dry end. The body is thin - which surprises me at 7% ABV.

Bottled (thanks GarethYoung). Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is whisky barrells, oaky and wooden notes as well as quite sweet. Flavour is sweet woodenness, alcohol and quite boring.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a clear, fully golden with a white head. Very distinct whisky aroma. Surprisingly light-bodied with lightly sweet malts and lovely smoked whisky accents and a touch of wood. Wauw - the ratings for this are really hit or miss. 210906

omhper (24956) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2007
Bottled. Pale brown, brief head. Fruity and alcoholi nose with wood and vanilla. Sweet and densely malty with lots of oaky whisky flavuor. Phenolic and fruity , vinous and warming. Low bitterness. Quite similar to the Innis & Gunn series, but more full of life.

Clear amber beer. Sweet malt nose with a whiff of whisky. Slightly dry palate. Sweet creamy malt with a trace of vanilla oak. The whisky comes through a little sour and with a trace of peat. Fresh and interesting. Mild orange hop at the end.

cgarvieuk (24150) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2007
Well first off im not a whisky fan, but this is a real interesting beer, Its a nice golden amber colour, with a distictive whisky aroma, the flavour is of a half decent whisky thats been diluted just a touch too much, but diluted with a light fruity carmel malt ale. There no doubt in my mind i would have scored this wonderfully interestign ale higher if i enjoyed whiskey.

Medium sweet flavor, ripe fruits, golden raisins, breads malts. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet, malty finish, toasty bread, caramel. Simple sugary beer.
