Vignale (3590) - Malm, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2011
Amber coloured with low offwhite head. Little toffee and buttery flowers on the nose. The 7% are well hidden which usually is a good thing, but the to sweet caramelbody is rather plain. A little hint of EKG-like hops with flowerlike scents but almost no bitterness at all. Small resembles of lowland whiskey and a little vanilla, but to sum up, a beer soon forgotten.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Not my cup of tea. Reminds me a little bit of a sweet, vanilla toffee apple. Meh

500 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with light head. Aromas of light smoke, wood, and light malts. Flavors of very watery smoky scotch and fruit. Not sure what this is but its easy to quaff.

tomer (3357) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle, smallush quickly dissapearing bubbly head, crystal clear very deep gold colour, dominant malty flavour with some fruity notes, biscuity fruity flavour with an alcoholic whiskey presence, light bitterness and quite sweet. True to the style but much too sweet.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Pours a clear golden color with a small, foamy, off-white layer of foam. A gathering of clear bubbles forms at the edge. Scattered, micro-spot lacing marks the glass. The aroma shows sweet pale malts with hints of butter and graham cracker, with a toasted oak character and a very light touch of residual smokiness. Flavors show sweet whiskey malts, light toffee, and hints of corn. The whiskey character is very faint. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated, with a lightly syrupy mouthfeel. This looks, feels, and tastes like a golden ale aged in twice or thrice used whiskey barrels. It doesnt even come close to resembling a Scotch ale as I have come to define the style. Im not impressed.
