Vignale (3413) - 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.

SinH4 (3404) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2015
Cloudy golden-orange color with small white head. Aroma is bitter caramel, butterscotch and toffee. Taste is slight caramel, some earthy old world hops and toffee. Quite sweet and a bit honey. Feels light. Low carbonation. Not too harmonious and a bit weak, although quite drinkable. Combined with food, a ridiculous booziness evolves.

gegwilson (3400) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle from a Glasgow ASDA. Pours golden with a thin white head. The taste is fairly fruity citrus with smokey whiskey notes. Theres a fairly unpleasant dry after taste. Not good.

330ml green bottle. Golden coloured, small white head. Sweet and malty nose with a slight whisky character. Flavour is sweet malts, toffee, noticable whisky, some woody notes. Finish was lingering whisky, some caramel malt. Medium body.

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.

Bottle. Golden colour. Not really my favourite, but better than other whisky beers.

Lowenbrau (3285) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 2, 2013
330ml bottle. Wood, malty aromas. Pours hazy light amber, with white head, vanishing, no lacing. Light to medium body. Taste is malty, wood, vanilla, whisky, not very well balanced.

Gerbeer (3259) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
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.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 17, 2013
Flaske, 50 cl, tak Ole . Kobberfarvet og klar, lille hovede. Whiskey? Sd maltsuppe uden ret meget duft og nsten endnu mindre krop. Stor skuffelse.

tomer (3211) - 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.
