COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Reilly’s Oak Whiskey Red gets its distinguished flavor from aging in Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrels for up to one year. The aroma of bourbon jumps out at you, followed by delicate toffee. The flavor is rich and complex, with slight vanilla, oak and caramel. This medium bodied ale has a lovely pale ruby color and creamy, off-white head. The finish is clean with a slight warming sensation.

Sampled at GABF. Pours a translucent, brick red with some off white head. Malty aroma, whiskey, vanilla. Flavor is watered down vanilla, malt, caramel. Watery, thin finish. Wanted more.

Bif (2393) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2012
Bottle- Pours a hazy dark amber color with a large tan head that fades to nice lacing. Has the smell of dark fruit sweetness, bit of caramel and a whiskey aroma in the background. Initial tart bite with a sweet whiskey stickiness. There is bitterness throughout with a fairly dry finish. Fairly medium body, smooth but with a boozy feel and aftertaste. Interesting take on an Irish style ale, but didn’t really enjoy.

Pours a nice red/brown. Bourbon aroma and taste is not overpowering which is pleasant. There is a nice toffee taste followed by the bourbon warmth.

It poured a hazy dark reddish color with a small head. The aroma was of bourbon, vanilla, oak, fruits and some caramel. The flavor was of caramel, oak, light bourbon, light fruits and light vanilla with a crisp lingering bittersweet finish. A very decent Irish Ale.

chibuck (3521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2011
bottle... medium brown with a some amber, murky, light tan head forms a ring... the aroma is light, thought it would be much stronger, a whisper of bourbon is nice and smooth, generic toffe on the finish, nothing bad, just too light and boring... this beer is just off, seems slightly infected with a tart bitter note, flat but a terrible mouthfeel, mostly rye, no bourbon, just not a good combo

This beer has some odd tastes that don’t work for me. It is sweet and nutty with oak and sour/tart flavors.

dwaggs2 (1298) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle. Poured a darker reddish amber color with a very small tan head that was gone shortly after the pour. Aroma was oak, vanilla, and whiskey. Smelled real good, then I took the first drink. Meaty, fruits, flavors just didn’t go. Whiskey wasn’t really there, very thin. Below average. And Irish Ale for the style? I don’t think so. Below average.

2.6
esjaygee (3902) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Hazy reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of whiskey, grains, caramel and mild bready malt. Taste is a bit rough, doesn’t come across too well. Sour whiskey, caramel, light vanilla and oak and notes of fruit. Meh.
