This poured a coppery liquid with an inch head that flattens pretty quickly. There is a citrus nose with maybe a bit of whisky barrel in the background. It's very subtle and hard to pick out. The flavour has a bit grain with slight fruit in the finish, maybe apricot. Like the nose the whisky barrel is very subtle. I took a big swig and held it in my mouth, the carbonation was active the whole time.

L: Pleasant deep amber. Upon pouring into a cooled tulip glass, the foam built up quickly, then collapsed equally suddenly.
S: The irony smell of lager, with a light wooden je-ne-sais-quoi in the background.
T: Well, it tastes like a decent Vienna lager. Nothing less, nothing more.
F: Crispy mouthfeel of a good-quality lager, a tad too metallic for my taste. Carbonation is rather high. I half expected barrelling would have created a smoother, more silky beer.
O: Don't get me wrong, this is a pleasant beer. I can imagine me drinking this sitting in an Australian caffee, a pretzel at the side. However, I was promised (and had payed for) something special, a whiff of the Scottish Highlands, a whisky malt red beer, aged for two months, preferably in ancient oak barrels. Not really sure if that was what I got.

Amber copper color with a one finger head with medium retention.
Malty aroma with floral hops. Hints of peat, but not that smoked.
Likewise, predominant sweet malty flavor finishing with a mild smoky peat. Hints of apples and earthy and herbal hops. Mildly dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with good carbonation.
Interesting malty beer with nice twist on using Whiskey malt, this by the way worked well. Assertive and not complex, which is nice so you can better isolate its particular malt? Worth trying.
