11.2 oz bottle.
Mild but clear oak and whisky notes in the nose. The flavor is not as good but carries a lasting aftertaste of the whisky barrel.
Clear brown body with a very good head. (187 characters)

The flavor presents the whiskey upfront with an Old Ale like maltiness. I get caramel and toffee malt, raisin, oak, char and barley. This is all presented in a very light package. (180 characters)

From the clear 11.2 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on January 19, 2015.

It is highly attractive to look at with its yellow to light amber pour and big, cream colored head. The head fades with little lacing.

Alas, the clear bottle resulted in skunkiness or me. That overpowers the vague biscuit malt and mild hop characters. Not much in the way of wood or whiskey.

Medium body.

The taste seems to bring out a little more wooden musky cellar characters with those malts but nothing is really in my face. Mild finish. Maybe it is supposed to be mellow. If so, they succeeded. I think I wanted more punch. (603 characters)

Shiny copper with no carbonation and a half finger of off white head.

Malt, whisky, skunk, oak barrel reminding me of a good Cantillon lambic, dusty cellar, a hint of fruitiness, dirty potato, a creaminess as well.

A hit of sweet malt, then the oak aging comes through, woody, a fruity almost peach quality, cellar, no sourness in spite of what the nose brought to my mind, vanilla. I get tomato as well, strange as it sounds.

Light body, little carbonation, not super dry.

Loving the oak barrel qualities, and overall its an excellent brew. Skunk on the nose is unfortunate, but hey it’s a clear bottle. Drank in Chiang Mai June 19th, 2015. (649 characters)

Totally got taken in by the labelling on this one. The first bottle I drank was okay, but since I had to buy a 4 pack, my disappointment for this beer carried over and exacerbated itself over the course of the next 3 bottles. Not nearly as rich or "Scottish" a beer as I was hoping for. (Not sure how it could have been more Scottish, but I can tell you for certain that it wasn't.)

Thin texture, like a weak soda, and a clear amber color would make this appear outwardly like any vienna lager. The whiskey flavor is definitely there in the smell and taste, but it's rather thin and one-dimensional and what it really reminds me of is when I'd drop half a shot of Johnny Walker into a Yuengling to "power it up" back in my college drinking days. That said, the whiskey flavor and oak aging does present itself wistfully, if weakly, and while I'll probably avoid this one in the future, it made for a palatable drink. (922 characters)
