Innis And Gunn "Original"
Innis And Gunn - Edinburgh, Scotland
Scottish Ale (ABV 6.6%)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a clear golden honey with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a thin film with a small collar and had excellent streaky lacing.

The aroma was lightly sweet with a caramel malt, light herbal hops and a sweet moldy yeast with notes of toffee, vanilla and a bit of oak cask.

The taste was rather malty with a nice toffee sweetness throughout, with the finish being lightly bitter-sweet with a touch of vanilla and a slight oaky finish. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow with a light sweet woody taste left behind.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall a nice lightly sweet Ale with a great drinkability, basically this is a good sipping brew...
