3.6/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

clear glass....do I need a glass? Yeah i guess so. Pours a watery looking light amber. no head. no action.

Aroma of a grolsch like lager and oak. Hint of whiskey.

Nice smooth oaky flavor but it still reminds me of a german/european lager. The whiskey is very present and surprisingly smooth.

Nice smoothness and a light [,lager like] flavor.

The ABV will sneak right up on you but this beer, although very easy to drink isn't a beer I want to keep drinking.

This is a really wonderful beer that according to the story was created by accident.

I usually pick up one of these 660mL bottles for $4.10 when i go beer shopping. Its a dark golden colour, the smell is really pungent and brilliant, leaves about a finger of head.

The flavour is marvelous, the oak flavour really comes through, they age it in barrels for 77 days. Its a very complex flavour, malty, fruity, oaky, with toffee and a sweetness too, without going too far in any one direction. At 6.6% ABV its definitely a sipper, but pairs well with a lot of food without fading away or dominating your palette too much.

I for one am very happy for this accident of a beer and glad that many others have enjoyed it as well and made it so widely available. Innis and Gunn have since expanded the brand and made many wonderful variations.
