4.03/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

11.2oz. bottle poured into a snifter/chalice

A- A clear deep gold/amber with a finger of off-white head. Dissipates quickly. Some nice lacing as well down the glass.

S- straightforward grains, with hints of oak and vanilla.

T- The taste is so much better than the smell. A really nice pale malt bill is enhanced a great deal by the oak, vanilla, and a very subtle sweetness. Very nice, and downright delicious.

M- Smoother, and creamier that I would have imagined. A bit dry on the finish, but we're not talking IPA dry here. Light to medium carbonation.

O- The average appearance and smell hid what lay underneath. I'm looking forward to trying the various offerings of Innis & Gunn

3.81/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Bottle BBE Mar 15 at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of sweet malt and caramel
Head large (5.5 cm), white, creamy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing good – reticulum of small bubbles
Body orange, clear
Flavor is sweet with hints of diacetyl and vanillin; no alcohol, no hops. No peatyness. Ends quickly with a flavorless sweetness.
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation.
This is a pleasant Scottish ale – not too sweet, not too malty. The vanillin and diacetyl are both subdued and add a nice subtext to the typical maltiness of a Scottish ale.
