look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 3.5

I love the appearance it just looks like a great beer! The smell is not to my liking and smells to me like a cheaper beer of which this wasn't that inexpensive. Almost smells like PBR. The feel/ finish of the beer is my favorite part. It ends with a beautiful honey taste and leaves the tongue feeling like it was just covered in a thin layer of honey. This made this beer very appealing to me. It may not sound appealing and I would agree but it actually was a good part of this beer. taste whys I honestly cannot tell if I like this beer. It is a difficult decision. It's a bit of a heavier beer so definitely not a session beer. Again, the taste is so hard to tell, the first pat of the sip isn't the best but then it gets sweeter and turns to honey. Totally unique and different from any other beer I've had. I do like. Would I buy it again? Maybe, hard to say. maybe would get it again on a cold night where I just want to sit and rest.

Grabbed a mixed 4 pack of Innis and Gunn beers, because, well, I am Scottish so what the hell. Good looking beer with an, I guess interesting smell. Not sure what to make of it. Taste is similar, not exactly what I expected from a scotch ale, but tasty. Overall, a pretty good beer but not one I will revisit regularly due to cost, plenty of better beers for less.
