Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Real nice orange amber, glowing and very bright colored body and clear. Very creamy three finger head made with a nice light retention. Settles to a foamy puck, quite nice looking.

Yup, there is trouble here folks on first opening. This brew is skunked. Rubber and faint hints of toffee softness are in the background. A little bit of lemon strangely, but the brew is definitely not pleasant.

Very mild toffee aromas, on the palate, and a mild cream but extremely muted. Very light lemon character on this almost like a soda. Extremely light palate but also quite flat. Light sugar toffee like tasting, and a little flat carbonation. Has a taste of flat cola (which ironically I always enjoyed as a kid).

Still, it's a compromised product, and it gets scored as such because it's totally preventable if they used better bottles or packaging. Won't be buying anymore Innis & Gunn till they fix this.

It had a nice oak flavor to it, but the problem was that this oak flavor was largely masked by a distinct toffee taste. If you are a toffee lover than this might be an amazing beer. I certainly am not one of those people. I didn't really enjoy it, and it was wasn't cheap even for craft beer. I won't be buying more.

Smells and tastes like a Dewars Lager blend. Not bad if these are the tastes you're looking for. Good oak smell amongst the scotch smell.

Poured from a bottle into a perfect pint glass. My wife once again says the beer was very pretty , but thats where it all ends. Not much head at all and very little if any lacing. The smell was just a whiskey smell which I guess is to be expected and the taste is like a beer that someone has poured cheap whiskey into. Im not a whiskey fan and I would not have tried this even but a buddy bought it and left it in my fridge and it was taking up space , and well you cant have space taken up in the fridge , I took about 3 drinks then had an accident and spilled it into the sink ,I would never break man rule #43434 and waste a beer, blah never again
