Innis & Gunn Lager BeerInnis & Gunn Lager Beer
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Innis & Gunn
Scotland, United Kingdom
innisandgunn.com

Style: Euro Pale Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Lager is made in small batches with Naked Golden Oats and great Scottish pride and exuberance, which give it its full flavour and very smooth finish.

Unusually, as well as our own, unique Lager malt, we have added some Naked Golden Oats to the brew, which impart a satisfying smoothness to the finish.

Naked Golden Oats are grown without husks so that even more goodness and flavour can be extracted during brewing.

Pale straw colour with a good head. Light body with oats for smoothness. Nice crisp finish begs for another sip.

500mL can from LCBO. Chilled. Poured into a standard lager glass.

Look: Clear, golden, lots of dancing carbonation. 1cm frothy head that dissipates quickly.

Smell: Light, bready, malty. Slight sourness. Slight metallic/mineral quality.

Taste: Crisp. Sweet on the tongue, very light, almost watery. Grains and malt give way to a slightly metallic finish, and a pleasing, slightly bitter floral aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium mouthfeel. Smooth. Amount of carbonation is pleasing.

Overall: A pleasant, light tasting, very drinkable lager. Very different than the normal offerings from Innis & Gunn

Pours bright, golden. Minimal head that fades quick.

slight grainy sweet smell, little to no hops

inoffensive grainy taste, slight slickness in the mouthfeel, mild bitterness, mild dryness

It's ok and probably one of the better I&G beers
