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.

From a 500ml can served straight from the fridge at 9 degrees Celsius into a pilsner glass. Best before april 2018.

Look: The beer pours a brilliant pale gold with 3cm of white, frothy head that settles into a craggy cap in 2+ minutes. No lacing and overall poor head.

Smell: Faint and leaning towards sweet. Some earthy and spicy noble hop aroma along with biscuity pale malts.

Taste: Follows the aroma with mild intensity and sweet balance. Faint hops and pale malts with an adjunct quality. The finish is short, faint, and leaning towards bitter with some minerality.

Feel: Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Crisp and smooth with no apparent alcohol.

Overall: Clean, refreshing, and thirst-quenching. Innis & Gunn lager is simple and to style but lacks life.

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