BEER INFO

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

Style: Scottish Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is our firstborn brew, whose accidental discovery started our story in 2003. Its originality also lies in its singular taste – notes of biscuity malt and vanilla swirling within a creamy, mellow character.

A pioneering beer, its flavour finds favour with brewing juries, blind tasting panels and barflies alike.

500ml can poured into a pint glass. ABV 6.6%.

A - Poured a clear copper orange with a 1cm white head, head reduced to surface bubbles, no lacing.

S - Upfront is the vanilla, then oak, hint cherries, caramel.

T - Sweet, caramel, vanilla, hint of something fruity, oak, low hop bitterness in the finish.

M - Medium-low carbonation, medium-heavy body, smooth, sticky, mostly crisp finish.

O - The Innis & Gunn Original has nice barrel aging flavors but I find it could use a bit more hops. Otherwise it's an easy drinking brew with an ABV that's surprisingly well hidden.
