2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Nose is mild, with vanilla being the bearing element along with hints of caramel malts.Taste is equally light, with vanilla, caramel and sweet pale malts. A discreet hop bitterness rounds it all off. Not too exiting, the Blonde is kinda like a more mellow, watered-down version of the original Innis & Gunn. Drinkable and an ok summer/session beer, I suppose, but otherwise a bit boring.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light orange pour. Strong vanilla and honey aroma with some oak. A strong vanilla sweet taste that an IPA lover would not like.

Poors with light to no head. Cloudy appearance. Light smells (almost a skunky smell). Taste is great. Feel almost a velvet finish. Will drink again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dec 2012 - some of the same flavours as the original - buttery oakiness. But a milder beer with less flavour and less sharpness than the others. It’s OK and more interesting than most beers that you can find in a supermarket.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear golden orange color with a white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of vanilla, oak, fruity esthers, toffee and butterscotch. Taste is sweet toffee, oak, some clove and a bit of a harsh burnt sugar taste with some lingering bitterness. Not the best offering from Innis.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Slightly unclear yellow orange golden color with a small to medium sized white head that diminishes quickly. Smell malts, toffee. Taste is weird, can’t describe it but I don’t like it, especially the aftertaste. Low to medium body, low carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into pint glass straight from fridge. Golden, burnt sugar colour. Clear with decent carbonation leading to ’one finger’ head which quite quickly disappears. Vanilla sweet, slight alcohol taste, whisky or rum? Ends quite savoury. Pretty complex compared to other I&G beers. Would probably go well with slightly spicy food.
