Bouteille 330 ml. 6.0%. Couleur jaune cuivrée, mousse blanche mince. Arpome de céréales, un peu de bois et vanille vers la fin. En bouche, douce, malt, un peu de bois, légère amertume un peu fruitée. Bonne blonde, un peu sucrée.

I bought this out of curiosity, pleasant surprise! Very buttery smooth taste, fixed with caramel. A definite buy again!

One thing perplexes me when it comes to this brewer, its use of clear bottles. Whenever I drink one of their beers, I’m always wondering if this tastes as it should, or has it changed because of Sunligh, neonlight in the shops or so on. Anyhow, this is quite sweet, it pours over the tongue smoothly like velvet (as always with Innis) and has a perplexing taste of vanilla and oak. They are an odd bunch these beers, and I’m always unsure about them, but they do add to ones life these little wonders.

Russo (1693) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAR 21, 2014
Golden color with small white head. Aroma is malty and sweet. Flavor is like aroma with notes of caramel and vanilla. Low carbonation and light body with a slightly bitter finish.

jjsint (926) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours blonde (quelle surprise) with little head and medium carbonation. Smell is of bananas and plastic bags. Taste is a bit acrid and sweet/sour. Odd little aftertaste. Just doesn’t work for me as a package, which is a shame as I had high(er) hopes for this.

allmyvinyl (4247) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2013
330ml bottle at home. Clear golden pour, no head. Aromas of vanilla, green apples and butterscotch. Taste has more of the same, and a fairly cloying sweetness. Gets worse as you go.
