COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light and fruity beer with notes of candied apple and marzipan. The combination of biscuit malt and citrus hops tingle the palate only diminishing after the first sip to allow the signature Innis & Gunn vanilla and oak notes to shine through. Because of this combination of Scottish malted barley and mouth-watering zesty American hops, ‘Independence Day’ beer is a great partner to BBQ dishes.

Clear amber beer. Big fluffy cream coloured head. Smooth start to the palate but it turns crispy. Light and airy as well. Sweet vanilla oak and coconut cream. Whisper of bubblegum. Finishes crispy. Nice enough but really needs something else going on.

bhensonb (11248) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Bottle from Half Time. Pours clear copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is a bit bready with notes of light fruit, and maybe vanilla. Med body. Flavor is rather bready in a slight roast caramel way, and there’s certainly vanilla - maybe even a touch of oak astringency. Seems rather fruity. Not exactly dry finish, but close enough. I like it.
