2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A 500 ml can from the LCBO
Read about this in the paper , thought why not, now I am just thinking why.
Nice enough lager , but nothing noteworthy.
Rather light , plain Jane ,but drinkable non the less.
Now who do I give the other can to ?

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Produces up a brilliant, honey gold with a soapy lather of white atop. Wheat grass, chaff and stale, leafy hops on the nose. Rather bland and drabby on the palate. Thin, light carbonation with cardboard malt and stale hops. Low bitterness. Uninspiring. (33cL, BBE 10/15, Luckies Liquor, East Vic. Park)

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Very ligh smell with some pale bread. Similar taste. This lacks the diacetyl that other I&G beers have. I’m guessing they didn’t use their wrecked oak aging on this beer. Drinkable but not very exciting.

070815. Bottle from Beer Cartel. Bright amber in colour with a soft white head. A good Fiday night beer that doesn’t take much thinking about. Light and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 l bottle from local supermarket. Pale lager colour, head dies quite quickly. Taste is, however, quite nice. Fruity carbonation combined with hoppy sweetness. If this did not made any sense, this was my last beer for today. Well, anyway, very smooth and refreshing as stated on the back label.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Maker: Inn is & Gunn (brewed at Wellpark (C&C Group), Edinburgh, Scotland ***
Beer: Inn is & Gunn Lager Beer (cask, at The Archibald Simpson, Aberdeen) ***
Style: Lager ***
ALC.VOL.: 4.6% ***
Colour: Bright golden yellow, clear, medium creamy head. ***
Nose: Floral hops, some citrus fruit. ***
Texture: Medium bodied, but full mouthed for a Lager, hardly watery. *** Moderate carbonation. ***
Taste: Some mild lemon, a bit buttery as well. Grain, but not wet plaster. Middle is slightly floral, with malty notes for balance. Modestly bitter finish of grains and a wee bit of citrus. Short aftertaste, of malts. ***
Impressions: A bit fuller in texture than most lagers, but other than that, the typical thirst quencher on a summer’s day - which this is. Good with grilled dishes, too bland on its own.

Ive had the brands other products, and have never been disappointed. This beer just missed the mark. Tastes a little harsh. Will buy when on sale. Thats it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
When I think of Scotland, "Lager" is not the first thing conjured up. In fact, it is a close second to "Ale". I jest. Aside from the too-low carbonation, this is actually a fairly enjoyable quench. Clear as a blonde belle but without a trace of lace. the earthy and mildly floral and spicy hop aroma in conjunction with a heather and honey scent is quite enticing. Perhaps thew fuller body comes from the oats in the mash. While it is a wee bit cloying, I would knock back of few of these, a nice alternative to the big watery Lagers that have sullied the style.

Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Clear golden. Fruity nose. Mid sweet with light-medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Fruity and lightly bready. Low bitterness.
