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 ?

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle. BBE Jan/16. (K-Citymarket) Tampere, Finland.
Clear golden colour with a mid-size white head.
Aroma of wood, dryness, malt and cheap hops.
The flavour is malt, some sweetness, mild hops and mild bitterness. Tastes like cheap lager. Not my favourite.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Looks the business and is a solid if completely unremarkable lager. Iím not a huge fan of Innis and Gunnís other beers Iíve tried but one thing Iíd say in their favour is that theyíre distinctive. This is drinkable but itís just a standard lager.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden, sparling lightly, thin but long white head. Malty, earthy feel, bit light herbs and floral notes, semisweet. Light body, low carbonation, soft feel, dry. Too thin and diluted for my taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled (from Ruokapuoti Lumo, Rauma). Golden colour, minor head, which disappears quickly. Aroma is wooden, floral, some fruity notes. Flavour is floral, herbal, wooden, grassy and some more wooden notes. Tastes a bit like most I&G beers would do without the barrel...

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 330ml (from Ruokapuoti Lumo)
Clear golden color, small white head. Malty, slightly grainy and sweetish aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Sweetish malty flavor. This has something similar to other Innis & Gunn beers. It is not barrel-lagered but there is like a hint of vanilla. Low bitterness. Clean beer but not much use with this price.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Tesco, Prestwich. Paler golden with a small head and a carbonation. Has an attractive label but itís essentially a bland and rather tasteless lager.
