Strangebrewer (844) - Chatham, Ontario, - JUN 23, 2014
can. Poured clear light gold with an initially large white head that settles. Sweet grainy hay aroma. Light-medium body, average carbonaton, tart finish. Flavour of light pale malt, fairly dry with spicy grassy hops. Not a complex as other Gunns I’ve tried.

Pours a light amber with light carbonation and a light white head that quickly settles into a thin film leaving little lacing behind, Aromas are of vanilla, cereal in milk, and light biscuits. Tastes are of vanilla cookies, oats, sweet corn, digestive cookies. Overall, in a world of boring cardboard flavoured lagers, this one is a standout for me.

lesifflebiere (1249) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
Dorée, mousse blanche abondante, nez de maïs et de céréales blondes. La bouche est sucrée, mince, assez savoureuse pour ne pas tomber dans l’aqueux, mais on est sans surprises devant des saveurs archi-connues. "Désaltérante" est la seule réelle qualité de ce verre d’eau pétillante jaune, aucun "naked golden oats" comme spécifié sur la canette ne vient la sauver.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1949) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle. Crystal clear gold. A sweet buttery aroma, diacetyl. Sugary grainy sweet, a bit buttery not terrible but a lager with some off-flavor. Decent to sub-par.

Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
Can - 500ml. Golden body with a thin, fading, white bubbly head. Light malty/hoppy aroma with some herbal and bready hints. Its malty taste carries hoppy, corn syrup, and flowery notes. Ends with a short bittersweet finish. Ordinary.

vadie (669) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Jaune, presque ambré, avec un petit tête blanc. Il y a pas mal du corps pour le style. C’est légèrement sucré avec un goût de céréales est aussi un très peu d’avoine. La finale est légèrement amer. En fait, c’est pas mal bien équilibré. Très bonne pour le style.

Lagerboy (1214) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
500 ml can. Clear paler golden yellow, lasting white firm foam. Muted aroma of sweet lager malt, some citrus. Taste is subdued pale lager malt, mild herbal hop, some citrus and a subtle rich sweet nuttiness from the oats. Softer carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Clean and simple, a much higher quality palate cleanser than the typical mass produced industrial swill. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

dfearnley (932) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle Grains, honey, citrus, and malt. Difficult to tell, but light yellow, frothy white head. Taste is a little bitter with grains and malts. Pretty good for a lager.

mighty_meadow (183) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - JUL 18, 2014
One of my favourite brewers but this is a let down to be honest. Slightly above standard but that constitutes a failure by I&G usual high standards. Decent lacing and easy to drink though.

Clear yellow white light head. Aroma of hops and faintly sweet aroma. Light on the tongue sweet with floral notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

exeter (286) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Pours a little darker than straw. No head, no lacing. Taste is overly sweet and boring. We have bread malts and slight grassy taste. A rare failure for Innis & Gunn.
