COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Avaialable in 330ml & 750ml bottles and on draught: Pasteurised.
Brewed by Belhaven for Innis & Gunn
Originally marketed simply as Innis & Gun Oak Aged Beer. "Original" was added later.

Ingredients: Golden Promise and crystal malt; Phoenix hops.
""""For 30 days this honey-hued beer sleeps in hand selected oak barrels, locked inside a bonded warehouse, gradually assimilating the subtle flavours that reside in the wood. Barrels are then emptied and maturation continues for a further 47 days in a marrying tun where these natural flavours infuse and fall into perfect balance. This 77-day process is unique and produces a delicious, refreshing beer: Aromas of vanilla and toffee, hints of citrus, with a malty, lightly oaked,palate. Deftly balanced and light in texture, soothing and warming in the finish.""""

Clear gold color with slim white head. Light malty aroma with hints of vanilla and caramel. Flavor is quite the same as aroma with hints of oak. Low carbonation and light body with a sweet finish.

Botella de 33 cl de vivalabirra. Oviedo 14_03_2014. color anaranjado bastante oscuro y trasparente. Cuerpo ligero fácil de beber y bastante fino. Aromas bastante suaves. Sabores especiados con ligero gusto a maderas al final. Poco amargo. Se deja beber, sin muchas sorpresas

Very sweet almondish smell. Golden color with almost no head. Taste almond marzipan too. Not really my stuff but for one timer it is ok

Marduk (2009) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 14, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear amber color. Looks fizzy. Medium size, white head, stays. Hop extract, peppermint, sweet, alcohol in aroma. Smells like cheap alcopop. Toffee, apples, strawberries, bubblegum and vanilla in taste. I’m very confused. No it’s cheap alcopop.

thirstyrabbit (998) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle. Golden body, medium to small head. Aroma equals to a dash of scotch poured into lager. Grainy and mildly boozy. Taste has a vomity sweetness and some sawdust with slices of mouldy cucumber. Shockingly bad. It resembles all these cheap "rum" and "tequila" flavoured "party" pale lagers that are mostly undrinkable...

NikkTwist (1387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber pour with some white foam. Odd bready aroma. Tangelos. Soured buttered vanilla pumpernickel with honey. Feels to me like an attempt to turn a Hoegarden into a syrupy Belgium Christmas beer. I like my Scottish Ales dark. This one doesn?t work.

48FanInCali (663) - California, USA - MAR 10, 2014
11.2 oz bottle - Very light pour with some head. Nose mostly of alcohol and artificial wood flavoring. Taste is pretty much the same with a hint of citrus. Super thin on the palate.

ljstephenson (249) - Enterprise, Alabama, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Bright deep orange pour with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is strong vanilla and hints of pine. Flavor is subtle spices, mainly vanilla, and well-balanced malt to hop (Kent hops perhaps) ratio. Finish has soft mouthfeel and slight dryness. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep orange to amber color, offwhite head. Woody, caramel nose, hint of spice. Caramel malt taste, earthy. Light body and carbonation.

Masterkush7 (372) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 7, 2014
Aroma is of oak and malts. Taste is of malts, oak, vanilla, and toffee. A smooth, easy drinking beer but not a favorite.
