SNL (278) - - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber pour, small white head. Sweet oak taste, and really not a lot of the expected hops. Not much bitterness to be found. Too sweet for me.

DuffMan (6968) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle. No description needed, given the clear bottle. Typical Innis & Gunn: overuse of raw oak and underuse of malt with high residual sugar sweetness. Another miss, at least for me.

ReV2 (147) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle from B&M. Sweet honey with resin & oak. I like strong, sweet beers but this one’s too much, something artificial here, Tate & Lyle Golden Syrup with tree sap? Not for me, sorry.

gegwilson (1379) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle from B&M. Amber pour with frothy white head. Really quite sweet with plenty of citrus, oak, vanilla and a little toffee. Slight washing up finish. Too sweet for my taste.
