3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from Tesco Grimsby. Deep gold, thin shortlived creamy coloured head, low condition. Sweet and woody in the nose with hints of toffee and grainy malt, quite bitter and woody initially in the mouth with some sweetness quickly emerging giving hints of toffee and caramel, long woody finish laced with caramel and vanilla sweetness and some retronasal whisky spirit notes

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From notes: Poured clear amber with a touch of red in it and a small, thin bone-colored head. Mild aromas of vanilla and wood, but also was kind of skunky. Body is thin, with a slight oilyness. Flavor of vanilla and mild spice, with a woody note beneath that lingers in the finish. Also a touch skunky in taste, might have gotten a bad bottle.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft... Pours clear and amber with a small, fizzy, white head. The restrained bouquet furnishes light notes of caramel, oak and toasted almonds. Light to medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is sweet and reminiscent of Amaretto with a touch of vanilla, but vastly watered-down. Finishes crisp and moderately sweet. Yet another technically flawless, but boring as Hell offering from Innis & Gunn.
