Bottle. Very pale beer. Tastes of oak and vanilla and little else. Underlying beer is pretty bland with no discernable characteristics. Very disappointing. Just not particularly good. (2008)

Pale Gold pour. Like other I&G quite sweet. This one is mostly a vanilla (fairly heavy) and caramel profile. Okay, bit thin.

Meh...not sure of the age on this, but not a fan. Odd mix of vanilla and fruit in a blonde ale that probably was not that great to begin with.

Not a huge fan of the vanilla in this one. Poured a nice size creamy head. Light golden appearance, pretty clear. Can taste the vanilla almost immediately. Aftertaste kinda leafy. Aroma about the same as taste. Some malts. Notes of spices in the finish. Strong vanilla scent and flavour. Certainly not my kinda beer, but not gross either.

Bottle at home. Pours pale amber, nose is toffee, vanilla, taste is, you guessed it, toffee and vanilla.

I bought this out of curiosity, pleasant surprise! Very buttery smooth taste, fixed with caramel. A definite buy again!

One thing perplexes me when it comes to this brewer, its use of clear bottles. Whenever I drink one of their beers, Im always wondering if this tastes as it should, or has it changed because of Sunligh, neonlight in the shops or so on. Anyhow, this is quite sweet, it pours over the tongue smoothly like velvet (as always with Innis) and has a perplexing taste of vanilla and oak. They are an odd bunch these beers, and Im always unsure about them, but they do add to ones life these little wonders.
