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.""""

Probably my favourite beer. Love the hints of whisky, the caramel flavour and the strength makes it a winner too.

Couleur légèrement ambrée bien limpide, mousse tenace, nez sur les céréales et vaguement sur le caramel. Rien d’affriolant à priori. En bouche c’est vraiment léger. Le miel ressort bien mais sans être lourd. Avec les notes boisées en arrière-plan, on pourrait presque croire à du sirop d’érable. Les céréales se font pas mal sentir dans l’ensemble. Globalement ça manque de corps et c’est assez aqueux. C’est vraiment particulier comme bière. Vraiment pas fan...

Banzale (323) - FRANCE - JUL 11, 2017
Acheter à Auchan roncq ( nord de France ). Verre de 15cl. couleur amer reflet cuivre belle brillance. pas de mousse . au nez : note gousse vanille , boisée et un pointe caramel . en bouche : la sensation vanille est fortement présente. Note boisée plutôt légère et un fin bonbon caramel crémeuse . Le problème c’est le corps encore une fois trop léger ! Sensation aqueux et manque de corps . un peu artificiel je trouve

Hopverdju (1313) - BELGIUM - JUL 9, 2017
Helder amberkleurig bier met witte schuimkraag. Geur: moutzoetig, biscuit, ietwat vanille, ietwat hout. Smaak: licht moutzoet, wat biscuit, lichtjes vanille, vleugje tannine. Volmondig en romig. Afdronk: licht zoet, licht droog bittertje.
