Cask handpull at GBBF 2017. Thanks to Lars. Clear amber colour. No head. Toffee aroma. Its another innis and gunn piece of rubbish. No idea what you can do with herbs and wood. Bit thin in mouth not good condition. Eek. Not overly offensive.

Inveralmond GBBF
Cask at GBBF. It pours clear copper with a thick foamy white head. The aroma is soft, sweet, sticky, toffee, dried fruit, wood, vanilla, raisin, fruit cake and brown bread. The taste is dry, soft, sweet, wood, leather, tannin, fruit tea, fruit cake, raisin, brown bread, brown sugar and candy with a drying finish. Medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. Peach ice tea vibe. Fair enough.

Cask at GBBF. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The aroma is fresh, fragrant, lemony, lemongrass, spice, nutmeg, toasty grain, cereal and such like. The taste is dry, bitter, spice, fragrant, straw, grass, grain, tannin, wood, grapefruit and pepper with a very drying finish. Light - medium body and soft carbonation. Not sure the balance is there.

Cask at GBBF. This version is 3.8.%. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The aroma is muted, sweat, wet grass, damp leaves and sweet white bread. The taste is similar, bitter - sweet, cheap white bread, grassy, damp, leaves, straw, white bread, citrus pith and candy. Sweetish finish. Light - medium body and soft, yet lively carbonation. Good condition, but unexciting beer.

Cask, Capital Asset Perth. Pours crystal clear gold, foamy head. Smell a bit odd, like the veggie drawer of your fridge if something is off. Definitely vegetal. Tastes better. Some citrus, some bitterness, a little malt and something peppery. A half would have been enough. Not quite right.

Bottle. Was expecting something like a McEwans Champion, but this is much more sophisticated. Yes, there's a boozy background, but it's more than balanced by a nice smoothness. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Inveralmond Blackfriar Scottish Ale
Not much head. Color is a bit dirty, clear, orange-brown. Aroma is sweet and malty and has caramel, bourbon vanilla, salt licorice, red wine and wine- or (red) berry-based liquour aromas. Some of the alcohol can also be sensed as warmth. Palate is slightly watery, but it can be interpreted as lightness. There’s also a bit of heaviness to the palate. A lightly dry finish. Taste is malty, typical ale tastes, caramel, aniseed, salt licorice, some faint burnt notes. A very stylish and delicious presentation of the ale style. There are no extra sidetastes. A bit watery, but nevertheless quite good beer.

Pint, Railway Inn, Lower Largo. Pale straw in colour, slight haze, thin white head. Not much to it, light in body, it DOES have a smooth butter feel to it which I found quite unusual.

Innis & Gunn Gunpowder IPA
Keg at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A hazy deep golden colour with medium white head. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, subtle biscuity malts and slight floral hops. Taste of orange, some grapefruit, slight peach, a little biscuity malts and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, dry, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A citrusy ’IPA’ with lots of sweet malt and fruits making this very sessionable for its strength. Decent.

Inveralmond Rascal London Porter
2017-04-06. Dark brown body, modest frothy head. Aroma is relatively mild at first, lightly dusty dark malt, hints of treacle, very light roast. Flavour is interesting, sweetish base up front, hints at treacle followed by light roast and bitterness through the middle and a kiss of fruit in the finish. Very smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Thinner than my preference for the style but works for it for the most part. 7/3/7/3/14 Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.

September 22, 2015 - at The Falcon (Clapham) - cask handpull. With lagerloather and JerCraigs. Fairly clear gold, brassy, small white head. Diacetyl/butter off-putting aroma - taste has less nasty butter but is still sadly overly and cloyingly sweet; slick, still, somewhat harsh in the aftertaste ... tick.
