Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Original (SCO)

‘Don’t judge a book by it’s cover’ so the saying goes. Being quite a fan of the cliche (e acute), I’d say ‘it’s the exception that proves the rule’.  And so to Edinburgh’s Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Original. The book’s cover, in this case the label, boasts “Smooth Scottish beer with hints toffee, vanilla and oak”.

Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Beer .... beer from Scotland!
Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Beer …. like Connery, smooth and interesting

 

So let’s judge it. ‘Smooth’, tick; ‘Scottish’, tick; ‘beer’, tick; with hints of ‘toffee’, tick; ‘vanilla’, tick and ‘oak’, tick. The only note I might add is the slightest hint of whiskey in the oak finish but then, it is Scottish. If only every label had such comprehensive tasting notes, my job would be done.

Here’s the Last Band in Town with ‘Guns of Brixton’ …… pure dope ….. for gunns.
