Innis & Gunn Original Oak Aged
Scottish brewing success story, Innis & Gunn, is releasing its Original on draught for the first time. Light amber in colour, the smell transports you to the kitchen: aromas of rich honey and caramel from the brew's time spent maturing in specially chosen oak barrels dominate.
Banana splits, more honey and lightly caramelised malt on the palate. Good carbonation gives this a lightness of touch that belies its 6.6% strength while also making it great with a range of dishes, from pub favourites through to Michelin-star fare. No wonder people like Michel Roux have adopted it. Starting in a few select bars and pubs in Edinburgh in January, you'll find Innis & Gunn Original on draught in London, Manchester and Glasgow as the year progresses.
6.6%, RRP: £1.58/33cl, Waitrose, Sainsbury's, Tesco
