One of my favourites ... a world class beer from Scotland!

At 6.6% alcohol, Innis & Gunn Blonde Beer lovingly brewed in Scotland, would be classified as a strong beer. And while its smooth flavour is certainly powerful, there's nothing overwhelming or unpleasant about it. Not a trace of bitterness to be found.

Aged for 37 days in oak casks, a procedure usually reserved for malt whiskies or fine scotch, Innis & Gunn Blonde Beer goes down like silk. A sweet beer, without being cloying and without any unpleasant aftertaste, it has a slight citrus flavour. But the its most noticeable characteristic is an aroma and taste of a combination of vanilla or toffee that's almost like caramel or honey.

And, surprise ... while the flavour is intense, it's mellow and remains flavourful such that it's easy to imagine having two or three of these little guys at a sitting without the flavour becoming overwhelming or unpleasant in any fashion.
