Booze: Innis & Gunn Lager review

Straight off the bat, dear readers, I've not really enjoyed anything I've had from the Scottish brewery Innis & Gunn. Got a message a couple of weeks ago on twitter from Adam who worked for Innis & Gunn (He doesn't now, he fled to Cornwall. Good luck bro) asking if I fancy trying the new Innis & Gunn Lager. It'd be rude not to really.

So yes, lovely chap sent me 6 cans of it. It's not available in cans, only on keg but then a can is just a mini keg so it's the best way to send samples out.

So, what's it like?

Brewery: Innis & Gunn (Scotland)
Beer: Lager
ABV: 4.6%
I had to make my own label

Look:

It looks really yellow and carbonated but with no head.

Aroma:

Smells like the juice of canned sweetcorn.

Taste:

Firstly sweetcorn, then oats, then syrup and more sweetcorn with a bit of oil on the end.

Mouthfeel:

Feels really oily and a bit sticky.

Verdict:

Not enjoyable at all. It's fucking horrible to be honest. I'd really advise them to brew a proper lager that has decent ingredients and is lagered for more than ten fucking days. Confirms my findings of previous Innis & Gunn beers I've had.

Cheers for sending me some cans, Adam. I'm going to give my remaining ones to people I don't like.

    1. If someone bought this for me for Christmas, I would try to forget they exist!
