Generally speaking I tend to stick to beer brewed in the U.S.
I mean, it’s not a personal rule or anything, it just kind of always works out that way.
I’m not opposed to beer from other countries, there are so many new ones to try here, I never usually make it to the other aisles. (Those aisles are always super far away, you know, like one over.)
I happened to be out one day, and I needed a few new beers for the #26BeerChallenge, so I stopped at a place that has a really nice selection of beer. (Canal’s of Berlin)
I figured I’d pick up a few singles for the challenge, which leads us to Innis & Gunn ‘White Oak Wheat Beer’. It’s a letter challenge, and I needed an “I”, so it worked out well!
This beer is probably the best Scottish beer that I’ve had in my life!
Okay, you got me, it’s only the second Scottish beer I’ve ever had. Both from Innis & Gunn, no less.
But, this one blew me away, as I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it as much as I did.
There’s no bite to speak of, but I didn’t think there would be, it’s not that style of beer if you get my drift.
This brew is just a smooth beer with a nice after taste.
The taste lingers for a bit, then goes away, so you have to take another sip.
Then your glass is empty.
Which was especially sad, as I had only grabbed a single, so that was my bad.
I’ll definitely be picking up more Innis & Gunn ‘White Oak Wheat Beer’ next time.

I don’t give out 4’s lightly, so take that as you will…
