On my trip to Edinburgh and Glasgow I went to three Innis and Gunn Brewery Tap pubs, and I had this beer in each of them. That will probably give you a good idea of how much I liked it. Innis and Gunn are certainly a well known brand and you'll find at least a couple of their beers in most supermarkets around the UK so they shouldn't require much introduction. Innis and Gunn Rum Cask Oak Aged Beer isn't very inventively named, but it gives you a good idea what to expect from this 6.8% scotch ale. The beer pours a dark brown with a small white head, so it looks like most scotch ales.
Innis and Gunn Rum Cask Oak Aged Beer has an aroma that doesn't hide the rum, not that it should, but you'll also get some caramel and plenty of malts. The texture is light/medium, which isn't as full as you'd expect for a beer of this type, but that's more than made up for by the taste. There's sweet malts aplenty, with raisins, rum, and a little caramel all blended together brilliantly. I can honestly say this is one of the best beers I had on my Edinburgh and Glasgow drinking trip so Innis and Gunn Rum Cask Oak Aged Beer is well deserving of an excellent 9 out of 10 score.
