Scottish brewer Innis and Gunn recently unveiled its latest beer which is infused with a bourbon liquor. The Bourbon Pale Ale was created as a summer-inspired beer that complements the brand's existing Bourbon Cast Dark Ale.
The smooth brew is made with cascade and amarillo hops and is matured in "Oakerator, which percolates the beer through Bourbon cask oak chips." The copper-colored beer emits sweet aromas of geranium, pink grapefruit and cloves. The taste of the beer is complete with a slight bitterness and hints of chocolate, malt and oak.
The bourbon-infused brew from Innis and Gunn adds a creative twist to ordinary beers. By combining beer and liquor into one cohesive taste, the bottled beverage appeals to a wider audience of beer enthusiasts and flavor-seeking consumers.
