More like obese tire am I right? Pours amber with a white head that fades into a thin lace. Smells toasty, bready and with hints of caramel and piney American hops. Tastes bready. Lots of biscuit malt. Toasted flavors dominate the palate. It's fairly sweet. Hop bitterness is there but I feel like this is a little unbalanced towards the sweet end of things. Medium amounts of carbonation. Drinks easy enough.
Serving type: bottle

I first had this from the bottle and though it was a decent beer, it was nothing to recommend to a friend. Then I went to my local Irish Pub, with the intent of having a couple Guinness with lunch, and found they had this on tap. I ordered one.
The head was minimal, but the appearance was a nice amber. The taste had a bit of hop but finished sweet. I'd describe the flavor as hoppy bubblegum. Surprisingly, I liked it. It was much better on-tap than from the bottle. I liked it so much I had another and never got to my Guinness (Sorry Grandpa McBride).
Serving type: on-tap
