Time to review the classic.
Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint. (A regular bottle without the ridiculous and unnecessary "nitro widget")
A - Deep dark ruby-brown with a two-finger, perfectly even, off-white head. Lacing quickly slinks back into the glass.
S - Wow. Almost no aroma. Little hint of toasted grain.
T - Roasted grain taste forward, but a kind of a rolled oat, cereal grain flavor. Some mild hops bring bitterness but not much else. Not complex or deep, but the taste presented is pretty good. Roasted, but not burnt.
M - Light bodied, and extremely creamy. Normally wouldnt be something I would rate highly, but it works here. Finishes dry as a bone. Easy drinking for sure.
O - This is the Guinness that everyone associates with the brand, and much better WITHOUT the nitro. That said, it's a classic, but ultimately a little too bland and boring for my personal tastes.
