Guinness and Lager do not mix. I love Guinness Regular (in the pub) and Guinness Extra Stout and my favorite is Foreign Extra but this Guinness is terrible. It tasted slightly like Guinness but it just didn't hit the spot of the way other Guinness tastes. Lager is lager and Guinness is Guinness. Just keep it that way.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Black with some ruby red highlights. Head fizzed out right away like soda.

S: Very sweet. Some caramel. Somewhat metallic as well.

T: Like the aroma. A bit too sweet for my liking. I get a bit of a metallic flavor that I picked up in the aroma as well. Fakey overdone caramel malts also come through. I get very very minimal roast character. Bitterness is very low.

M: Soda water. Very water and weak with moderately higher carbonation.

O: I wanted to like this but it really just seemed like a sweeter, black, macro lager to me. I could easily see this appealing to you're average BMC drinker if they were told to drink it straight from the bottle and didn't know it was black. Poor example of style and just a lame lack luster beer in general.
