This beer poured (into a pint glass) a dark brown with a 2 finger high light brown head. The head dissipated and left a very thin bubble film. The lacing was thick and clung to the glass. The initial smell of the beer was that of alcohol and a slight amount of malts. The initial taste was that of roasted malts. The finish was similar to that of a wheat beer and rather subtle, not enough of a bite as I was expecting, or what I remember from a previous Guinness I had had. The brew has a light body, which is what made it seem easier to drink down quickly.
What disappointed me about this beer was the weak smell, and the rather light body. Can't say I won't get it again, but I'd take a Sam Adams over this one.
