I usually pour my Guinness Draught from the can into a big glass mug as it's hard to enjoy the head through the can mouth.
Appearance: "it's a party inside" really does describe it. I cannot explain how excited I get watching a Guinness settle down in the glass, an almost black beer with very light colored bubbles swirling about.
Smell: Not sure if it's the nitrogen or what, but there's always a mask on the smell for me when it's not on tap.
Taste: I'll admit it's not nearly as tasty as the extra stout, but it still has some hints of great flavor in there. Draught is the more main-stream, drinkable beer really, but I would never call it anywhere near a bad taste.
Mouthfeel: perfect for me. surprisingly light and creamy for how dark it looks.
Drinkability: I can drink this beer all night long, have one or two with dinner, hell, i could probably drink Guinness draught for breakfast. when in a bar that serves bud, coors, miller, carona, and that sort, a guinness draught will put a smile on my face every time.

A long time ago, before I really stated learning about beer, I bought the Guinnes hype. Like most people I found the first few pints unpalatable but came to like the beer after some time. Then I discovered real flavour and didn't touch Guinness again for years. A pint of Guinness looks great, smells uninteresting,, has a one dimensional burnt flavour devoid of hops and an overdeveloped nitro-head that doesn't seem to do anything other than maintain the good appearance until the point is finished. If you want to drink Guinness and have flavour, ditch this and stick to the foreign extra offering.

First off, I'll say that I really like Guinness. That out of the way, I prefer to have the beer on-tap if I can get it, but I live in a smaller town so I have to travel about 35 minutes if I want to get it at a pub in Fort Worth, TX. I think it's a gorgeous beer when it is first served, and the smell and taste is just superb in my opinion.
Last time I went to the aforementioned pub I brought a friend along, and she also ordered a Guinness. I figured she knew what she was doing. Well, that ended with me having two beers, and her having a hard cider.

Pours darn near opaque with only a slight hue around the edge when held to the light. The head is mocha colored creamy foam and it lasts and leaves grogeous lace. This beer looks amazing. The nose a mild bit of roasted malt, it promises something grainy and maybe a bit bitter. A light sweet chocolate in the background. Taste is where this one loses me. Weak flavors thin body. Watery and thin although soft and creamy. Weak coffee, roast that had potential but fizzled in it's lackluster approach to the palate. There's not really much alcohol in this one so it' wasn't
planning on being strong. And it's not. Earthy, hints of char light smooth and finishes slightly with a faint bitterness from roast . It had a slight imperfection in the mouthfeel as it was actually grainy at the back palate. An actual sensation of something faintly gritty.
