On tap at Oh Shea's in Philly, 07/25/09. 90 degree heat, and the wife & I needed a rest on our way to the Mutter Museum (awesome place, especially if you like syphilis-related lesions and other medical maladies). I'm hot, tired, ready for a cold pint, something light, and Guinness would supposedly fit the bill. Overall I was disappointed. Appearance is perfect and aroma is very good, but somehow its more watery than I remember. Reading other reviews its obvious I'm not alone in my opinion. Of course considering my last review was of FBS I'm probably expecting too much. Taste is good (pleasant roasted malt bitterness), mouthfeel is silky, but there's a wateriness that dulls both and leads to point deductions. Drinkability is okay but I only had one and switched to SABL. I'll drink it again, but probably not until St. Paddy's day (and then only if Beamish isn't available).
Serving type: on-tap
