Years after my first Guinness experience: finally a review!
Poured from from a nitro-can into a chalice.
A - Poured dark brown, formed a layer of black, brown, and light tan head; settled to ink black body with a thin tan head that lingered the entire duration of my drinking it (around an hour)
S - Roast grains
T - Cream, light roast malts, nuts, and finishes a slightly sour hoppy note
M -Thick and creamy, like a just slightly fizzy glass of buttermilk
O - A lot of people complain that this is just a plain beer, and really light, and it's all just marketing. In a way, that's true. Guinness draught isn't a heavy, complex porter that will change your perspective of beer. But it's a good simple alternative to the other basic lagers or porters you might order with dinner, or at a cafe. It's light enough to not dominate a meal or fill you up, but it's creamy and tasty enough to be an enjoyable alternative when you want something a bit different. Either way, I'm still quite fond of this beer.

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.
