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.
Serving type: nitro-can
