Michigan

2.55/5  rDev -26.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Lightly toasted aroma wafts upward when poured, as the widget does its stuff and releases the nitrogen. The typical ultra smooth, creamy head erupts and remains at least a half-finger high until finished. Pasteurized and filtered, the liquid emerging after the foaming subsides is quite clean with a very dark ruby-red color.

Flavor is somewhat thin and watery in the mouth with just a hint of malt and hops, especially compared to the Guinness Extra Stout poured next to it, as an experiment in Irish imbibing on this St. Patrick's day. The bottle text urging "serve extra cold" and "drink straight from the bottle", is a tip off that this brew is aimed at the mass market, not true beer hounds.

Yes, it's drinkable, but not nearly as much so as the Extra Stout, which, even though this one was brewed in Canada, is at least a head above the Irish-brewed Draught.

Serving type: nitro-bottle
