This beer has a high head which allows there to be a strong hold on the class after it has been poured out. The head remains white which is pretty cool.
I like it because it doesn't have a strong hop aroma.
The taste is not bitter at all, with a hint of caramel taste.
Its a light beer.

nitro bottle into a pint glass. Deep amber with purple on the edges, minimal tan head with little retnetion. Nose is bland, maybe some light roast. Taste is black coffee roastiness with slight very faint flower. A bit of chalk. Mouth is light bodied and deffiantly sessionable. Overall, not completly horrific when confronted with only BMC competitors.

This beer is an Irish dry Stout, and in my opinion one of the best in the market. The smell was a mix of malt and barley, texture and mouth feel was slightly watery, but overall smooth in texture. This beer retains a full head on the glass when poured.

Poured unto a nonic glass.

Appearance: Do I really need to let you know?, pours an an almost opaque brown, tan head coming off the body roughly a full inch to an inch and change.

Smell: You know what nothing smells like, that's what Guinness Draught does to you.

Taste: No it's not average, it is the beer that originally changed my direction when I started my beer adventures.

Mouth: This is the definition of light carbonation, whether tap, bottle or can and personally I don't think it helps it. It is definitely an acquired liking to this beer.

Overall: I thank you Guinness, I was first introduced this back in high school in the late 90's and will never forget my first glass. This beer is smooth and easy to love, but compared to what else is out on the market it is mediocre at best, but compared to who makes a better "Irish Dry Stout" don't bother looking else where. Salud!
