Virginia

3.75/5  rDev +16.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a light straw color with a solid 3-4 inches of foam. Maybe it's my official Milwaukee Brewers pint glass, but it looks an awful lot like Miller Lite, with the exception of a much more durable head that leaves some lace. Smell is distinctive and very much present. Like a stronger version of the Mexican macros. Taste is more solid than the smell would indicate - lot of upfront malt. Not surprising this would be Guinness's take on lager. Little bit of caramelized sweetness on the back of the tongue too; not much hoppiness. Nice mouthfeel - substantial and slightly sticky. Surprisingly little carbonation for all that foam. The foam actually gets in the way of drinkability to an extent. It's sudsy, and just does not go away.

Altogether a nice beer, although I question where its niche is - it's doesn't go down like a light beer, it's not breadlike like a stout, and it's not hoppy-strong like a pale ale. More like a light stout than anything else.

3.2/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Twelve ounce bottle.

A: Pours a clear pale yellow with a half-inch thick white head which fades to a thin cap and leaves semi-rings and spots of lace.

N: Yeasty and malt/grainy with a faint citrus and grassy note.

T: Clean and crisp, biscuity malts and yeast.

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Yeasty, mildly sweet malt finish.

O: Basic in every way and thankfully not too undrinkable.
