Seasonal mix-pack from Guinness with a new beer to my eyes, so I had to give it a shot. The beer was poured from a bottle into a tumbler pint. It pours a bright, vibrant, amber-copper coloring with a thin, clingy, filmy white ring around the surface. Aromas of old world fruit, both subtle and darkly sweet, with a touch of spicing. Flavors are roasted initially, with a significant drop off of body and flavors after the forward profiles. Touches of toffee and caramel blend in the backbone, with a touch of tang throughout. The roasty qualities survive throughout, and well into the aftertaste, which intertwines with a tangy sweetness for a decent balance that is missing on the main part of the palate. The beer is light and smooth, made for a day of quaffing. Sweet linger on the finish, with a slight cloying feel as the last of the flavor leaves your tastebuds. Interesting brew, and not a bad addition to the stateside lineup for Guinness.
