When describing Beamish to friends I don't call it "the poor man's Guinness" cuz I don't want them to just stop right there and never try it, but the fact is, it is the poor man's Guinness. Maybe it's cuz I've only had it from a nitro can which to me seems to make beers light, airy and watery.

A - Black. With a nice foamy head, but nothing extraoridinary.

S - Slightly burn, coffee-like, but not overwhelmingly so.

T - Milk chocolate-esque, like a bit of white chocolate got in there by accident. The ABV is low and the taste reflects it, which can be a good thing.

M - Very smooth. Hardly notice it quite frankly

D - Goes down super easy.

I tried Beamish on St.Patty's day, cuz it's an Irish Stout and it just seemed like the thing to do. Now I'm not saying I'd never have another, but there are numerous other stouts out there I'd choose over this one.

Serving type: nitro-can

Ireland's finest stout, much nicer than Guinness. I could drink a dozen of these and still want more. Personally I find it more refreshing and easier to drink than the world famous Guinness. If in Ireland, I would reccomend buying one of these before Guinness, they are just as widely availible as the other legendary stout. It is famous for being slightly cheaper too. I wouldn't buy this from a can or bottle though, completely different drink.
