I had heard the rumors that this product was going to become unavailable in the US and, having never tried it, I figured last night at an "American" Irish Pub was as good a chance as any.
The beer looked great, a deep black brew with a very thick, creamy head. Smell was mild roasted malts and a hint of coffee.
Taste is... well, minimal. It's very similar to the much-maligned Guinness nitro, but a more mild tasting beer. It's creamy and smooth going down (so I suppose a great session beer if you like the taste) but there's just not much flavor. Dry roasted malt, a light bitterness, a few hints of coffee here and there. I would call it watery if not for the nitro creaminess. Unimpressive, especially for the price premium.
Well, I'm sorry to say it, but if Beamish does disappear from distribution here, I won't miss it. You can do far better for the price.
Serving type: nitro-tap

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.
Serving type: on-tap
