Second in the brewhouse series named after the loveable Gilroy ads.

Appearance, you know what a Guinness looks like!

This was sold as a triple hopped Guinness, so it sounded pretty interesting. Backbone is same old Guinness nitro-draught although I would say the roastiness was dumbed down. Hops doesn't come through in bitterness, it offers a slightly floral note and a not unpleasant sweetness to the Guinness, but it is by no means strong.

I was disapointed by the brewhouse series. What a chance to blow people away by the expertise and technology Guinness have at their disposal, instead they chose to make "Guinness for tourists" as the Irish seemed to think of it. Won't miss these.
