At a party, a decent beer for socializing. Not one of my favorites from the Guinness breery, but one can't complain when the price was right, i.e. free.

Nitro head, Amber colour. Basic sweet malt nose. Very mild malt taste, thin body with low carbonation Not a lot of flavour. Would pass next time.
