On tap (nitro):
I strange striated amber to brown that might be the glass shape allowing more and less light through the clear beer. Creamy head is awesomely stiff and persistent.

A very lightly grassy to spicy hop note peaks through a near equally light malt.

A creamy feel and taste, with a hint of peat and grass moss bitterness. Nothing is strong, but they are nicely represented. A slight copper metallic shows up occasionally, but not distractiny. A light body is betrayed by that creamy feel (nitro seems like a good choice).

This beer sort of hit the spot this sitting. Might have to revisit to see if it should be in the rotation.

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.
