Guinness is often the only beer worth drinking in English working men's pubs. Haven't had one for well over a year.

A: I think everyone knows what Guinness looks like.

S: A bit of smokey malt. Not strong.

T: Metallic, watery, slightly smokey and sour. No coffee at all. Some citrus in the aftertaste.

M: It's got a widget so it kind of feels like it's been pulled from the pump. Otherwise, there's not much interaction with the tongue at all. Pretty poor.

O: I've been serious about beer for a year and my palate has evolved somewhat. It's a heck of a lot more insipid than I remember but for the casual beer drinker it's still a great alternative to lager.
