I drank this from a pilsener glass. Also the product that I had was labeled "Premium" and came in a green bottle. I did not see this on the Guinness website, only the lager shown on this page.

Appearance: Somewhere between yellow and gold in color and clear. Two fingers of nice foam that left some decent lacing all the way down as the beer was consumed. Some carbonation rising up from the bottom.

Smell: My nose was smelling mostly hops with some malt aroma in the background.

Taste: To me it was mostly hops with maltiness in the background again. Hop bitterness was mild with a little aftertaste.

Mouth feel: It was smooth and easy. Semi-dry finish with flavor hanging around a little bit.

Overall. This is a good beer that I would have again. I believe it to be slightly above par for the style.

A: Served a nice golden color with a good head that faded to decent lacing.

S: Mild aroma of malt sweetness, some grain and a hint of hops.

T: taste of malt sweetness and grain with a mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish.

F: Light body, crisp and somewhat refreshing.

O: Pretty decent Euro Lager, best on tap. Better than BMC offerings.

On Tap at the Aulde Dubliner

Appearance - Clear yellow colour with a large size frothy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for 3 or 4 minutes.

Smell - bread, grains, corn, malts

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation an I can taste bread/grains mixed with corn and malts. There is also some light hops and some floral notes. It ends with a malty slightly bitter aftertaste.

Overall - What we have here is just a nice tasting well balanced lager. I'm not sure it's worth the 'import' price of 7.50$ a pint though. Not something I'd buy again at a bar based on the price that's for sure.
