Served August 2013 from bottle into pint glass

Appearance: Amber, with thin head that did not last long.

Smell: Very mild aromas. I get some sweet-malt aromas, but overall not much.

Taste: Middle of the road body (not full but not too light). Not a lot of hops nor malt taste.

Mouthfeel: Thin, and smooth.

Overall: Ok ale. Will probably not buy a case, but will drink it when it is included in a Guinness mixed assorted case.

Guinness Generous Ale has a medium, off-white head, a clear, reddish-brown appearance, lots of bubble streams, and just a few bits of lacing left behind in splotches. The aroma is of straight-up brown bread crust, with just the faintest spice. Taste is the same, with wonderful sweetness and a pleasant hop bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Guinness Generous Ale finishes clean, refreshing, and ultra drinkable. This is a superb offering from Diageo. I just love it!
