A - typical Guinness here, a bit more red amber and translucent appearance sure, but in general the same standby. Nice cascading action towards the end of the pour and that same 1 finger off-white head that lingers the entire time and leaves a quilt of lacing all the way down

S - Honestly, nothing of note. Some light dark malt and a hint of toast, but that's about it

T - Take 2-3 ounces of a decent marzen style beer and add 8oz of water to it. It's like if Budweiser made a "fest" edition. No notable flavors, maybe some hint of a weak malty toast here and there but it's all quickly washed away by the watery, flat mouthfeel. Overall has that cheap beer flavor on the back of the tongue thew entire time.

M - Flat, bodyless, characterless. Like a watered down marzen that was left out all night.

O - Typical, terrible Guinness - at least what we get in the US. To me it's the Bud Light of Stouts, and it's just something that $3 draft Miller/Coors/Bud/Corona drinkers go crazy for on St. Patrick's day so they can pretend to be Irish. I will never understand how Guinness is able to produce a beer that looks so beautiful, but ends up being so hollow. This version fits the same bill, and will - if anyone actually cares about it - just be peddled to the same crowd that thinks Pumpkinhead is the be-all end-all of pumpkin ales.
