Typical widget beer (I am rating the canned version): smooth and soft, but not much in the flavor department. Seems a little weaker than Guinness.

Properly done stout, but no inspiration in it. It’s Norman Rockwell when you want Monet. Smooth but lacks richness.

I have been drinking Murphy’s for 3 years from keg at home but switched to Beamish. It has better head, better color and better flavor. Guiness is good when I’m out at pub, but a little to powerful for day to day consumption.

the dryness of the stout is overcome by the choice of hopps

Beamish is the best of Ireland’s big three hands down. This beer pours beatifully out of the can and the cascade seems to last forever. It has a chocolate, slightly roast coffee aroma and the flavour is sweet and smooth at first with a roasted bitterness in the finish. If only it were available more widely than Guinness or Murphy’s.

eczematic (1306) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2001
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2003 taste consists of thin soapy chocolatey malt body followed by vegemite on burnt toast. slightly sour, like guinness, which i dont mind in a lambic but prefer to do without in a stout. but at least it's not sweet.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2003 Weak and kind of smokey

Weak and thin. Not chewy like a stout should be. Makes my stomach hurt.
