Can liberated from a friendís fridge. Pours brown with a creamy off-white head. Looks nice. The nose is unmistakable. Light cocoa. Tinny ash and roasted malts. Soft marshmallow. I donít drink Guinness often but Iím always surprised by how light it is. The flavorís of cocoa and grain. Not particularly roasty or bitter. Dry finish. Very light body. Almost watery. Moderate carbonation. Overall, itís not great. Howeverís itís a very consistent easy drinker.

Draught at the silver eel Aghadolgan. Had this many many times but the first time I could be bothered to rate it. Aroma is woody, earthy light roast with a little vanilla cream. Opaque black coloured pour with reddy hues and a lovely creamy head that lasts to the last drop. Flavour is composed of light roast, dried fruit, little creamy, slight tart and metallic in the finish. Palate is medium bodied, creamy and easy to sink. OK.

How have I not rated this? Before the craft ale explosion, this was often a "default" pint. If you havenít sampled it and formed your own opinion, do so now. Otherwise, Iím not sure what youíre doing on this site. I still enjoy the occasional pint, but NEVER the extra cold version. Years ago, I laid off the beer for 18 months due to a medical condition, and despite the fact that I rarely drank it before abstinence, this was the beer I craved, and what I eventually supped on my return to the fold. Ubiquitous and rarely disappointing, terrifyingly consistent, there are those who say it tastes uniquely different in Dublin, but this is blarney.

Aroma: coffee, not to strong. I think nice. Color: black, clear, very nice nitro head. Taste: medium (but good for it) bitterness and medium sourness. Palate: light body, thin feel. One of the best in this class.

Draught in local - pours a dark brown - black with tan head. Marketing is superb, prob has best reputation out of all the macro beers on here. Aroma of coffee, roast with little bitterness to finish.

Used to be a huge Guinness drinker before craft. Still a pretty decent pour thatís readily available. The best part is the deep reddish brown pour with the thick thick light tan colored head that laces your glass the whole way down. Aromas of roasted malts, toast grains, and somewhat of a metallic finish. Creamy thick mouthfeel, with a dry finish.
