Usually called Draught; sometimes called Cold or Extra Cold - same beer, but served colder. Abv ranges from 4.1 to 4.3 % depending on where it was brewed (Guinness exports a hopped and concentrated wort to regional breweries who then brew it on site).
Launched in 1961.
Ingredients: Pale ale malt, about 25 to 30% flaked barley, and about 10% roasted barley, with no other grains or sugars; several hop varieties, mainly Goldings (pellets and isomerized extract); a flocculent head-forming ale yeast.

Drunk at the Guiness Factory, Dublin, Ireland. What an amazing beer from an amazing brewery. If you think its good where you've had it then wait to you go to the factory in Dublin, it will blow your mind. Think, creamy pints or nourishment. Unmistakable white head that takes a year to settle. The roasted flavors are smooth and well integrated. This is a mega beer, that if you like to drink perfectly you'd better go to Ireland. For Beer Drunk outside of Ireland -2 from Overall Impressoin. Its just to veriable everywhere else.

What can be said about Guinness? It pours very dark with an extremely stable medium white head that does not disperse. The beer does not have much aroma, but is so smooth to drink. I love this beer.

Average as Stouts go, I am not a huge Stout fan. I feel that there is not enough complexity to satisfy my taste buds.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2003 Classic Irish Stout. What can you say, great creamy head, nice bitter / sweet taste of roasted barley but not too heavy in body.

Apparently I'm one of the few non-lovers of Guinness. I like a lot of dry stouts but Guiness just doesn't do it for me.

One of my favourite beers. Me and Dave drinks it all the time. Only £1.69 in Spoons! Magic.

Dark in color but with a slightly creamy taste. a good head on it, but i'm sure that's due more to the little nitrogen widget in the bottle. i'll have this on draft the next time i'm out to get a truer taste for it.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2003 strong but surprisingly well mixed beer... you taste different things that slidely colide but combina very well as well. It is a little sensation Strange enouogh, when i bought it under the alias G Draught i disliked it absolutely

UPDATED: APR 22, 2003 Cream texture and light sweet flavor are the dominant characteristics. Chewy - as much of a meal as a drink.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2004 I can't believe I used to like this stuff so much. Had a few the other night for the first time in a while, and was really let down. Super watery, basically no aroma, just a bad stout.
