3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pounder can from the winter 8-pack.. Pours clear deep amber with a short lived off white head.. Dark bread with an appropriate amount of English yeasty fruitiness showing.. Nutty/lesser earthy malts work well with the restrained grassy hops.. Obviously English.. Very well done.. Maybe a little tinny given the time in the can, but I would buy this if I could get it outside the Guinness 8-pack.
Fine and surprisingly drinkable.

Canned. Poured medium amber with a short-lived head. The aroma picked up lots of vanilla and nutty notes, with a bit of toasted character. The flavor found similar, picking up a little molasses.. more vanilla on the finish. Lighter-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation.. OK feel.

Was expecting more from a Guiness sampler pack. Appearance was a little tough as in a dark location. Slight vanilla scent. First drink reminded me a bit of pumpkin (though not a pumpkin ale), but might be due to slight spice in it. I do like the smooth mouthfeel. Decent, but also forgettable.

14.9 oz can, thought all the beers in this pack were going to be draught widget cans, but it looks like the regular old Guinness is the only one - Pours clear cola brown with a thin off white head that slowly reduces.Aroma is generic ale, toast, caramel malt. Taste is caramel malt, ale, it tastes like a boring generic amber lager. Boring!

This stuff is not unexpectedly bland in boring. If thatís what you were expecting, congratulations, you win nothing. It is nice looking at least with a clear red color and creamy, foamy head. Unfortunately, it smell faintly of overripe and doesnít taste like much of anything. There is a touch of toasty malt and a hint of earthy bitterness but thatís about it. This is a medium bodied beer and almost flat w/ very little carbonation. It is only a little sweet thankfully so it is still fairly drinkable but honestly I just canít see myself wanting to have another one of them.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has malt bready spice aroma. Dark almost black and ruby colored body. Has a thick two fingered foamy head that lingers for a while. Much like the Guinness Draught in taste but has a maltier presence and thinner feel. Mild spiciness. Leaves a smooth creamy feeling.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours (can) a clear, deep amber with a medium off-white/tan head, moderate lacing. Malty, caramel aroma. Taste is mildly sweet, with a light/medium bitterness. Light bodied, slightly oily. Finishes with a mild bitterness. Overall, nothing flashy, satisfies but does not deliver quite as expected.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A brownish color brew that had tannish head. Aroma of caramel malt, pine, and spice. Flavor is the same. A sticky ale, heavy on the malts.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Light brown brew with decent head that fades off pretty soon to nothing. Smells of cream, metal, spice. At first there is the toasted malts but soon after that is dominated by a funky hop. Sorta herbal with a bit of pepper. Thin and watery and for the price not something I would purchase again.
