Part of a Guinness limited edition variety pack. Poured from a can. Great appearance, high frothy head, nice dark red appearance. Vanilla notes but otherwise a fairly standard ale.

Can. Ruby brown color with a good sized beige head that went down fairly quick. Once the head diminished the aroma was sweet fruity malt and mild medicinal hops. Flavor is creamy malt followed by dry, spicy hops and a creamy, smoky, bitter finish. Medium bodied with a very mild carbonation all combine to make this something Guinness has mastered; very smooth and easy drinking but still satisfying. Loved it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Had in a can poured into a pint glass. Aromas of a cask ale with a slight hint of pumpkins. Pours a dark coppery brown with a signature beautiful, tan, fluffy head; the beer loses most of its carbonation over a short time. Tastes of a light brown smoked ale, with a bitter slightly dry finish. Drank both from a pint and a can. Good stuff!

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a can, part of a sampler 8 pack. Clear brown brew with tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, a little grass, a hint of roasted malt. Taste is sweet malt at the start, very rich, transitioning to a somewhat crude hoppy finish with bits of roasted malt coming through. Good palate. Enjoyable brew.

Guinness really ought to brew a batch of every beer style. Their approach to beer making is unrivaled, unmatched, unmistakably unique.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Reddish amber pour with a small spotty head. Aroma is malty, herbal, grassy, hint of spice. Taste is kind of minerally with some strange spice. Not very good.

"A fairly typical amber type ale. Bready toasty slightly spicy hopped red. Not sure why this is a winter pack price. Luckily found a single not a 12 pack :)"
