4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I was able to try this as part of the Winter Sampler pack. First off, why is this beer, or any of the other Guinness brews stuck in a package with the disgusting Guinness Black Lager, I will never know. This has a nice vanilla taste, strong roast, and a hint of toffee. This is a great beer, and worthy of the Guinness name, unlike a earlier mentioned brew.

A malty sweetness with an underlying bitter aroma come from this clear deep red brew with an offwhite head. The taste is sweet with a slight bitterness and the taste of tin (probably from can). The aftertaste is sweet fading into a dry and bitter typical of this style. It's medium bodied and smooth.

Can @ home, thanks to MacBoost for this one off! Pours an orangish brown appearance with a foamy, brown head. The aroma is creamed corn, lemon, grass, and wood. Twangy lemon flavor. Moderate high sweetness, low bitterness. The flavor is metallic and lemony. Not too good.

Can @ home. Thanks, Boost. Cooper pour with a khaki head. Aroma is big on bread, toast, and grass. Not terribly fragrant. The flavor is just kind of toasty and grainy. Grassy and slightly bitter finish. A decent bit of bready malts. Ok.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not much to love but not much to hate either! Has a lovely mahogany pour w/ a thin tan head that leaves good lacing. The aroma has a nice little holiday spice undertone to it. The flavor is nearly 100% clean w/ a little bit of dryness in the finish. Not bad!

Guinness Generous Ale (Arthurís Holiday Ale)... Dusty, toffee malt aroma with sine caramel and toasted bread. Reddish-brown color; thin tan-colored crown. Flavor is light caramel, moderately dry earthy malt, nice herbal hop presence. Medium-light body; smooth. This is a really nice beer that Iíd drink more if it were available on a regular basis.
