3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle from variety pack. Pours a dark brown with a two inch tan head. Taste is of malt, caramel, hops, pine, some citrus and the normal Guinness flavors are there. Similar clean aroma. Has a mostly full body and a slightly bitter and dry finish. Easy to drink, satisfying and quite enjoyable. Well worth having again.

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.

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 :)"

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber brown body under a small wispy off-white head. The nose is pretty nondescript, just some light caramel sweetness and just a bit of hoppiness. The flavor is fairly bland and boring as well, sweet caramel and toasty malt with a minimal floral hop note on the finish. Medium bodied with lots of fizzy carbonation. Just comes across and. Little too bland and boring.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark red-amber pour with a tan head. The aroma has some strong toffee notes and not much else. The flavor is a mix of toffee, grass and some odd, hard to nail down spice notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
