Itís like Guinness Foreign Extra Stout that has been kicked in the balls. The obligatory Guinness creamy mouthfeel is replaced by a fizzy, meandering consistency. There isnít that special pop from the Extra Stout, either. The Generous ale comes off as more of a seasonal phone-in than an artisan offering. Still, itís perfectly mediocre rather than awful.

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.

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!

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2014 Pours a deep red brown with an off white head that leaves "Generous" lacing. Nose is spice. The palate is medium body. The taste is slight roasted malt.

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.
