Looks like Guinness. Tastes like a watery Guinness. That's all really. Bigger taste than I was expecting from the abv. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The head is robust, the body is stable. It smells roasty, darkmalty, creamy, foamy, nice! The taste is creamy, less carbonation, roasty, darkmalty, full bodied, nice. Almost as good as the normal Guinness Draught. One of the best low alcohol beers I had! 14/13/12/13/-/13

On tap in Kildare. Colour ruby red almost black with a thick white head. Exactly the same look as a classic guinness. Taste close enough too. Itís just a little bit more watery and a not as well balanced . Overall I was impressed.

Down2die (108) - IRELAND - MAR 10, 2013
Enjoyed a pint in oasis letterkenny followed after a full strength which not having had one for awhile tasted pretty bland and mediocre, so the mid strength that followed was pretty much the same in my book, but nice to have a pint without getting buzzed too quick you could pace yourself with a few of these in between, would go back for more

Can. Very dark brown with a firm cream foam. Aromas are dark treacle with brown sugar and nutty coffee. Earthy peat with dusty carbonation. Flavours are dry, earthy and nutty with roast coffee and a light fruitiness. Dusty and dry to finish. Not bad.

My drink of choice while at the Village Inn, while hanging with brother in Celbridge .. . 2 per half, the guinness charm but the abv made it that after the game we watched, i could still go home and open some bottles... iíd gladly have this on draft in my home, in every room!!

Theydon_Bois (12860) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Tap at PJís, Carlingford, 26/01/13. Light black with a good sized light tan/off white head that retains very well. Excellent lacing ensues thereafter. Nose is very muted - not a lot to note! Malt, grain, barley, light metallic notes. Taste comprises light roast malt, mineral tones, barley, grain. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish. A far blander version of the not exceptionally flavoursome original!

goozen (3413) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2012
Can 0,44ltr: Opaque black likes its big brother or big sister, only weaker in taste but there are some equations. Like this one, but the original is still better.
