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.

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

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[2194-20090523] Tap. Mild roast grains aroma. Black body with a thick very long-lasting creamy mocha head and some lacing. More coffee up front in the flavour with bitter roasted grains and nice toast notes. Medium-full body is a tad watery. Nice, a little more bitter than the regular.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2007 At 2.8 per cent proof, the mid-strength product is lower in alcohol than Guinness Light was (3.6 per cent). The crucial difference is that mid-strength Guinness is designed to look and taste as close as possible to the regular 4.2 per cent brew.
Pours identical to regular Guinness, aroma a little lighter. Has a lighter taste than regular Guinness however is certainly very good. I would not choose it over regular Guinness however it may appeal to people who are driving or cutting back on alcohol but still want to enjoy a pint of Guinness. Nice enough.

In can, thanks Craig. A black beer with a thick and creamy light tan head. An aroma of chocolate and roasty malt. Similar flavours of chocolate and roasted barley with lingering caramel also. Very easy to drink. Thin compared to the regular version with a creamy mouth-feel.

2009-05-23. Ruby tinged black body, creamy tan head and lace. (4+) Dry roasty aroma like a bowl of roast barley and coffee beans. Muted touches of mocha. (6+) Flavour is similar to Guinness, seems a touch more dilute overall, but almost a touch more dry roast to it at times. Less mocha than the regular? (6+) Smooth average palate. About what you would expect a light version of Guinness to taste like. Okay. On tap at Guinness Storehouse, Dublin

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2010 Black body with big, lasting white head. Smooth but not as full-bodied as regular Guinness. Was actually comparatively watery and thin. Aroma of roasted malts. Tasted very bitter. There was also a heavy coffee taste with caramel and chocolate notes. Finish was bitter. Average.

Draught at Guinness Storehouse. Dark almost black coloured beer with a medium creamy head. Roasted malty sweet aroma. Medium roasted palate. Finish is malty roasted, begins light but ends very bitter, with strong roasted bitter touches. Some stronger touches and at the same time less strong than the regular Guinness.
