mighty_meadow (203) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2013
I love Guinness but this Original in bottled form is probably my least favourite way of drinking it. Seems a bit gassy and watery compared to even say the Draught can. Still unmistakably Guinness though.

Una delle migliori stout in circolazione. Ricetta collaudata e sempre buona anche se variano temperatura e stagione.
