Nothing too special really, a bitter hay/wheat flavor, perfect head & color made my mouth water but somehow was a little disappointed after paying five dollars for one draw of it.
Just bought it to rate it, won’t buy again, too many other beers cheaper & better. Its like 8 or 9 dollars a 6 pack at my liquor store!

Not as good as I had thought it would be. This beer doesn’t deserve to have the name guiness on it. Nowhere near as flavorful as its dark brother, but none the less better than a domestic.

got a lot more flavor than most lagers, but the aftertaste is a bit strong. expensive and not my favorite, but not a bad beer either.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2003 completely different beer than when I used to drink it. Apparently its now brewed in Canada. Not nearly as good as it was when they brewed it in dundalk.

Had one of these on tap at the Old Bag of Nails in Grandview. This brew pours a clear golden. The average creamy white head is mostly diminishing with good lacing. The fruity nose has hints of flowers and perfume, along with caramel. The light crisp flavor is mostly sweet, and finishes with a nutty astringent bitterness. The smooth light creamy palate has soft carbonation. Bland, but still above average.

Nice appearance but the head retention was low. Decent palate, but I would have liked it to last a little longer in my mouth. Overall very little taste, and very unimpressive, especially for the price.

Very foamy, pure white head. Good mouth-feel. Clean, slightly sharp initial taste, with an enjoyable, but short finish.

Has a chemical flavour to it making for a very odd tasting drink. I doubt I will be having this beer again, but may be I will as it does improve the more you have.

Big disappointment. A friend remarked ’tastes like fried oysters’ which helps describe how odd this tasted. Not worth its price, though my review makes it sound worse than it is.
