I could sum up my impresssion with one statement: Reminds me of beast. I will expand, however...It has a yeasty, grainy flavor that is not pleasant, although not quite as offensive as Beast. It smells EXACTLY like it, but its large head helps makes up for it slightly (even though it is foamy, not creamy). Straw to Copper color. Dry, slightly bitter, beery (you know what I mean) aftertaste. Guinness should seriously consider divesting this brand name. A disgrace.

Excellent lager. Full flavor with very little bite.

I first bought this simply because it was Irish, and hey, the Irish make good beer, right? Well, its not horrible, but not great either. Has a bit of a bitterness that doesnít really follow into the aftertaste. For the price, Boston Lager is a lot better.

I remember enjoying this, but after trying it again after a while, I was really underwhelmed. Found it lacked much flavor at all; kind of reminded me of an MGD thatís a bit more drinkable.

Use to be one fantastic beer. Now it is brewed in Canada and tastes like every other Canadian beer.. They ruined it like they ruined Foster Lager. Someone needs to let Guinness know.

I always forget how good this beer can be. Tastier than most American lagers. Definetely recommend.

A very ordinary lager. Sours easily when left on tap.
