Great appearance. Flavor is okay; a little too bitter for my taste. I had hopes that it would have a body similar to Guinness, but it is a bit watery .

Very creamy hovever I found when Iíve had it, I got a watery aftertaste. But it has a great initial taste to it. I used to drink this beer alot before I knew what else the world had to offer.

This is a very nice beer to admire. A copper version of guinness. The taste is very smooth with a little hint of bitterness. The only downfall it has is that you can really taste the alcohol in the aftertaste.

Amber colour. Dying head. Strong not interesting sweet malty aroma. More bitter taste and palate. Average.

Not ready for a guinness yet ? --- Try this: bitter, fruity and irish.

This used to be very good. Iíve had both the draught and draught can. It has been re-formulated, and I think that they should go back to the original!
