Draught, so of course a massive creamy white head that never bothered to dissipate. This head was on top of an amber-coloured and clear liquid. Very inoffensive nose and taste. The malts (and I think caramel) came through in the taste, but it wasnít cloying as some caramelly beers are. Wasnít a bad ale, but not "an experience" either.

I had this beer on tap at a local pub. Beer has a creamy head that lasted from stat to finish. medium red color. I found this beer to have a very mellow taste and went down very smooth with little after taste

Bottled:
Fresh sourly aroma, bronze color. Some malt, light sherry note. Harsh bitter, long dry finish. Boring, unpleasant bitter beer.

Out of the can in Canada this beer isnít that bad. Creamy head seems to last forever. Little after-taste and a hint of malty flavor. Overall not a bad beer, there are worst things in the world!

highlandlad (1412) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2006 Mystifyingly popular Irish ale. Drunk in the UK by people who wish they liked Guinness and donít know any better. The sample from a can poured an amber colour with an improbable nitrogenated íwidgetí head. The poverty of the aroma hints at the mediocrity ahead. There are subdued toffee notes and some nuts. The canned version has the creamy mouthfeel that is typical of nitro canned ales. It goes a long way to disguise the fact that the beer is insipid. Thereís a little malt and a hint of toffee but very little finish. Dull dull dull. (Can with widget)

GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - FEB 13, 2005
Very Thick creamy head that lasts forever. Pours clear, light red/brown. Very faint corn aroma. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Moderate malty finish. This is an odd one....It looks great, feels very creamy but doesnít smell or taste that great...

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2005
Pours a reddish amber color and a very creamy white head that looks like milk. The aroma is very subtle, malt, toffee and hops. The flavor is also subtle with malt, toffee and hops. Full body, very creamy texture, soft carbonation. Not too bad but on the verge of ordinary.

I keep on drinking this, because the excellent mouthfeel and beautiful looks, I always expect it to be better. Really it tastes like water when the cafeteria woman didnít quite get all the skim milk out of the glass. It feels pretty great when itís just sitting in between the cheeks, though.

Iím pretty sure Iíve had this a bunch of times before. Found it at a UK bar in Nice,FR. Same consitency as guiness with a lighter color and flavor (if possible)

[widget can that someone abandoned in my fridge] Clear, dark reddish-amber with a cream "Guiness" head. Subdued aroma of mostly english hops with a little toffee and raisin. Flavour is hard to detect at first in this watery beverage, but eventually thereís grain, some toffee maltiness, and a hint of raisin. Well-balanced bitterness and some aluminium can notes. No fruit. Very thin body and low carbonation, but quite smooth and creamy.
