Une bonne bière assé douce et mi-amère, ce boit très bien en été. Meilleur que Smithwicks.

DuffMan (7148) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2006
Nitro-can. Nice dark tea-brown with a generous compact head. Faintly toffee aroma. Similar flavours of toasted malt in a lighter-bodied palate. Better than Caffrey’s and much better than Wexford.

Preferred this to Smithwicks, decent beer, although was bitter to finish, but strong beer overall.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Pours a darker amber color with small white head that lingers. Aroma of sweet malts, with a bit of hoppiness. Flavor follows aroma with a slightly bitter finish.

On tap. It wasn’t as good as Guinness’s other Irish ale Smithwicks, it is a bit too bitter for my taste.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Pours a medium amber/brown color. Aromas of caramel malts, minor hops, and a touch of wood. Flavor is burnt caramel, fruit and a smooth roast finish.

BrockLanders (774) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2005
On tap at some pub in Eindhoven. Poured a fairly dark amber with a small whitish head. Sweet malts in the nose...flavor is idential with a tinge of hop bitterness. Certainly not complex. Some caramel sweetness stays till the eagerly anticipated finish. Pretty boring ale. Another stunningly below-average offering from Guinness. If nothing else, they’re consistent.
