440ml Nitro Can from SuperValu (Ireland - £1.69):
Bland malts and a little sweetness from some brown sugar, there is a very faint and almost water like smell with some bitterness at the end.
Thick and quite creamy too before settling to a dark caramel brown colour with a very creamy, darkish white head on top that is about the width of a pinky and holds very well.
Bland with some malts and light caramel flavours and a sugary sweetness following this. There is a burnt toast and nutty flavour. The beer is quite bitter and very creamy.
Creamy with a medium to full body yet it still feels slightly watery. The beer seems quite bland and there is almost no carbonation with some small amounts of bitterness at the end.

Great looking beer when poured and settled but everything else about it was fairly average sadly. The aroma was bland and unexciting, definitely not an ale worth looking out for. I’m not sure if it would be better on draft and I’m not sure if I really want to find out either.It was drinkable and the nitro can was a plus.

Red Amber color. Part of holiday 8 can pack. Bland and sweet. Decent body for 4.3% ABV. $12.99 for 8 pack was reasonable.

bouteille 33cl. Rousse légére, un peu neutre, lègère amertume, manque un peu de caractère .

A decent beer but definitely prefer the original Guinness. A "ketchup-y" taste. Love the nitro beers but it's a nice change from the original. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AbouAli (88) - Genève, SWITZERLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Goût de mal torréfié limite malt fumée très léger. Sensation plutôt aqueuse. Belle rondeur mais ne reste pas en bouche la mousse est pas mal. La bière est plus belle que bonne.

On tap. Red colour, clear liquid, minimal white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Light body. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. Weak and watery. Nothing too exciting.
