Had this on tap and loved it probably one of my favorite beers ever so easy to drink. This cream ale pours a nice ruby red with a little yellow in the light. Nice white two finger head with a one finger that lingers. The smell is nice of roasted malts and cream just smooth all around. The taste is of malts and smoothness if that is a taste a bit watery if you concentrate to hard. A great offering for this style and good job for a Guinness brew. The mouthfeel is smooth and carbonated with just a little fizz nice and easy to take down a really nice session beer with the low ABV what a great brew to just sit back and enjoy with friends. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber red with a foamy white head. Yeasty, very noticable hops. Not much aroma to it, or maybe it’s hard to signify it. Not as good as the original Guiness but an easy to drink pilsener style beer.

milewide (1580) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 16, 2014
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.

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 (102) - 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.
