I would call this Guinness light but that would not really describe it well. This beer isnít lighter itís a bit sweeter and a little less sharp.

A good light stout. Very easy drinking beer. I like my stouts stronger, but this was good for something lighter.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2003
As I was saying before, this beer is a wonderful thing. A nice mapley malty taste, with a thick creamy head. I could taste a bit of a cocoa like undertone, with a nice satisfying dry finish.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2003 My Personal favorite beer, nothing is like a good old Murphy's Stout. Has a wonderful smooth head, and great color.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 served in a white plastic pittsburg steelers cup at the pittsburg airport..all i saw of this beer was creamy creamy tan cream..but i know what lurked beneath..the aroma had hints of chocolate & salty nuts..flavor was dry, peanut shell saltiness and some chocolate milk...mouthfeel was creamy..the carbination low..it was a tad watery..This is definitely better than guiness..although there is still a dry bitterness of a dry stout which makes me like all other stouts better..

uhorpheus (215) - houston, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2003
Better than Guiness. Extremely smooth head, very very creamy. Easy to drink, light and refreshing, cleansing aftertaste very different from Guiness. Pretty good stout.

thebaron99 (110) - Royston Park SA, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2003
Canned: Aroma of malt, biscuits and cement. Pretty widget appearance ie; creamy head and tiger stripes while settling. very dry mouthfeel with burnt butter flavour. Toasty and tasty. Still prefer Guinness.
