Imagine my surprise when I picked up my usual 2 cases. And noticed that its now in an American Pint size. Guinness did this a while back. I popped one open and thought it was flat. Poured it out and got another and that was the same: No longer brewed in Ireland this is now produced in Scotland. Now the Scots can make good beer. But this overly carbonated swill is NOT Murphys. Its taste is flat as any American beer eg Bud. Dreadful. So its back to Guinness for me. Which is a shame because Murphys was so much better than Guinness : A nice coco /coffee flavor , deep full body But alas no more.

Pours black with off white head - with red tint when held up to the light. Nitro smothers most aroma. Tastes relatively sweet for the dry stout style - flavour is of roasted malts

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent aroma with a lot of roastiness and some chocolate in the background. Could have been stronger. Very good looking head, creamy and lasts long (nitro). Tastes like a typical dry stout. Rather low bitterness, dry, thin body, incredible drinkability. Overall a beer to drink during a football game or during a meeting with friends in pub - very solid.

Tastes like a watered down Guinness. Not necessarily a bad thing as I love Guinness but I'd rather drink the real thing.
