Very good stout, good body, color and aroma. Bitterness at an ideal balance. BEERFINDER99 (2) - PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2001 does not count
VERY GOOD STOUT, ALOT SMOOTHER THAN GUINESS, AND NOT AS BITTER.............. canary dog (784) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - OCT 25, 2001
Typical widget beer (I am rating the canned version): smooth and soft, but not much in the flavor department. Seems a little weaker than Guinness. K-V-F-L (291) - LaVista, Nebraska, USA - OCT 16, 2001
Properly done stout, but no inspiration in it. It's Norman Rockwell when you want Monet. Smooth but lacks richness. wattoclone (149) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2001
I have been drinking Murphy's for 3 years from keg at home but switched to Beamish. It has better head, better color and better flavor. Guiness is good when I'm out at pub, but a little to powerful for day to day consumption.

the dryness of the stout is overcome by the choice of hopps ................ Kaya161 (1142) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 6, 2001
Beamish is the best of Ireland's big three hands down. This beer pours beatifully out of the can and the cascade seems to last forever. It has a chocolate, slightly roast coffee aroma and the flavour is sweet and smooth at first with a roasted bitterness in the finish. If only it were available more widely than Guinness or Murphy's. eczematic (1326) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2001
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2003 taste consists of thin soapy chocolatey malt body followed by vegemite on burnt toast. slightly sour, like guinness, which i dont mind in a lambic but prefer to do without in a stout. but at least it's not sweet. Darkover (1544) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2001
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2003 Weak and kind of smokey............................................
