Bottle. Pours a clear amber brown body under a small wispy off-white head. The nose is pretty nondescript, just some light caramel sweetness and just a bit of hoppiness. The flavor is fairly bland and boring as well, sweet caramel and toasty malt with a minimal floral hop note on the finish. Medium bodied with lots of fizzy carbonation. Just comes across and. Little too bland and boring. AnokaBrewer (223) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2016
14.9 ounce can. Pours a clear brown with a tan foamy head that holds throughout the beer. Not a lot of aroma. Roasted malt flavor and sweet. Just enough hops to balance it, but nothing discernible. BobbyAnalog (334) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 10, 2012
It’s like Guinness Foreign Extra Stout that has been kicked in the balls. The obligatory Guinness creamy mouthfeel is replaced by a fizzy, meandering consistency. There isn’t that special pop from the Extra Stout, either. The Generous ale comes off as more of a seasonal phone-in than an artisan offering. Still, it’s perfectly mediocre rather than awful. jb (3414) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Irish session stuff through and through. Though really more of a Brit bitter actually. Reddish brown, malts dominate nose and taste, a bit of caramel malt helps. Okay. radio_nowhere (1474) - Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2013
12oz bottle from Guinness holiday variety pack. Poured into pint glass, clear ruby-ish brown color with minimal off-white head. Aroma of toasty caramel malt. Taste is the aroma balanced with some decent grass hops. Light body, average carbonation, smooth, balanced, some lingering grass afterwards. Decent.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2015 Pours a deep red brown with an off white head that leaves "Generous" lacing. Nose is spice. The palate is medium body. The taste is slight roasted malt.14.9 oz can BeerdedDave (1875) - Beckley, USA - NOV 18, 2014
can; deep amber to light brown color; toasted malt aroma with light fruit and spice notes; fruity, bready, toasted malt flavor with spice notes - maybe nutmeg or cinnamon fakebeersnob (325) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Was expecting more from a Guiness sampler pack. Appearance was a little tough as in a dark location. Slight vanilla scent. First drink reminded me a bit of pumpkin (though not a pumpkin ale), but might be due to slight spice in it. I do like the smooth mouthfeel. Decent, but also forgettable.

Canned. Poured medium amber with a short-lived head. The aroma picked up lots of vanilla and nutty notes, with a bit of toasted character. The flavor found similar, picking up a little molasses.. more vanilla on the finish. Lighter-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation.. OK feel. brokensail (16648) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 25, 2015
Can @ home. Thanks, Boost. Cooper pour with a khaki head. Aroma is big on bread, toast, and grass. Not terribly fragrant. The flavor is just kind of toasty and grainy. Grassy and slightly bitter finish. A decent bit of bready malts. Ok.
