My drink of choice while at the Village Inn, while hanging with brother in Celbridge .. . 2 per half, the guinness charm but the abv made it that after the game we watched, i could still go home and open some bottles... i’d gladly have this on draft in my home, in every room!!

On tap in Kildare. Colour ruby red almost black with a thick white head. Exactly the same look as a classic guinness. Taste close enough too. It’s just a little bit more watery and a not as well balanced . Overall I was impressed.

The head is robust, the body is stable. It smells roasty, darkmalty, creamy, foamy, nice! The taste is creamy, less carbonation, roasty, darkmalty, full bodied, nice. Almost as good as the normal Guinness Draught. One of the best low alcohol beers I had! 14/13/12/13/-/13

Enjoyed a pint in oasis letterkenny followed after a full strength which not having had one for awhile tasted pretty bland and mediocre, so the mid strength that followed was pretty much the same in my book, but nice to have a pint without getting buzzed too quick you could pace yourself with a few of these in between, would go back for more

Definitely the best low ABV beer in the world, this is basically indistinguishable at first sip from standard Guinness Draught/Draft, somewhat more watery and perhaps a touch less of the chalk/hop deep balance of the original

garthicus (2937) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 7, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2007 At 2.8 per cent proof, the mid-strength product is lower in alcohol than Guinness Light was (3.6 per cent). The crucial difference is that mid-strength Guinness is designed to look and taste as close as possible to the regular 4.2 per cent brew. Pours identical to regular Guinness, aroma a little lighter. Has a lighter taste than regular Guinness however is certainly very good. I would not choose it over regular Guinness however it may appeal to people who are driving or cutting back on alcohol but still want to enjoy a pint of Guinness. Nice enough.

mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2009
[2194-20090523] Tap. Mild roast grains aroma. Black body with a thick very long-lasting creamy mocha head and some lacing. More coffee up front in the flavour with bitter roasted grains and nice toast notes. Medium-full body is a tad watery. Nice, a little more bitter than the regular.

Sigmund (7766) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2017
Keg pint at Beaumont House, Dublin. Black colour, the standard Guinness nitro head. Aroma and flavour nearly indiscernible from the regular Guinness. Much better than I feared.

jercraigs (10651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2009
2009-05-23. Ruby tinged black body, creamy tan head and lace. (4+) Dry roasty aroma like a bowl of roast barley and coffee beans. Muted touches of mocha. (6+) Flavour is similar to Guinness, seems a touch more dilute overall, but almost a touch more dry roast to it at times. Less mocha than the regular? (6+) Smooth average palate. About what you would expect a light version of Guinness to taste like. Okay. On tap at Guinness Storehouse, Dublin

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2012
In can, thanks Craig. A black beer with a thick and creamy light tan head. An aroma of chocolate and roasty malt. Similar flavours of chocolate and roasted barley with lingering caramel also. Very easy to drink. Thin compared to the regular version with a creamy mouth-feel.
