I am going to review Guinness Draft not as a beer snob but as a home brewer.  I don't drink much beer I buy because I brew enough mead and beer for myself and probably my friends too :-).      Guinness is one of those underrated beers which is great in part because of how it subtly differs from other stouts.  Folks either love stouts or hate the burned bitterness that characterizes them.  But Guiness goes a step further by adding a signature tanginess which …

Everyone's heard of Guinness. even if you don't drink beer, you've heard of Guinness.  As the gentleman in the TV ads would say, their marketing is, "brilliant!" Unfortunately, their beer is awful!      The Pour   Upon pouring this into a pint glass, the first reaction is, “This is one beautiful beer!”  When you first pour it, it looks brown in the glass as it comes alive in the glass and releases bubbles into a gorgeous very light beige …

For me, the darker the better!!! If I can stand a spoon up in it, it is good to go!!! Great bitter taste. However, consider the fact that my favorite beer is free beer, and my all time favorite beer is, cold free beer!!!

Great in Ireland, esp. Dublin but awful in the rest of the world. I'm no beer drinker but like it on the tap (in Ireland, ie)!

This stuff reminds me of used motor oil. Gross!
review by . February 27, 2009
I'm not too into dark beers, but Guinness does have a pretty nice, crisp finish.  I prefer it as part of a "black and tan" (half Guinness, half Bass Ale) but can certainly finish one or two pints of Guinness if I'm up to it.    One thing I've found is that it tastes INFINITELY better when it's super cold.  So if you're a slow sipper, you may find that the last few sips might be a little warm and not as tasty.  So bottoms up!

How a truly poured Guinness should look.
I have to begin by saying that I'm a little bias when it comes to beer. There are so many beers that I haven't tried, but of the ones that I have had, I can be very picky. I don't really care for American beers like Budweiser, Coors, Busch, etc. I really tend to enjoy mostly European beers. With that said, my view may be a little skewed.    I've tried Guinness several times over the years. It's of course a very dark beer, and has a strong taste that has never interested me. I've …

Guinness is one of my favorite beers.  The thick, creamy brew feels like you're almost drinking a dessert.  Interestingly enough, a Guinness has less calories than the same amount of a regular beer, so it's good for girls who want to avoid calories when going out.  I love drinking one or two with my guy friends and really savoring the taste.  Although I've heard it's a million times better in Dublin, it's still a lot better then most domestic beers in the US.  "Lovely day …
