    This is by far one of my favorite beers. It has such a smooth taste with no aftertaste. The only problem with Guinness is that it may be too delicious and then befor you know it you are in the bag...

    To say the Guinness is a classic is an understatement, my Irish-American sensibilities are telling me to simply get on top of the tallest building and yell at everyone and tell them simply how great this beer is but I’ll refrain… For now.

    All I can really say about Guinness Draught that hasn’t already been said a dozen times is that it truly does get better the closer you get to Dublin. Guinness from the brewery is absolutely amazing! I’d fly back to Dublin just for the beer…

    Many say it is an acquired taste but those many have no taste for beer. With a creamy head and full body, Guinness has an amazing finish that can be compared to little else.

    The classic. Arguably the most beautiful pour out there, with a creamy white head topping a dark-as-night body. The aroma of roasted barley and fresh bread is nice but light, while the dry flavor has always been a little nutty to me yet strong and smooth. As a young beer drinker, it always filled me up too quickly, but now I consider it a proper session beer that goes well with just about any pub food.

    Really, world wide Guinness has set standards in appearance advertising and overall product quality. While not the best stout on the market it is "the". Also you've got a good chance of picking it up anywhere, like budweiser, but not a pint of piss.
