A unique mix of nitrogen and carbon dioxide helps create GUINNESS® Draught’s liquid swirl that tumbles, surges and gradually separates into a black body and smooth creamy head

    After 250 years, they must be doing something right. The first sight of the layered beer coming to my table made me feel like a kid getting a birthday cake. The thick cream and the deep, dark, rich and bitter flavor wake up the senses. "Less Filling" forget it. One does not drink this beer for it's health conscious brewing. I have tried many different bars, tapped, bottled and canned, in the states, but none have compared to the several I had on tap in London. The "mate" introduced me to Guinness Draught (served cold) on tap as well. By far the best beer I have had, and recommend to anyone willing to step away from the "lite" to endulge in the "Dark".

    One of, if not my number one favorite. Guinness is a well rounded well balanced beer with exceptional flavor. Without a doubt one of the all time best.

    Oh Guinness where would craft beer be without you getting us all to taste a little of the darker side of the beer world. We all remember that first sip and the feel of that creamy dark bitter liquid hitting our taste buds smack in the face. For some it was the last sip and for some it was the gateway to a whole new world of beer.

    The quality of a guinness brew depends on the pub. There is the art of the pour, temperature control, and consistency issues that can make one of the most delicious beers unable to live up to its reputation
