Guinness Draught 4.2° - Can 50cl
Black body, yellow creamy head, very persistent. Wonderful creamy texture of the foam (due to nitro, I know). Moderate roasted aromas, somewhat buttery. Beer tastes tastes bitter and sour. Bitterness coming partly from hops, partly from strongly roasted malt. Sourness makes it refreshing. Some dark chocolate in the background. Long lasting bitter aftertaste. Palate is very mild and watery: this is not a strong beer. In summary, this is a rather simple, easy to drink, refreshing beer. Yet, despite its simplicity, this is so well composed (with a perfect balance between the strong coffee like roasted bitterness and the bit of sourness) that this is still a very enjoyable classic.
