My friend told me they were bringing out a new Guinness….
Me and my pal used to neck a lot of guinness – and this in particular was very exciting for me.
However, this is not the beer he was referring to, and I am still hoping to get my hands on what he was referring to.
However, I’ll give this a go.
Rather plain in comparison to the usual hard hitting guinness… Pretty good hops and some good old biscuits…. Feels like its a middle man, between the classic and the new age… Slightly disappointing in all honesty.
Eaerthy, proper malty beer this one.
Mans beer. No fruityness IMO, but just biscuits and malt.
Decent, I quite like it – but shan’t be buying a case of it
Not impressed with this.
Some of the Duchy brand is very nice indeed. But this. Well, a bit bland. I got taste of citrus and some sort of biscuity taste. I also get some metaly taste, copper perhaps.
It’s okay. But not great and I certainly wouldn’t pay the usual high Duchy prices.
Shan’t be buying this again.
About time I tried something different. So found this in a local store and thought, hmmm, Australians don’t do many ales surely. They’re all lager.
This is a small bottle (375ml) picking a fight with its 5.8% content. It’s pretty pale in colour but extremely cloudy, with a good head which quickly disappears. I have high hopes (or am I just thirsty)
It’s standard. Plain. Refreshing. A bit citrusy. Not sure I would call it an ale, but a rounded lager. It would rate very highly as a lager.
There’s not much in a way of flavour but it would certainly do in a hot summers day picnic.
Okay I say. But that’s it.
