Beer Review (1): Guinness

Here comes the first part of a loose series of short beer reviews. The test object today was actually not a British beer, but an Irish: Guinness

1. External characteristics:

Its colour is black, the froth is beige and is actually not a 'real' froth, but has more or less the consistency of cream, looks a little bit ugly when it comes out of the tap.

2. Taste:

The froth tastes as bad as it looks like. The beer itself is much better, although for me it is a little bit too bitter. Especially the aftertaste is … well, could be better.


All in all: 6 out of 10

  1. Where did you try it? The quality of Guinness can be very variable. It takes a couple of drinks to get used to the taste, but when you do, a good one is very, very good!

  2. I had it in 'the bar'.
    After a view beers nearly everything tastes good… For that reason, I test the first one! (But it wasn't the first Guinness of my life, if you mean that!)
