Is Guinness Draught a good beer?
Overall: “The nose promised more than the beer provided. Somewhat light bodied with a roast character that dominates and a bit of creaminess to balance. Tannic harshness is too high—could use a bit less bittering or a touch more body to mellow it out. But the more you drink it, the more you enjoy it.”
Is canned Guinness any good?
It’s, quite simply, excellent. Now, a can of Guinness is not as good as it is on draught in pubs, but that is to be expected. Canned beer will never be as good. It’s not as thick as the pub variety and the head can’t quite compete with what a tap produces, but this really is great.
