Brewery: Guinness Blonde (Ireland)
Type: American Lager
Thoughts: I actually tried pretty hard to dislike this beer. From the get-go I thought this beer would be a mix of two things I don’t particularly like: Guinness and American Lager.
Appearance: Nice golden shine to the beer. Medium to heavy carbonation. A nice fresh metallic smell.
Taste: It’s minorly acidic but smooth. Very soft and gentle hops- the front of the can talks about the hops but as expected from Guinness this is a malt first beer. Very nice balance of flavour and malt. There is not a lot to hate- some nice subtle flavours hiding behind a simple beer. I would be comfortable bringing six of these to a BBQ.
