Donnybrook Stout

From notes, from a draft offering at The Brick Store, Decatur, GA, USA.
Here’s the deal – by all means make a sessionable, simple, low ABV beer (the lack of these type of beer is what I am pretty much constantly lamenting here in the US), BUT that’s not an excuse to brew a beer that is frankly thin and bland and lacking taste.
Very poor effort for me all the way around. The mouthfeel is VERY thin, and the taste lacks character – I wasn’t expecting much depth, but there was very little taste.
Again, no problem with a sessionable beer (in fact quite the opposite), but this was a poor effort. It takes time to make strides in brewing beers like this to a high level, and this is going to be a job for Victory, and a work in progress.
