Ahh, Guinness. Probably the single most varied experience depending on location and serving type out of any beer worldwide. And that’s the problem with this stuff – the search for consistency.
In this particular case (the “draught” nitro bottle) we are treated to something that looks like “draught” Guinness but that’s about where the similarities end. This stuff has a watered down smoothness and is consequently less heavy the “draught”. It means that the taste, mouthfeel and general experience are not comparable to real draught, but it does make this stuff incredibly drinkable in significant quantities! What I’ve always liked about Guinness, is that for a stout, it is light. I like the relative blandness and drinkability that I find more challenging in some of the heavier stouts. Certainly less flavor, but easier to consume in quantity.
