This 5.0% ABV beer is beer number one in the new Guinness Discovery Series. It uses Mosaic and Willamette hops. While Guinness is from Dublin, Ireland, this beer is brewed in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.
The beer pours amber in color. There is over an inch of thick and raggedly foamy head, white to off-white. The aroma is toasted and malty, touch of sweetness, with a strong note of straw and grass. The taste follows the aromas, and a fist fight breaks out between toasted and roasted malt, caramel malt, grass, straw and a touch and tang of fruitiness, with a pleasant mineral quality in the tail end. The finish is very dry and moderately bitter. The beer drinks crisp and refreshing. This is one hell of a good tasting lager and very drinkable.
