The beer pours amber in color, clear after the nitro surge subsides. There is an inch of perfectly creamy head, off-white to very, very light tan. The aroma is roasty, caramel, light fruits, with a mineral tang. The taste follows the aromas, light caramel, lightly roasted malt, just a touch of dark plum-like fruit, with that signature mineral tang of Guinness made products. It drinks extremely smooth and creamy. This is mild, but very pleasant.
