I am, and have been for quite some time, a Guinness Stout drinker which is now brewed exclusively in Dublin, Ireland.
I have and will drink most alcoholic beverages. I’m currently enjoying the clean crisp taste of Grolsch Lager. Most Lagers are brewed in the UK under licence. Therefore a french beer, such as Kronenberg, is actually brewed here. Same with the likes of Fosters, Grolsch, or Budweiser. This is not such a bad thing as they use the imported hops and barley of the original.
Unfortunately, Guinness is best enjoyed from draft. Some of the versions in cans are too fizzy and weak tasting. There is even a version you need a vibrating plate to get it to act like draft.
Luckily there is a porter that the good folks at Guinness brew which, when bottled is excellent. Yes it’s a little fizzy, but that’s the way a porter should be. Sweeter than regular Stout, less bitter, less astringent, some say it’s got a chocolaty taste?
I’m a big fan of this beverage. Many, many bottles have been consumed and I would attest to loving the Porter style beer.
Will have to try their West Indies Porter
