In Epcot (Disney World) and I gotta say that it was pretty darn good. Being raised on "ice cold" brew, this was a step outside the box for me. Pretty foamy, tased almost like cold coffee. But it was a good sipping drink. Will have to search for this stuff at local grocer. Kudos to Guiness. not bad.

Bitter? That's a new one, huh?

Room temp beer is a great way to actually "taste" the beer for any faults. It's kinda like listening to a geetar player on an acoustic instead of a distorted electric twanger.

I just read a bit about it. The reviews aren't that good. It's an English Bitter. I think they made it taste like that for a reason. :hihi:

Oh well, thankfully I am too hardheaded to listen to others. I'll try it if I can find it.

i actually did not like it for the first two or three sips, but it kinda grew on me. And it actually got better the longer it stayed in the cup. (for me anyway ) It definately not a beer you can funnel or play drinking games too, but a nice beer with dinner that will last the whole dinner.

Try the Guiness in the tall can. They have a unique nitrogen cartridge in the bottom of the can that discharges when you open it. Look into the bottom of the can after you empty it. It makes for a fine pint.

Well, if it's supposed to be a type of English Bitter, then I would have to think that it's the same way especially how people have described the head.
