St. James’s Gate (Diageo) Guinness The 1759 – English Strong Ale at 9% ABV

St. James’s Gate (Diageo) Guinness The 1759 English Strong Ale at 9% ABV (C$31.57 at Specs Main Houston, 750 ml, bottle date 10-Sep-2014, reviewed 5-Apr-2016)

Appearance: clear deep amber to amber-brown with one finger of light beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: toffee and butterscotch, light smoke, slightly nutty. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (5/10) Palate: medium-full body, moderate carbonation, sweetish and slightly boozy finish. (3/5)

So I figured I’d keep going with my “pretentious beer by mainstream brewer” theme, and get this over with. Yeah… really not much to recommend this. Like an unremarkable Wee Heavy, more than anything. Really, really not worth the price of admission. (11/20)
