Here’s a really new beer! Not just new to me, but new new new – not sure if you have it in the States yet!
Guinness Black Lager? Why, what, how?
To me, it tastes like a home-brewed stout. Not as heavy as a bottled, carbonated, stout made by a big company, say, like Diageo. Not much head, and not much bitter after taste like a true stout, either. It was very smooth, and one definitely tasted like having another. If we’d had more than four on hand, it might have been a hard morning the next day!
Pretty. Even the packaging looks frosty cold and ready to drink.
See, not a stout’s creamy head at all. I’d have it again, when I’m off my low-carb diet again. It’s still pretty decent for you compared to most lager with 11 carbs and 135 calories a bottle, even if a bit mild in strength if you’re a good alky like me: 4.5 percent. A little stronger than Guinness stout, which the net tells me is 125 calories and 10 carbs but only 4%.
Try it if you can!
I’m not used to such a darker color with beer!
Right, then – go get some! They have to have at least Guinness over there? Get the Draught version – it isn’t carbonated exactly, it’s a mix of nitrogen and carbon dioxide so it isn’t hard popping bubbles but nice and soft. This one is just carbon dioxide, but yeah, it was good!
I’ll look around the stores here tomorrow! Who knows they got some. 😉
Or you could save your first taste of Guinness for when you vist Ireland 🙂 It DOES taste best here!
Have no doubt this one will find its way to our fridge. Thanks for the heads up
Hope so! Let me know what you think!
I think you can get this around DC. There’s an independent grocery which boasts 1000 beers near me, I’ll go look.
Ooo! Lucky you. It’s not a single malt, but still quite nice!
Here in Canada, anything under 5% is called Light by the manufacturers and water by the consumers. I’m pretty sure the Guinness Draught is at least 5% here, but I’ll check at the store tomorrow and return to you.
