Guinness was my gateway beer to craft beer. We went on our honeymoon to Ireland and spent 2 weeks driving around the island. Every night involved Guinness, and by the end of my 2 weeks, I was hooked, and started exploring other beers when we came back to the US. Years later, after visiting the Guinness Brewery in Dublin, I enjoyed Guinness in their brewery pub and it was phenomenal. This homebrew recipe I got from a guy’s YouTube channel where he pretty much relayed the same Guinness experience and thought this recipe was pretty close.
Mild aroma of dark malt, with hints of hops in the background. Taste is crisp and gives the tastebuds a minor kick as it hits the tongue. Mellows almost immediately and then the malt & yeast fade out slowly. Flavorful and refreshing.
