Of course, we needed to drink Guinness on St. Patrick's Day, the best holiday of the year according to my late mother-in-law, Kathy Charsky, to go along with our slow-cooked corned beef & cabbage meal, so I anticipated picking up a few Guinness, in their fancy cans, for the husband & I, but I eyed these GFES bottles being re-stocked and couldn't resist checking them out. My logic went like this:
- It was 9:30am in RSVP beverage store, on the morning of March 17th, and they were already getting replaced on the shelf, so either the GFES are very popular or since the store just opened they were simply replacing what needed to be replaced.
- I went with my first thought and scooped up the 4pack of gold capped bottles for us to help celebrate our Irishness!
Taste: A delight mixture of roasted nuts that finishes with a slight tartness but it's not overpowering!
Color: robust brown
Thickness: Light and silky with a pretty caramel tan head of bubbles
