      Overall Impression (2½)
      Black, big brown head. Black malt aroma, with alcohol. Watney's house flavor. Tastes like a black Red Barrel. Tastes like bottled Guinness, only lighter in body.

      Overall Impression (1½)
      Golden-amber, OK head and carbonation. Sweet, bland aroma. Tastes just like the Samuel Smith's Pale, maybe a little lighter. Wonder what the hops are? I'd like to avoid them.
