John Pritchard's Guinness

Despite a number of invitations, John never collected his Guinness. I thought I had better check it was still OK before I contacted him again.

Considering how lively it was when it was conditioning there was no fizz when I opened the bottle.

I did get a good head on it though.

The head didn't last long but there is still a slight prickle of carbonation.

It has that bitter, almost burnt hit of the real black stuff & a thick texture with a pleasant smokey finish.

Considering we just ran off a few bottles 11 weeks ago I think this is an unexpected treat.

And John, if you're reading this, I have the other 2 bottles still available.

  1. I also have a load of Christmas ale in my garage, I'm not sure if John ever had his share.
