LAGERS

Guinness Black Lager

Designed to lure pale beer drinkers over to the dark side, Guinness Black Lager is not a lighter version of the brand's famous stout, but a whole different beer. Instead of stout's creamy thickness and full body, black lager offers the crisp carbonation and light hops of its paler cousins. Yet, it still retains some of the stout's roasted barley character, which gives the lager its dark color and fuller flavor. At just 4.5 percent alcohol by volume, Guinness Black Lager works great as a session beer and adds welcome diversity to the Irish brewery's stout-heavy line-up.
