Probably safe to say that it will be as unspectacular as the original Guiness.

I just couldn't get over how the Irish in Dublin drink that like it's their own version of BMC Light.

I believe Guinness has always had a lager in their portfolio. As a matter of fact, Revvy posted a Guinness ad from years ago advertising it. Not sure if it was ever available here.

Zixxer, the BJCP disagrees with your opinion, considering Guinness Draught (and canned), is the first example listed for the Dry Stout category. Guinness Draught is the reason you won't find too many craft examples of regular dry stout. They can't compete, and its not worth trying.

I have never seen it before. Can't wait to give it a try. Guinnes has always been my "go to" beer. Really like the extra stout.

I have noticed the lagers are extremely popular in the UK. That an cider. Kinda makes me sad. In the motherland of ale. I am not a big lager guy either won't be rushing out to try it.

It does sounds like a schwarzbier to me. I'll give it a try, Guinness has always been a backup beer for me. And Guinness Foreign Export Stout is damn tasty.

FES is honestly my favorite stout, by far.
