I've seen this at the store and my feeling was that it is really taking a chance in terms of their branding. The biggest thing that Guiness has going for it is a reputation for doing one thing very well. I doubt I'll try it.

That would be my reason. The beer itself I would try, though I'd never feel the need to buy it. I like Guinness but I think they are diluting the brand. Although I thought black lager was too far...

fair enough-i'm not at all inclined to let marketing or branding or whatever deter me from giving it a taste.

anyway, perhaps I may be the first to report back  ;D

I owe someone some Guinness on a bet.  Perhaps I'll get the blonde lager.  It's Guinness after all, isn't it?

I'll generally give their offerings a try, but none of them have stuck with me.  Didn't they do some sort of special anniversary stout awhile back?  Or was that the black lager?

You'll never catch me driving down the street in a Porsche sedan drinking a Guiness blond lager.

Bingo. Was thinking the same thing. I don't drink Harp, either.

actually harp is euro pale lager  , guiness blonde is "american lager" - now whether it is or not is debatable.

anyway, no shame in my game living outside the prison walls.

So Guinness's lager is Harp-lite? Sounds even less appealing now. No judgment - just not my thing.
