    I'm going to dare to say this, but Guiness isn't a good pint of beer, it's just a below average Stout, and a lesson in some amazing marketing. Oh, and it tastes just as ordinary in Dublin as anywhere else. The Porterhouse (microbrewery) had vastly improved versions of stout and porter. I also had some Smithwicks Ale (brewed by Ginuess) which was fucking awful.

      the next time i'm in london i say we prove your point by tasting some good english stout :)

      i'm still partial to guinness, especially as a closer like weary memory mentioned.

      americans are crazy about it, so yeah, a marketing triumph, indeed. if you are ever feeling really self-hating, try the canned version sold here in convenience stores...barf.

      It's an acquired taste, like blonde beer. Leffe is awesome.

      I'll not have a bad word said about the good pint. To me all stouts in the porterhouse just taste like bad guinness...taste I suppose is subjective. I love the stuff.
