I've met one lad in my life who was a complete beer snob. One. I've met about fifty blowhards going on about beer snobs.
It only takes one. The effects can be profound though.

Long ago someone tried to convert me to Guinness by lacing it with blackcurrant. They failed.

It's actually pretty light and bland when you consider that people think it is a very heavy drink. It has a slightly bitter taste (from dark malts) and a little twang, I think they let some of the wort (water and steeped malt) sour a little bit and add it at the end.

You are probably correct, the sharp words should be saved for the management... who are encouraging them to be selling product instead of just serving what people ask for, what they like and are keen to enjoy.

Creamy, burnt coffee and roast malt kinda taste. It's generally not advised to go into long, detailed descriptions of a pint. It is what it is.

You can acknowledge a good pint but don't overdo it.

Now would be a good time to go, they’re all “down here” at the minute.

Was in the zoo there last week. The place was “crawling” with them. All screeching and shouting after wee Malachy, Ultan, Sammy and Alfie.

It's likely that particular craft was an unsuitable pair with oysters, especially pre washed with Guinness.
You've got to get the pairing spot on. Depending on atmospheric pressure too. Perhaps it was a mild day which interfered with the je ne sais wha of the bottle

As to what does Guinness tastes like - It depends.

Any Guinness drinkers I know say it changes from place to place and even pub to pub! They claim that one pub serves a 'bad' pint and another a good one!


How can this be?
