I've never understood the appeal of Guinness. Guess my tastebuds just aren't that refined. It tastes like burnt motor oil to me.
Guinness in the US might be different from the authentic stuff LG drinks.
Regarding tastes in beer, most Americans seem to like large quantities of the cheap, mass-produced stuff that's the equivalent to Kraft cheese slices.
The stuff I drink is more like extra-sharp cheddar.
I've had a few pints in Europe but not in the UK. I remember it tasting a little better but I just can't get past that burnt taste.
Only one place to drink Guinness , gods own country , done the Guinness brewery tour this year ,for first time , amazing to see the history and the size of consumption worldwide , Guinness had private railways and fleets of sail and steamer ships at turn of last century , ( hard to believe that Guinness is sold in most countries worldwide , no matter what beer is on offer ,Guinness is always part of the choice ) the beauty of Guinness to me is the non gas , allowing you to drink more without being bloated ( the god fearing members will strike me down for that statement) it also numbs the body from the toes upwards , allowing singing and talking bull shite for longer periods of time , also cuts down on toilet visits , which is handy after 7/8 pints ,as legs no longer work
