Vegans have forced a change in the recipe for Guiness.

Fortunately, it only affects the brewery in Ireland.

I always wondered what made it taste like crap. :wink: I thought it might just be the Guinness brewed in the US. Well I had one in a pub in London that was built in 1400s or so. It still taste like crap. :D :D

Well Rev,
Lets just say I have drank a few beers in probably 20 different countries while either visiting or living in them.. Yea our beer isn't the best when compared to some of the Britt and German beer.
Bottom line and from a BeerO. Guinness still taste like CRAP and yea I have drank some of the worlds best DARK BEER.
So where have you drank beer to be the expert??? :wink: :wink:
Another topic you don't have a clue aboutIMHO

You don't need to be overseas to drink and/or appreciate imported beers ... I figured you'd realize that ....

Anybody who says Guinness tastes like crap is clearly in the overwhelming minority or just plain doesn't know beers. Sorry. Maybe you can enlighten us on what a good beer is ....

No Rev Imported beer is never as good as it is in the country of origin. The long boat ride just doesn't do it justice. May be why they put formaldehyde in it to preserve some of it. :wink:

I'm not much of a beer drinker, alas. I prefer an occasional glass of whiskey: Jim Beam's Devil's Cut, Jack Daniels, and (when I can afford it) that sweet nectar of the Great White North, Crown Royal.

Can't say I was impressed with Guinness, the one time I tried it. And most of the domestic beers, to me, taste like they need to be poured back into the horse. Except Budweiser; the poor Clydesdales' kidneys are clearly in terrible shape as it is . . . :p

Now if I could find a domestic source for Stuttgarter Hofbrau, Kloister Schwarzbrau or the Czech-brewed Budweiser Budvar (I'm told the latter is called "Czechvar" on this side of the Atlantic, to avoid confusion with that awful crap bottled in St. Louis; for similar reasons, American Budweiser is called "Bud" in Europe) that might be a different story . . . :wink:

I remember drinking Singha in northern Thailand many years ago...you could actually taste the formaldehyde. Now THAT was a hangover.
Yet that that you get in the US is just fine. Probly something about pure food and all that...

If you bought it and gave it to me that is always the best beer. I do have to say the worst beer I ever tried to drink was in Marseille FR. We were on liberty and stopped at the first local pub we came to. Ordered up our beers, they only had one brand, it was European cold and initially tasted OK. Well after drinking about half of what would be about a 24 oz. beer here we started looking at each other a little funny and I finally spoke up and asked, are y'alls lips getting numb? It was a 100% yes, and my tongue felt like I had been to the dentist for a root canal. Don't remember the name of the beer or know what was in it but it was weird stuff.

As far as Guinness I can handle a black and tan every once in a while. But as I said, free beer is the best beer.

C'mon now Rev.
First even though Guinness is subjectively ranked at the top of that list, it still also has the most down votes of the top 10, which means he's not in the overwhelming minority. Secondly everyone knows most tastes, and alcohol especially, are incredibly subjective. Good, expensive beer, wine, etc. doesn't always mean best - or tastes best - to anyone, and ranking them is just illogical. Personally I'm not a big beer drinker, I'll have one every couple months, but I generally like darker beers and I dislike Guinness. It's like starbucks coffee to me, just tastes burnt and overdone.

This comment is pure insanity. There are more different types of beer in this country then ever. IPAs, malts, pilsners, etc. etc.. There has never been a period in American history where you had a greater selection of beer. This is not a guess, opinion, theory. It is a fact.

Go to your local brew pub. You will find some have hundreds of world wide beers/ales. Hell I know one in San Antonio that has 101 on draught. Sorry for the education but this is just wrong. Go to Denver, Portland, Seattle, San Diego, San Antonio, Dallas, Kansas City...you will find every beer known to man and they sale very well. Go ahead and give it a try. You will never find the end of different brews.
