"Serve Extra Cold" only applies to wussies who have to have a beer that has ANY body to it ice cold. That is because their frail little taste buds can't handle the flavor of a REAL BEER and must be numbed by extreme cold temps!

Yeah... They make and package this particular label for the American Market.
You'd be hard pressed to find an ICE COLD Guinness in Ireland!

Next thing you'll be telling us to take the ice out of the single malt.

Actually, if you do a little reading, you'll find that it's only recently that Guinness is being marketed with the "chilled" label. It had to do with the younger drinkers not having their stones dropped yet enough to drink it warm and the widget needing cold temperatures to work properly. It doesn't spray quite so badly when the bottle is cold, but an old school Irishman drinks his Guinness warm.

bleh... Spent the day alternating between freezing cold Shiner, Coors, and Bud Lite depending on which Kayak I was by when it came time to grab abother. The beer was much colder than the freezing ass rain that was pouring on us while we were on the river.

Looks good...

Wish it was on my diet...

I'd make a Black and Tan out of it.

Don't care for Guinness - but I do make my own. Right now we've got 2 batches in the bottle-conditioning stage ("clones" of Rogue's Hazelnut Brown Ale and New Belgium's Fat Tire) and one in the first ferment (a hoppier ale).

Yeah, but tell the truth. I've been there and all over Europe. You'd be hard pressed to find "ANYTHING" ice cold over there. However Cain I have tried it warm, but poured it in an ice cold pint glass and I think that is pretty much the ticket right there.

I tried Sam Adams Cherry Wheat last night. IT WAS NASTY. Tasted like burnt cherry cobbler. I think I might have to pick up a 4 pack of the Guin tonight.

Have you ever had a small glass of Sam Adams Utopius? Expensive as hell, but my god! Served at room temp, it's... ah, very hard to describe. But very very satisfying.

Beer from a country that up until the 70's never had full sized refrigerators and still heated their homes with peat fires or coal ? My wife was raised over there, moved there from LI NY, they brought a full sized refrigerator and a full sized freezer with them, it was the 2nd wonder of the neighborhood, the front loading washer and dryer were the 1st.

I'm sorry, as much as I may support my Irish heritage, I have to draw the line at beer.

The Germans have it hands down, more specifically, the Bavarians. That culture has literally defined the word Beer (Bier) and the world just makes a bad copy of it.

I spent 3 months in Germany and my liver is still recovering from my last trip. IMHO --The Bavarian's just blow anything off the map (and they served it just below room temp) Their beer is awesome during their normal season, Octoberfest brings things to a whole new level..not to mention the alcohol content triples.

When I got back to the states, I could not even stomach the idea of an American beer or imports of any kind. I literally stop drinking beer....until I go back.

Might I suggest trying a beer that'll put hair between your toes?

http://www.greatlakesbrewing.com/bee...er_id=00000010

Great Lakes Brewing Company's "Blackout Stout" (link above).

Their others are good too, by the way.

Just my 2 cents.

It's just not the same as the beer in Bavaria.
