Drinkers Bitter Over 'Fast' Guinness

Drinkers Bitter Over 'Fast' Guinness

Quote:
Plans by British drinks giant Diageo to cut the time needed to pour the perfect pint of Guinness stout were met with cries of "blasphemy" in the beer's homeland on Saturday.


In a bid to revive declining sales, the makers of Ireland's national tipple are testing a new pouring system which they say will slash the waiting time on a pint to 15-25 seconds from the traditional two minutes.

Their bright idea of selling Guinness in bottles isn't so great, either.

Guiness in a bottle

I agree. The first time I ever had Guiness was in a bottle. I thought it was the most rank, disgusting thing I ever tasted. I didn't get hooked until I tried it from the tap. The cans with the CO(2) canisters are much better, but still nothing like the original.
