Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
as you might imagine, my main idea of Guinness is from the beer. Which has sadly been messed about with to the extent that I won't touch it these days.

the loss of "real" bottled Guinness was terrible, but the loss of the comparator allowed them to change the keg stuff quite radically. Much less bitter and correspondingly sweeter and softer. It's just mush now.

Colman took me to the Guinness museum a couple of years back and I honestly felt horrified by the experience. Less a beer and more the "marketing experience formerly known as Guinness".

But that's the inevitable result of the corporate encroachment that Sanders pioneered I guess.

It's funny now that they're trying to jum on the Craft bandwago now. Rather than messing about trying to do all the modern stuff everybody else is doing, I kinda think it'd be nice if they produced the beer they made 25 years ago. Cos that'd still be a great beer.

keep to the Fen Causeway
