The most important thing is, they had Guinness! Even if it was in cans. I'm getting thirsty just thinking about a pint of Guinness. It must be getting close to beer thirty....
Cheers

on the other side of the spectrum is when i was liberty-portin' it (is that a real phrase? for the purpose of this anecdote it is!)in Plymouth, England and some of the pubs there had Guinness on tap and Guinness Extra Cold. They're exactly the same with the exception of the temperture. This was the only place i've seen this and i'm not sure if this was a result of the high submarine sailor transient population or what. maybe they figgered that american have to drink their beer cold since an unfortunately large percentage of us drink Bud and crap like that! (NOT ME!! NOT ME!! NO HITTING!!)

Just how warm do they serve their ales in England? They're at least "cool" aren't they?

Bigjohn, I didn't touch the CO2 pressure from what it was when it came to me (6-8 lbs/in???). I had some foaming initially with the first keg (Karl Strauss Oktoberfest) so I turned off the CO2 and let the beer flow naturally for a day or two. When output reduced to a trickle I turned the CO2 back on - no problem.
Maybe your uncle just has it cranked too high?

I try not to repeat myself, so I haven't been posting to this thread. Have missed it, though. Thanks for the bump and the contributions. I enjoy this part.

Finally got around to a Unibroue Edition 2004. Lovely.

Had a really great Hacker-Pschorr Fest bier. Surprisingly good, considering it was in a bottle.

Great local beer from Georgetown Brewing in Seattle called Manny's Pale Ale. Not widely distributed, but a super clean and drinkable American Pale.

Still loving Pike XXXXX Stout. Julie made me some ice cream with it the other day (subbed that for the Guinness in the original Emeril recipe). It was good, but we're going to keep working on the recipe.

I'm jealous of Peter and bigwill. Good call on the Framboise. What time should me and the missus stop by? She loves that stuff. Lindemans makes REALLY sweet lambics, but they are wonderfully intense and very approachable.

well not real warm, but not real cold either. kinda like if you pulled a beer out of the fridge and set out on the counter for 30 min. at least the stout was like that, the ales and ciders were a little colder.

In reply to:

thats what i do with my duvel's, chimay's and corsendonk's. they seem to open with flavor when they have the chance to set up for a while on the counter. it also gives time for the duvel to loose just a bit of head. if you uncork a duvel and start pouring immediately, you are gonna get about 80% head, and that a little excessive..

and my Duvel glass works perfect for enjoying the full flavor. there is a small D etched inside the bottom of the glass, that creates a beautiful, constant stream of bubbles that seem to appear from nowhere. i even got 2 glasses in case i want to share with a friend.. i rarely do..

and thats a good call on your part, it really does open up the flavor. if you pour it real slow down the side (preferable the INside)the head is kep to a minimum, which for a belgian is about 50% of the glass! . over in belgium anytime you get a beer on tap its just barely chilled and most of the time unfiltered. the good thing about being in the navy was the sheer number of awesome beer makin' countries we got to visit! i managed to bring back Palm, Corsendonk, and Grimbergen glasses from over there which my wife happened to break shortly after. hmmm... i wonder if she..?? naahhhhhh. a good place to get them is the gift packs they have near the holidays. i got a hold of a corsendock, Chimay, and a St. Bernardus this season. now i've just gotta clear some room on the shelves for more!!

Being March and all, I wondered if anyone could recommend a Märzen they particularly like. It could be the style, but I've never had one that knocked me off my feet. Sudwerk and Gordon Biersch are some local breweries that make the style.

I really like the Gordon Biersch Marzen when it is on tap at their breweries - not so fantastic in the bottle, though. I'm trying to think of a notable German Ur-Marzen, but I can't remember any specific names. Sounds like a job for the Tominator!
