In the pub, the perfect pint of GUINNESS® Draught is served using a 'two-part' pour. First, start with a clean, dry glass. Pour the GUINNESS® stout into a glass tilted at 45 degrees, until it is 3/4 full. Allow the surge to settle before filling the glass completely to the top. Your perfect pint, with its creamy white head, is ready to drink.
I have to disagree with the guinness people here, IMHO the glass should NEVER be tilted when pouring a heavy beer - maybe it's just me but I can defineately notice a difference when I'm drinking Guinness or a heavy ale. Tilting the glass is Ok
with lager, cider or maybe a pint of 70 though.
Also, who in their right mind drinks chilled Guinness? Whoever thought that one up should be shot! It's just not right! Christ, they even sell it "extra cold" from the tap these days ..........
Just my opinion.
