Okay ,So this begins my odd beer journey…
One day I had a headache , I would rather do with out the whole head issue to begin with. It has been a long time since I partook in drink, eating is right up there with ,well enjoying a meal,just cut out spirits. I have friends that know what beer pairs well with what food. Usually the Belgian variety. Some cause a headache. Seems like that with most. Once in a while I would go for a Grey Goose mixed with a splash of something.
So , one day I was discussing my headache and was told,don’t you know”Guinness is Good for You ” I was told.
I have had Guinness on tap , it has been ages. I went on a quest to find a single bottle.This was around Christmas time 2016. I had no idea about the Christmas time Special Brews. I was overwhelmed by the colors and choices of craft brews, local , imported. Geesh… Boxes of Good Cheer Gift sets.I was looking around and spotted the Guinness draught, in a bottle. My head swimming. I picked up the bottle ,ran away and came home. Read about the right temperature,sorted through copious videos about Guinness and the Pour . But , I did not have the proper glass. Oh nooo.
What to do , well the bottle says drink it out of the bottle. No Special Guinness glass necessary. Whew.. So, I did Chill it at the right temp,from the bottle it went.
I had gas pains for days, thought I had pancreatitis. But , I only had one.. Guinness. Besides the proper glass issue, Guinness was good, did not induce anything except gas and traveling gas pains…
So, as it goes. … First thoughts: smells like Guinness, a little thin and lighter than I remember, Huge on bubbles… -Need to try again for Proper review.-
I have been discovering different varieties, trying to stay with with barley malt beers. Cause.. You know.. I want to try something different… Guinness with be there..
Unfortunately I didn’t save or take a pic of my Guinness Draught bottle. Why do? there would be time ..This picture Courtesy of Creative Commons Guinness Draft Beer Bottle(part of a 3d project) by oski, published May 15, 2012 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:23087
