    Is it Guinness? Then YES. 

    If not? Then…still YES.

    @Duncan:  So many of my friends shun stouts. So, I have no one to recommend any other ones to me (and I refuse to try new beers without recommendations). 🙁

    A long time ago it was noted that different beer brands taste differently depending on the time of year and time of day. Here one should follow a rule of thumb: pale beer should be drunk early in the day; heavier and darker beer should be left till evening. As for time of year, it is well known that black beers are best suited for winter, and pale beers for summer.

    There are also some points to be made in respect to music accompanying beer drinking. It turns out that dark and strong beers go down best to high-pitched music, whereas pale beers are best matched with low-pitched music.

    Beer, particularly beer in a keg, should be drunk from glasses or mugs made of natural materials such as wood, porcelain, glass, or ceramics. In contrast to plastic and metal receptacles, they do not ruin the beer’s taste with foreign flavors. Beer shouldn’t be drunk from a bottle either, as with this mode of consumption the beer fails to impact all the taste sensors of the tongue and some flavors get lost.

    Pour beer at the center of the glass from a height of 2 to3 centimeters. Wait till the foam settles, then top off the glass to 3/4 of its height.

    Drink beer in small sips without breaks. To appreciate the flavor in full, you should first drink half the glass, and than sip the remainder, taking your time.

    Beer should best be consumed at a temperature of +10 to +15 °C. According to custom, black beer should be cooled less and strong beer more. Make sure, however, that you do not overcool beer under any circumstances, as it will lose a great deal of its taste and may become clouded.

    Beer can be served with all dishes; it goes particularly well with fatty meat, fowl, smoked food, and high-fat cheeses, not to mention salted fish. But remember: to appreciate the taste of beer you shouldn’t “overpower” it with food. And ultimately, here are some easy to follow guidelines.

    Beer mustn?t be shaken or stirred. The oxygen in the air will quickly oxidize the beer and make it cloudy.

    Beer mustn’t be rapidly cooled (for instance, by putting bottles into a freezer) or heated.
    Never expose beer to sunlight: it ruins beer.

    Don’t put beer bottles on their sides: beer bottles must be stored upright to prevent the beer from touching the caps.

    Whoever voted no is a party pooper.

    G&T for me tonight. New distillery in the area, and I’m liking this spirit.

    There’s a famous Australian song called “I’d love to have a beer with @Duncan:  ” 🙂
