On this 2014 Paddy's Day, I remember back to a year ago when I had a Guinness Draught on tap at a pub in Ireland. A small pub on the eastern side of the country far from Dublin. But this little stone pub, darkly lit with a great fireplace and not-so-great fish n' chips served me my first Guinness. Yes, that's right, never had one in the States at that point. That dark creamy rich taste and texture was amazing. And, now, sipping on a Guinness Draught bought in Kansas City, I see why people say you have to have Guinness in Ireland to appreciate it. 4.5/5 on tap in Ireland. 3.5/5 (at best) in a can in the States.
