    That may be so in the UK, but try telling that to an antipodean.
    99% of the population either work in the "beer cooler" industry, or make sure

    I don't wish to argue but why would Guinness put "server extra cold" on
    their cans? Maybe it's only meant to be drunk in extra cold rooms;-)

    From their web site:

    At home, you should let the can chill for at least 3 hours before pouring
    the contents of the can into a large glass in one smooth action.

    What's the difference between GUINNESS® Draught and GUINNESS® Draught Extra

    The temperature. GUINNESS® Draught is usually served at 6°C and GUINNESS®
    Draught Extra Cold should be chilled for a minimum of 3 hours before being
    served at a cooler 3.5°C.

  6. The same can be said for drinking red wine at room temperature. When
    it is stinking hot it is much better after having had a bit of
    chilling time in the fridge!!

    BTW - the antipodes is not necessarily the Australasia region. It is
    the geographic area diametrically opposite the place on earth where
    the person using the term is so I will presume you are in UK or
    thereabouts which is our antipodes!!

    And whilst on the subject of wine, you don't only have red with meat and white
    with fish, you drink what you want and how you want.

    Marketing. The colder something is, the more the flavour is concealed.
    This is the reason most single malt drinkers take whisky neat. A lot of
    people find Guinness too over-powering, God love it, and so they came up
    with the "Extra Cold" scheme for these people. I was in a pub in Oban when
    I first saw the "Extra Cold" tap next to the regular Guinness tap. For some
    reason they regular tap was botched. The bar maid kindly poured me two from
    the "Extra Cold" tap ... allowing the second time to reach a reasonable

    I order 2 as soon as I walk into the bar, the first one gets necked whilst the
    second is still settling, I don't like the taste of the first pint, the second
    tastes a tiny bit better, the third tastes pretty reasonable, the fourth tastes
    nice and creamy, the fifth finds me seeing double, and the sixth find me
    checking out the floor.

    I saw that Guinness Extra Cold at the Storehouse when I was in Dublin
    last year. (Very touristy, I know, but hey, I was a tourist...) I
    was amused to learn it's the exact same stuff, just served at colder
    temperature. Haven't seen it arrive in our neck of the woods in
    Canada yet, but I guess technically it's already here...
