Boro v Preston North End 2-0 (Storey og, Tavernier)


Recommended Posts

Guinness is brewed in different countries and tastes very different due to water profiles, etc. Effectively Guinness ship extract to different locations and brew it from that, hence Nigerian guinness being about 7%. There used to be a pub in Dublin across the river from the Guinness brewery that imported guinness from Nigeria. 

Anyway, I'd agree with DZ. Guinness isn't even the best stout in Dublin, much less in Ireland or beyond. If you want to compare it to other Irish macro stouts, I'd take a Beamish over it any day of the week. Foreign Extra (from the bottle) is a decent drop, and surprisingly the guinness west indies porter isnt bad either. If you're ever in Cork (and the pubs are open) grab a Mi'Daza from any of the Rising Sons pubs (10 or 11 of them in the city) for a proper pint of stout, or the Porterhouse Wrasslers XXXX if you are in Dublin/Bray.

The water profile is really significant, and it's why Coke tastes so different as you go around the world. To be honest, it tastes different around the UK - I'm convinced the Coca-Cola plant in East Kilbride makes better cola than the other British factories, because Scottish water is softer with less limescale and minerals. There can be a tangible taste difference between one can and another, though rarely from two cans sold in the same multipack.

Anyway, back on topic, good game last night, Preston fans must be raging, etc.

Surely these large companies standardise the water they use? 

It's pretty easy to engineer the exact softness, mineral content etc. of water that you want, and I know Samuel Adams in the US standardise their water across all plants. Find it hard to believe a company like Coca Cola or Guinness wouldn't as they'd want their product to taste the same everywhere.

Beamish is decent (for a Macro) although it is brewed by Heineken now which I have a problem with.

I'm a big fan of White Hag's Black Boar BA stout, at 10.2% it's not one to have on a school night though (and if you had a session on it today you'd die, plus also probably be bankrupt by the end of the day!)

I do enjoy a good Porter though, If you ever get to Denmark treat yourself to a Limfjordporter. Nice and black. Don't drink it too cold.

Stouts and porters should never be drank (drunk?) cold. Room temperature, or if you have one, cellar temperature. Drinking stouts and porters (hell, most beers really) cold masks all the different flavour profiles.

It’s often about local tastes with Coca Cola.

They deliberately change the receipe to suit the local market. The western cola is often too sweet for other markets.

Yep Brazilian Coca Cola is way sweeter than in the Uk. When my mother in law came to visit I bought a couple of bottles of UK Coke as I knew it was her drink of choice. She took one sip and hated it and went back to drinking coffee with 4 sugars in it.

Fun fact, Scotland is the one of only 2 countries in the world where Coca Cola isn’t the top selling soft drink due to the popularity of Irn-Bru.

The other country is Cuba, they really haven’t allowed anything American into the country since 1959.

It was so obvious how Warnock was going to react, I actually called it on here at half time. 

Its just a big game, whether its berating referees one week or suffering from temporary blindness the next. 

People shouldn't hang on his every word after games when its so obvious what he's doing most of the time. He's not the only manager who does it as well they're mostly all the same. 

I don't think it is what you said though, not entirely anyway. I could be wrong but I think he's acknowledged it whilst saying he can't. I think what he's done here is even worse. He's persisting the trope whilst essentially acknowledging he's lying. It's ridiculous.

Happy Paddys Day to everyone,those that are Irish & all those that wanna be. Getting a bit worried this morning,just out & about & i have never seen so many people out walking & cycling, As this rate there is a danger that we will lose our hard earned reputation of Guinness skulling,potato eating layabouts.This can only lead to things like salads,wine & sobriety,Worrying times indeed!

Although they DO sell Red Bull in Thailand, its sales pale in comparison to the original energy drink it was inspired by, Krating Daeng.

Cuba now does sell Coca-Cola and there's been a single McDonald's outlet there since 1986, it's at Guantanamo Bay though, so not open to citizens of Cuba.

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
