I am more of a bitter drinker, so I understand the temperature thing, 
but I don't drink Guinness often, so I can't tell you. Seems a shame to 
drink Guinness fast anyway, now that you mention it.

I just keep my homebrew kegs in the basement, so the beer is usually 
about 55-60 degrees. Really cold is only good for beer that tastes bad
