I'm not sure what the difference is, but the stuff you get in Ireland is not the stuff you get here in the states.
Another possible explanation could be a need for preservatives, or maybe degradation from the trip across the Atlantic. In Ireland, they claim the Guinness tastes better the closer you get to Dublin (the brewery). Of course, the Irish are notorious BullPoopers. I've never noticed a difference. Nonetheless, freshness could be a factor.

I used to not be able to drink a lot of Guinness. Then I bounced in an Irish bar (a real Irish bar - the owner and half the staff were right off the boat). Now, I can drink just as much of it as I can any other beer.

I tried the Beck's Light, and it is pretty good. It is very watery, but doesn't taste bad. Warning: you will probably put down 3 before you realize it. I chug water all day, so when I pick up a watery beer it is easy to do the same.
For anyone who uses Fitday, you can plug it right in by following this link
It doesn't include grams of alcohol so you have to add 6g alcohol in the nutritional profile in fitday.

I like stouts and porters, but I drink lighter beers sometimes, depending on the circumstances and what I am eating at the time.

How could you guys forget Bud Light? 4.2% alcohol, 110 calories, 6.6 grams of carbs.
Not to mention it tastes so good once it hits the lips.

Bud Light is ok, but when I drink p1sswater, it's usually Coors Light.
Or whatever is on special. Last night at happy hour it was $5 pitchers of Miller Light.

Lol... Natty Light here. You can get a pounder (16oz) here for $1.00 any night of the week.

Guiness-1# satisfaction in a glass!
When I'm cutting calories I drink 1 glass less(ultimate light beer experience)
When I am posturing at a NYC hotspot I drink Heineken, the shear cost of $6-8 is enough to keep the quantities down to a minimum!
