IS THIS the worst pint of Guinness ever poured?
That's the question being asked after a woman at Dublin airport shared a picture of her recently purchased pint.
A good pint of Guinness takes skill. It takes patience. It also takes practice.
There should be a delicate balance between the main body of the pint and the head.
Not too much and not too little either.
But serious questions need to be asked after this pint of the black stuff surfaced online.
Posted by Kelly J, tweeting under the name @Little_Blue84, her disgusted at the Guinness in front of her is positive palpable.
"Err Dublin Airport, sort it out," she writes underneath.
It's difficult to know where to start with this monstrosity.
Not only is it shameful to see such a giant head on a pint, but for it to have occurred in Dublin is something approaching a national disgrace.

This sort of thing might occur elsewhere but in Ireland? In the Irish capital, no less? At an airport welcoming people to the Emerald Isle?!
This might be acceptable were it poured in some far-flung "Irish pub" half way across the world but this is Ireland, they really should know better.
Maybe the bar staff were in a rush. Maybe they didn't have time to let the pint settle.
Maybe they forgot the importance of tilting the glass at a 45 degree angle.
Maybe they forgot to fill the glass 4/5 of the way up before leaving it to settle.
Maybe all of these things happened at once. Maybe there is an explanation to all this.
Then again, maybe the answer to the question is a simple one: yes, this is the worst pint of Guinness ever poured.
